I'm sorry i don't have a solution to your problem but i just thouht i'd clear it up for you a bit. You and your borther will both have the same external ip address. By this i mean the ip address you use on the internet (OUTSIDE of your home network) will be the same. This is because it is set by your isp and you can only get one ip address with one phone line.

One work around I've seen, although never tried, is to run one in the DMZ and then forward the correct ports to the other Xbox 360. Some say it work and others still report having problems. You'll have to give both Xbox's static IP address for this to work.
I'm assuming your router doesn't support UPnP?
Then again, there is always the option of purchasing a router that is known to handle the "quirks" of running two consoles through one connection.

I tried setting up static IPs for the xboxes but had other connectivity problems I will look into trying that again though with one in DMZ
