Default [Q] Changing NAT Setting

Hey, Android community. Like many of us, I use my S4 as a true mobile hotspot on my computer, but I also use it on my XBox 360. However, I don't really use it to play against others online, but more just so I can sign into my account and play the games. My question is, does anyone know if it's possible to change the NAT(Network Address Translation) setting? I ask because it appears the reason I can't download certain games, such as Tomb Raider or Batman Arkam City, is because of the NAT setting being set to moderate. I know it isn't a speed thing because I get an average of 30+ Mbps, and the game is only 6.47 gigs. I've been able to download a slightly bigger game through Steam on my computer in under 50 minutes. If anyone else has run into this problem and knows a workaround, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The NAT setting is not your problem here.

The only time that matters is when finding opponents to play against on live, as anything but open NAT makes it difficult for them to connect directly to you without your console acting as the client (outbound).

I know this isn't an Xbox 360 support forum, but can you list any error messages you received?

I can't remember the exact wording, but it says something about my NAT being set to moderate when I test my wireless connection. I can't download the game(s) I mentioned in my previous post even though I have 30+ Mbps download speeds, where I can download a 7+ gig game through Steam on my computer. When I tried to download the Tomb Raider game at my sister's house, it worked fine albeit a lot slower than I thought it should.
