Port Forwarding not working

It won't let me chose the option to Port forward and I cannot figure out why. Under the advanced setup, it doesn't let click the "Port Forwarding / Port Triggering" tab. I would like to use this to set up a static IP address with my Xbox to fix my NAT type. please help

   Does it threaten you with GBH, or what?

   Do you mean that the control is "grayed out"?  To what is the
R7300DST connected, some other router?  Is the R7300DST configured as a
wireless access point?

      The following router features are not available (grayed out) when
      the router is in AP mode:

   If there's another router between your ISP and the R7300DST, then all
that stuff probably should be done on that outer router.
