I have a netgear WGR614v5

I enter the IP address I assigned for the ports in my 360
192.168.1.4
and it also asks for gateway address and subnet address.
What do I do there?
I opened every port that it said to on the site you gave me.

Subnet = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.1.1

DNS 1 = 4.2.2.1
DNS 2 = 4.2.2.2

I entered all that and still no connection.
it doesnt even get past the first part.
what would be keeping my router from even establishing a connection to the 360?

Post all of the settings that are in your 360 network connection (IP, subnet, gateway, etc) and an ipconfig from your computer

I just checked my connection and tried using a friend's 360 instead and he connected perfectly fine. I believe that my 360's ethernet port is just damaged.
Problem solved. I need to send it in for repair.
