so here's the deal..

i have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and whenever i try to play online it says

"Your NAT type: Strict"

and i'm guessing that's why it won't let me find any servers when i play, so how do i open my NAT type?

i get my internet through the AirPort of a Mac, i'm running COD on windows, and my router number is 76.103.4.1.

thank you so much for any help!

NAT stands for Network Address Translation and besides changing the incoming IP to a private IP for your computers it is sort of like a Firewall also. Not sure about Strict NAT but will check on it. Might be a setting in your routers firewall.

What brand and model is your router?

Xbox Live and "STRICT NAT" - Beyond3D Forum

Read this all. About 1/2 way down the page is what appears to be a solution.
