Thanks for that help Phil.  I double checked my settings and I had some
information wrong on the port forwarding and the firewall rules.  Now that I
changed it like you said it looks right but it still comes back as moderate.
I am not sure why.  I think I have to look a little more into it as the
ports alone are not working to resolve the moderate status.

The affects of MODERATE or STRICT NAT status:

In order for my original XBox to see an open NAT connection to XBox Live
I had to "port forward" the following traffic:

TCP 88
TCP 3074
UDP 3074

I think it is reasonable to assume that an XBox 360 uses the same ports.

BTW, Netgear has these port numbers listed at
