Anyone know how.

Im using BT voyager 205 ADSL and ive tried the offical BT help no luck

Not with a 205 I don't, sorry. I suggest reading the full PDF manual. However, I can't see what Network Address Translation would have to with any problems; I would expect to have to make a port rule of some kind. Perhaps we can help if you tell us exactly what kind of problem you are trying to fix.

I need to make my NAT open as when it is strict i cannot connect to other peopoles games or talk to people who also have a strict NAT.

So i need to make it Open instead of strict to optimize my game play

I still think that you are talking about the router's firewall, not the NAT. click here gives the definition of NAT; it is used by routed networks purely to allow multiple clients to share the same internet IP through a gateway. For simplicity, you can enter one client into the De-Militarized Zone (DMZ), assuming that the 205 has one.

im using net and live through it via usb and ethernet and ive tried the DMZ but still no

If you have tried the DMZ, then your router is not at fault and you need to look elsewhere. A client firewall perhaps.
