Skylanders SuperChargers NAT Issues
What is NAT?
If you are experiencing connectivity or lag issues while playing Skylanders SuperChargers, you may have an issue with your NAT setting. This guide explains the basics on NAT types, and provides troubleshooting to help improve your connection.
“NAT” stands for “Network Address Translation.” This is a security protocol that can be altered by the user to regulate the freedom with which your router will connect your device to other devices on the Internet. Your NAT can be set to three different security levels – Open, Moderate, or Strict on Microsoft devices or Type 1, Type 2, or Type 3 for Sony and Nintendo devices.
Most people keep their NAT to “Open” or “Type 1” as this allows the most freedom in connecting to other devices across the Internet, gives the fastest data transfer speeds and provides the best connections. In order to function properly, Skylanders SuperChargers needs to have an Open or Type 1 environment.
