You'll have to find the ports that this game is using and open them. For that you'll have to find what ports the game needs to have opened and then go to your router settings,find port forwarding and enter the information. Note: 1 port can only be used for 1 application.

That and DO NOT run XBX Live behind a Router, since it has a firewall. Just do a direct connection to the XBX live, or use a splitter, and don't make the connection flow through the routers Firewall port. That should solve it.
