      There is no reason why you can't use the DMZ. The agent you spoke to on Sky probably didn't even know what it is.
      Disconnect your Xbox from the router. It is advisable to do the rest with ethernet, not wireless.
      Give it a static or fixed address, 192.168.0.254(this can be less but not higher).
      Plug your Xbox back into the router and go the The router settings>Advanced>LAN IP Setup>Address Reservation.
      If you have given the Xbox a fixed IP properly you will see it listed. Select the radio button opposite it and click Add.
      All the details will appear below it, except the name, which will probably be 'Unknown'. Change this to Xbox and click apply.
      You may not have to but it is advisable to reboot the router and check the settings you made have remained.
      Now go to Advanced>WAN IP setup and select the button next to DMZ server.
      Type the Xbox's address into the spaces provided and click Apply.
      You can reboot again and make sure the settings have stuck.

      Then the router is faulty. Did you try a full reset. ie, hold the reset button on the rear in until the power light blinks four times. Save your settings before the reset so they are easy to return. If that does not work, there is nothing else you can do.

      I've been through this, some people cannot be helped.
