Default Xbox 360 Cannot connect!

Sorry if maybe there's another post about this problem, but I cannot find it.
I have the DG834G-V5 with the latest firmware, but I cannot connect my Xbox with Live services. I tried to set every paramete possible, but nothing changes.
How can I connect my Xbox with this router without using cable?

Thanks

Hi exagon,

The NETGEAR router is a firewall. It blocks ports to prevent attacks from programs or users from the Internet to the computers or devices behind your router. Each application on the Internet uses ports. For example, when you browse the Internet, it uses port 80. Before we proceed to any troubleshooting procedures, check if the Xbox is working directly to the modem. This will verify if there is something wrong with the Xbox. If the game console won't connect to the Internet when directly connected on the modem, it means that it is not your router blocking the connection.

Below is the link on how to forward the application port for Xbox on your router:

Thanks for your answer.
When I connect Xbox via cable, everything works. I set everything as explained but nothing changes. Xbox doesn't communicate with Netgear! But Netgear works with my notebook!

Do not connect. In less than half second, Xbox tell me that there is a problem with wireless transmission. If I use my friend Digicom adsl router, everything works.
I already open ports: 80, 88, 53, 3074 TCP and UDP but nothing changes.

If you look at that thread I linked to, it's a Sticky thread at the top of this forum, you will see that your problem is a known issue.
