Can't port forward because dynamic IP

Can anyone help me here,

the problem is when I port forward all my ports that I need on my router with my Xbox one's IP,

i click apply then reboot my router so the changes work, then power cycle my console,

i then load my Xbox back up and go into settings and my Xbox ip has changed, so the port forwarding i previously just did don't take effect.

Appreciate any help in advance

Re: Can't port forward because dynamic IP

Set up the Xbox with a static IP in the DHCP reservation table, then do the port forwarding to the static IP, assuming you have SH ,SH2 or SHAC

Re: Can't port forward because dynamic IP

You cant port forward ports to 2 IP's. the best thing to do is put VM router into modem mode and then purchase a 3rd party router.
