Who all has a "Strict" NAT setting?

I am stuck with the strict NAT rating, and I have tried a few things to bring it to open. I chenged the DMZ setting on my Linksys router to make the 360's ip address completly open. Did all the thing it tells you to do online.

I am freaking lost, and I know this is why it takes so long to find matches on GOW2

Plug your xbox directly to the internet connect and bypass all other devices that are on your network. If its still slow as fuck its not your router or settings, its your internet connection.

I have this same problem. It takes for ever to find people to join when I'm playing on live. But I also have no lag during game play.

Well when I play by myself i get host 1 out of three times, so I think a strict setting doesn't dictate host.

I think my strict NAT settings may have something to do with the fact that my router is 5 years old. I ended up buying a D-Link DIR-655 from ebay. So I hope that solves my problems.
