Opening ports for my xbox live NAT type

I need help on how to open the ports needed to successfully pull my NAT setting from "strict" to "open" on XBox Live. Those of you here that have it, probably know what Im talking about.
 
The ports I need to open are the following: 
 
UDP 88
 
UDP 3074
 
TCP 3074
 
Ive tried already, but it didnt work. I think I did something wrong.
Thanks

You need to go to UPnP Forwarding, which should be under the advanced tab. Then enter those port numbers.  Just forward them to the x-box's IP address and you are good to go.
 
Good luck

Hi AEX,
First thing you have to make sure is that, you have to assign a static ip address on XBOX like 192.168.1.10, with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and gateway 192.168.1.1
Now Forward the ports you have to this static ip address, which you assign to your XBOX
Also make sure you are running latest firmware on your linksys router. You can check from www.linksys.com/download , If it is not latest, download and update to latest version.
