So, recently I had a problem connecting to one of my friends on xbox live. We both have open NATs but we just couldn't connect. So I read that I needed to forward a port for my XBOX. I believe(but im not sure) that you have to have a static ip address to forward a port. However, when I set up a static ip on my XBOX the NAT type is Strict. So then I looked at my UPnP settings and my XBOX wasn't showing up on the table that shows all connected devices. I then raised the Hops up because i read that would help. At this point im clueless, and I can't find a guide anywhere on the internet for it. So, It would be AWESOME if someone could help me.
