Moderate NAT but weird connectivity to xbox live

Hey everyone, quick question here. So I have my Mac Pro as my "wireless" source for my xbox. I have an ethernet plugged in from my mac( which is on wifi) to the xbox. I have been trying to open up my NAT because I lag out of zombies when I get to higher rounds for some reason. According to my router, I have a source getting internet from the ethernet and wifi. I am not sure really if the ethernet is my xbox. I have checked the IP's for my xbox on automatic settings and compared it to the settings on what the router says and they dont match... Long story short, do i need to make my laptop have all the ports forwarded/ DMZ or the ethernet? This doesnt make too much sense but any help would be great. Thanks

You're trying to do Internet Connection Sharing for an Xbox, right?  Then you need to adjust your router to make sure port 3074 is not blocked.

But should that port be forwarded on my xbox or on my computer? Since my computer is giving the internet directly to it rather then the router.

Hi

A moderate NAT in that set-up is to be expect because your router will be NAT'ing the ISP provided address once and then your MAC is NAT'ing it again

Is there no way to connect to the router wired or wireless instead?

Forward 3074 to the Xbox if UPnP does not solve the problem.
