    My modem is entirely too far from my xbox to used the wired connection so I had to improvise with using Internet Connection Sharing on my Windows 8 Pc, My Router defines the default gateway of 192.168.254.254 and when I use the Ethernet port on my PC for ICS my Xbox is getting the IP address of 192.168.137.207 and my connection is moderate, anyone have any idea of a way that I can work around and have the Xbl ports forwarded to my xbox this way, I've searched google for days with no avail

    This will likely be a feature from with in the router itself. You will type the address for the brand of router you are using such as linksys router: 192.168.1.1 d-link and netgear: 192.168.0.1 belkin is sometimes: 192.168.2.1 into your web browser. Once you have the right address in it should prompt you to enter username and password credentials. Once thats out of the way then you will have to dig around the configuration tabs and menus to find port forwarding. This can be different location and setting up for each brand I suggest consulting the documentation that came with it or doing a google search for "how to set up a 'my router' for port forwarding" I dont know if this answers your question or not but I hope it helps somehow.

    Seems to me like it would be a lot easier though just to drop $50 if you can and get a wireless adapter. XBOX 360 WIRELESS ADAPTER.

    Which i dont lol

    I have neither of the routers you listed im using a DSL Modem/Router Combo, and you didnt seem to understand that I'm using Internet sharing and my xbox ip is different than that of my pc, Pc is using the Internal Ip of 192.168.254.1 and the xbox is using 192.168.137.207, which is no-where remotely the same as my computer's Ip. With that being said I can connect the xbox to the modem and get Open ports but the modem is in the living room where as my xbox is in my room

    Ok, change your pc's ip address to a static one and then manually configure it and enter in the same ip as your xbox? Think that might help you? Still say go for the adapter tho! ;) PS you can look up the IP address to your router/modem combo on google I was just giving a few examples. Every router has one, they have to.

    try this

    1. Open Network and Sharing center (start/control panel/ network and internet/network and sharing center)

    2. Click change adapter settings

    3. Right click on your shared internet connection ( in this case should be your WIFI connection), select properties, sharing tab, check: Allow other network users to control or disable the shared internet connection.

    4. Stay on the sharing tab and click settings, uncheck everything under settings, now click add:
