Hey guys, as of now, my router has a strict NAT setting, and I know how to change it and all, but my dad is a little skeptical about placing something on our wireless network outside of the firewall through the DMZ/Port forwarding. Could you guys confirm for me that, through using only my 360's IP address (my 360 is hooked up to the network through my pc, if that makes a difference), there is no security risk to either the network or any of our computers by using Port Forwarding or the DMZ?

The chance of someone compromising your ENTIRE network because of port forwarding and using a DMZ for your 360 is very very unlikely. The firewall and closed ports still protecting the other devices will maintain their individual protection.
