I don't have your Internet connection details or OS
so we'll start from the beginning:
1.Log into the router and under the Setup tab click on "Setup Wizard" then on the next page click on "Launch Internet Connection Setup Wizard" In step 1 leave the password unchanged and click next. On step 2 select your time zone. On step 3 this is important; select your Internet connection type. On the 4th step leave the Address Mode in Dynamic and enter the username and password supplied to you.
Once you have configured your Router to work with your Internet connection type, you should now get a Moderate reading when you do the Network test in the Xbox dashboard.
2. Now go here http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm and follow the instructions to setting up a static IP address on your computer.
3. After setting up a static IP address on your computer, go here http://www.portforward.com/english/r...x_Live_360.htm and follow the instructions. Something you should keep in mind which isn't mentioned on this page is, for each port you forward under the box that says "IP Address", don’t put the IP address of your computer, you put in the new IP address of the Xbox 360 which was one of the 5 that was generated from that link in step 2. What you are doing is giving the Xbox 360 a new IP address and that new IP address needs to forward these port numbers to the Router.
4. Go into the Xbox dashboard and edit the Network settings. Under Basic Settings click on IP address and set it to manual. Now enter in the new IP address you chose for the Xbox 360. The subnet mask and the gateway is the same as your computer. (You can find these by clicking start> run> type in ‘cmd’ then when the box comes up type in ipconfig/all
Under the DNS Settings it should be set to automatic and under Additional Settings leave them empty. Run the test in the dashboard and it should now be Open!
