To open the NAT to be able to connect to the server and to other people correctly you need to have the correct ports open;
Xbox 360 http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/ap...a_id/15722/related/1
http://portforward.com/ is a very good website which shows you how to open ports depending on your particular router.
Putting the console in DMZ should help, this will open all ports so DO NOT use it on PCs;
On the router there should be an option to enable (DMZ) (see router manual)
DMZ basically means "Demilitarised Zone.
This is a feature for Network Devices that need certain ports to be open. When this is set pointing to the Xbox 360/ PS3 ip address. It will basically open every port directly to the Xbox 360/ PS3.
You should go to your Xbox 360/ PS3 settings and get the IP address of your Xbox 360/ PS3. Then enable manual on IP settings.
Then in your router, enable DMZ and then enter the IP address of your Xbox 360/ PS3 in the space provided.
Then reset your router.
i followed the instructions given in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mkRRpKkDvM (sorry, it's in italian...)
and now i have NAT 1 (colour green) in ACR MP...
but i still have:
"LOADING: BAD" ( <-- trying to translate... sorry)
and it seems that nothing changed playing in matches...
did i do anything wrong?
"Ubi Maior minor cessat." "italian Templar ELITE"

Im afraid good NAT dosnt always correlate to good speed - it just means youll be able to play with others easier, regardless of how good your's or their internet is.
no you did it right open NAT just makes you more accessible IMO your helping out the people with strict NAT types since green NATs are the only people they can play with.
I have been playing this game for about a month now, playing mainly assassinate. Once the map pack is released locks take much longer to register and the whole experience for me and many others has downgraded. I dont no why ubisoft thinks its a good idea to destroy the playability of their games by releasing map packs that through past experiences have done nothing but make the game worse. I for one was rather excited about playing siena again but with the increased lag / latency issues it is more game breaking than increasing potential which new maps can bring. So this dlc along with everything else ubi has done shows that they most likely dont do private testing with their games and dlc's but instead just want their money and do not care about making their top selling game go from great to increasingly frustrating and nearly unplayable. Seriously unisoft my biggest complaint before this was when people join and leave games it blocks out my compass.
I just got a very unhelpful response from tech support. After writing in telling them what I had already tried that hadn't worked (plugged in direct to modem via ethernet, recycled modem, tested xbox live connection, reset connection, logged in and out of xbox live) they sent me this response:
My connection displays at NAT Optimal. If Optimal means what the word actually means, I gather my connection is good. Am I way off here? I also tried (just for ****s and giggles) to try connecting to multiplayer on AC Brotherhood. Started right up, no problem. I then went to Revelations, tried connecting to the U Play store (had not previously been able to connect) and it connected no problem. Went back to multiplayer and *GASP* "cannot connect to servers at this time, please try again later"
What the hell man? Is this what I get for purchasing DLC from you guys? I even tried installing the game directly to my xbox. No change.
*** EDITED TO ADD ***
i will say, though, i tried playing in 3D mode last night. even though i have nothing left to do in the solo game, it was pretty rad fighting guards and jumping around rooftops in 3D!!

With an orange NAT you may find it difficult to connect to multiplayer games, hear or even see people. An orange NAT means moderate and that some ports are not open, the only way to solve this is by opening the ports suggested. Have you also opened the ports on any router you may be using? a router will also block these ports.
