Is the pc you are using connected wirelessly? Only computers connected with a cable are allowed to access the configuration page.

If you have a computer connected to it (possibly wireless) find out the ip address by opening command prompt and typing ipconfig . then there should be something labeled default gateway. Copy and paste the default gateway into your browser and hit enter. It should ak you for a username and password, type in the on that you set it up with. Now, you need to find out the IP address of the xbox, and then navigate through the router config and find where to forward the port. From there it should be pretty self explanator. Hope it works!

Next, open up your web browser (we recommend
using Internet Explorer or Firefox). Delete the address that is
currently present in the Address Bar.
Once the address is deleted, type http://10.0.0.200 into the Address Bar.
2 You will now be logged into the Status Page of the AP+4. On the left side, click the option that reads Setup Wizard.
Click on the Next button to get started on the wizard.
3 You will now be on "Choosing an Operating Mode" screen. Here you will select Ethernet Client.
Click on Next to continue.
4 The next page is "Selecting a Time Zone." You can skip this and click Next to continue.
5 This will bring up the "LAN Interface Setup" screen.
On this page, you will need to change DHCP to Client. Once that is done, click Next to continue.
6 You will now be on "Setting up Internet Connection."
WAN Access Type needs to be set to DHCP Client. Once it is set to DHCP Client, you can click Next to continue.
7 The "Configuring the Wireless Network" screen will open.
This is where you will need the SSID and Channel of your network. Change the current SSID to match the one provided by your wireless router. Also, change the Channel to match that of your router as well. Once those are changed, you can also change Wireless Operation to Client. Click Next to continue.
8 This will take you to the final page of the Setup Wizard "Setting Up Wireless Security."
Here is where you need the Encryption type and Passphrase/Network Key. Enter the Encryption to match that of your router, if applicable. If you do have encryption, you will have a Network Key or Passphrase, depending on the Encryption type. Select Passphrase if you use WPA or WPA2. Select Hex if you are using WEP. Once the Network Key or Passphrase has been entered, click Finish.
9 Power down your computer and remove the AP+4. Plug the AP+4 into the Ethernet port of your gaming console. Follow the instructions that came with your gaming console to set up your Internet connection. The AP+4 will appear to be a Wired Connection to your Gaming Console.
