Hey thanks a lot, I'll give it a shot later .
I doubt upgrading to DD-WRT (or even official firmware) will solve your strict NAT issues. Sounds like you have a double NAT on your network (xbox behind router + modem/router) and the only thing you can do for this is either set up the modem to be a bridged modem (making it strictly a modem and removing the router function) or setting up your router as just an AP/Switch (link here for how to do that) and doing the proper port forwarding on your Thomson modem/router after setting a default IP address on your xbox.
I am unaware how much you can change on the Thomson modem in regards to bridging or port forwarding as some ISP lock their modems down where you can't change anything. I had the same issues as you had until I did the above (and eventually replaced the router with an unmanaged switch.
