So, I wanted to try the live version of my GTA 4 out today and kept getting the message
'disconnected because your router/nat is too strict'
I have a wired Linksys router (BEFSR41). Is this an easy thing to reset, if so am I sacrificing anything by doing it?
On a side note this is actually the second used copy of the game I've picked up the first one stalled my system a lot this one does it from time to time. It's a new XBox and it only happens with this game. Is it just a glitchy game? It's fun but it seems to be giving me a lot of headaches.
That model is on their list of fully compatible models:
BEFSR41 (v3) 1.04.8, 1.05.00
Those numbers after are the supported firmware versions so make sure you have that up to date. You should be able to get an open NAT with that model no problem. Moderate or strict NAT means you won't be able to play games with everyone else, though sometimes it would still work.
80GB PS3 may scale back backwards compatibility (blog.wired.com) Does this sound like they scaled back the pricing on existing units to sell them off, so they can keep producing the newer 80GB units without the costly hardware emulation?
