You may have to forward certain ports to the IP the XBOX is running??? OR like on the linksys put it in the DMZ zone and see if that works if so then for sure you need to find out what ports need to be forwarded..

the xbox has a trouble shooting feature, and it runs its tests and shows the ip and dns is configured, but i check my speed and it shows no upload or download speed.

Unless you have a manual filtering abililty or firmware is released enabling xbox, it may not be possible.

you shouldnt have to do any of that. the xbox works just fine with NAT. a friend of mine has it running behind his wireless router and getting dhcp from it. works like a charm. unless the netgears have broken NAT. then you may be stuck with port forwarding.
good luck

M$ says this router needs a "workaround" for XBOX Live:
