Xbox Live connection issues

i just bought a refurbished x box after my original one bascally imploded. I had xbox live running on that through a ethernet hardwire to my router which is a Dlink DI-614+.

Now when i try to get xbox live running on this one it will not let me due to my router apparently because i connected directly to my modem and bypassed the router and it connected fine once i entered the PPPoE on the xbox. However when its pluged into the router no matter what i do it will not connect
eg. gateway,dns, and etc. Also the router is apparently not accepting the DMZ to be turned on which would allow access to the net without a fire wall. So is there any way i could set up a server/ open a firewall port range etc to allow my xbox to connect?

Please get back to me soon

search back for my post on the exact same issue with my XBOX Live... I Curently have my DMZ enabled (had to input the Xbox's IP Adress to do that) and I have Port forwarding turned on for TCP Port 3074 XBox Live. I am Using the linksys wrt54g. Those two settings helped increase my server host speeds by 1 green bar on the latency meter.

Ps... I have the original verision Xbox... bought on initial release date... works great still.
