I've spend last hour or so trying to get that NAT thingy turn green, and I'm on the end of my rope. I have Billion Bipac 5200 RC, UPnP is enabled, ports 3478 and 8889 are open. And yet, UpLauncher still gives me that my NAT type is PortRestrictedCone. Any ideas?

[PC] Your Nat type is: PortRestrictedCone

Play something else?
Sometimes a router reboot or an ipconfig release + renew does the trick (although mine stays green but just doesn't sign in), sometimes it's just dodgey for a week then fixes itself.

Maybe the launcher just doesn't recognize your router. I have the same 'problem', although ingame everything works fine. Do you see a lot of players bumping and flying all over the place?

Well, when i used my router without the ports forwarded, just uPnP, when i opened the launcher id have moderate cone or something, but if i closed the launcher and re opend id get green Full cone.
Now i forwarded the ports, and kept uPnP tho, now its always green lol.
Try using PF port checker to test if your ports are open (from the ones i tested, only that program gives me accurate results) And if they are, never mind the launcher

Thanks on your suggestions.
Yep, I got those bugs with flying cars couple of times already. They always make me laugh hard, lol.
Tried to open/close it multiple times without no luck. Also, downloaded and tried to install PFPortCheck program you've recommended, but I can't install it. I just can't be bothered with it to tell the truth.

I had similar problem and found out problem was in firewall so I made new rule (Eset Smart security in my case) for Uplauncher, I think it is similar with Windows firewall. So when I press allow everything is green. But when I press deny everything goes red and go play offline without turning off my router. Hope it helps, druže

People really shouldn't pay too much attention to it. Both the Game Server Available and the NAT type statuses are known to not be 100% applicable/correct. I have a NAT type of moderate cone or something but I have a perfect connection with most people (taking away the servers seem to be doing a destruction derby last few months), and when the servers are not available, the Launcher still says everything's ok.

I've had that error many times, but I don't think it affects gameplay that much. Sometimes I get the flying cars even when I'm in the green.

I'll double check my Windows Firewall settings, thanks for advice!
Well I guess you are right, everything worked fine so far for me too. I'll just ignore it from now on.
So it can happen even when in green? Good to know. I was affraid it has something to do with my NAT type, but obviously not.
Thanks once again for your help!
