    Ok, So I have a Motorola SBG900 modem/router that I lease from my cable company. For some reason the router part of it makes my NAT settings on my xbox at MODERATE so i always get kicked and can't talk to some friend online. I called my ISP and they told me since I am leasing this modem my IP address changes daily and so port forwarding won't really help me unless I want to go in and change it on a daily basis. They also gave me the number to motorola who i called and the man pretty much assured me he could help me out with this problem but it would cost my $30 >.<. I don't really know what else to do

    Is there any way to get around this or should I take this modem back and get a regular modem and a wireless router and this should take care of my problem. I don't really want to pay the 30 because I know if it doesn't fix my problem they're not going to refund me my $30 back. I'll just be SOL.

    Can you set your XBox to use a static internal IP? If so, get it to run on a static IP and port forward to that IP.
