Xbox connection settings

I have opened all ports for xbox on my router, and forwarded em to my laptop, i do not have wireless access to my xbox, but i connect it to xbox live with my laptop via ethernet cable. I also opened all ports for xbox live on my firewall. Xbox connection says my nat settings are still strict and i can do everything but connect with one friend.

A strict NAT when using ICS and a firewall on your PC is normal, I would recommend using bridging instead and then opening the ports on your PC's firewall
