    First give your 360 a static IP (you'll need to know your default gateway and subnet mask. To get those go to run, type "cmd" and press enter, type ipconfig for the needed information like gateway and subnet mask). The IP adress you can make up yourself (in the ipconfig screen check your computer's IP and use something like that, but only change the very last number. For example 192.168.0.10X, only change the X. It could be slightly different for you though.)

    Then once you succeeded in getting a static IP, go to your router settings and open the following ports for your new xbox's IP:

    TCP 80
    UDP 88
    UDP 3074
    TCP 3074
    UDP 53
    TCP 53

    (I hope you know how to get into your router settings...otherwhise you might have to answer the questions of the people above me first.

    This might be an extremely noobish thing to say, but in the IW advice it says go to your router settings and enable "Plug & Play".

    I find that if I am in "Strict", if I restart the game quickly it almost always turns to "Open". Don't know why, but this works about 90% of the time.

    That's actually all you really need to do, lol. I have a linksys that has the option as "Nat Filtering - Open / Strict" for mine though.
