      Ok, you are going to have to open some ports. Before you do this though you will need to have a static IP address for your xbox. Thanks to
      this is what to do:-
      The easy way to get a static address

      The easiest way to assign a static IP Address to your Xbox is to actually just leave it on automatic.

      So set the Xbox to auto in the System Blade/Network Settings.

      Once your router has assigned the xbox an IP Address view the IP Address on the System Blade/Network settings.

      Write down the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway. Then simply go into the IP Address settings, change the settings to manual and enter all of the information you wrote down.

      Using this method means there's a possibility you could get a duplicate IP Address later on as the router might hand out that same address again. If it does, just add 30 to the last digit of the IP address. e.g. if its make it

      In your case i would recommend using just to be safe.
      Now it's time to open the relevant ports:-

      Follow this guide making sure you enter the correct static IP that you just made.

      Now just reboot your router and xbox, then test connection and you should have an Open NAT.

      Good luck and "Happy Gaming".
