Westell 7500 port forwarding page not resolving
I have a Westell 7500 modem and when I have to reboot it because my internet connection crapped out again which is about once a week, I also have to set up port forwarding for my xbox 360 all over again but now I've noticed it's not resolving the port forwarding page and when it does it takes about half an hour of refreshing to get it. It's always at the same place too, when I get to the "add" part to actually make the port rule it stops there. It's never done this before and it started a couple of days ago as of writing this. Everything else resolves fine just not that one page.

This is what you need to do: Setup a Static IP on Xbox.
For direction on how to setup a Static IP on the Xbox:
#1 You must find the DHCP Range in the Westell 7500.
#2 You must make sure that the DHCP range does not occupy the whole subnet.
For example if the Westell 7500's IP Address is 192.168.1.1, the Starting IP Address is 192.168.1.2, the Ending IP Address is 192.168.1.254 - then you have to change the Starting IP Address so that it is 192.168.1.100
#3 The Static IP that you setup on the Xbox has to be outside of the DHCP range of the Westell 7500.
For example if the Westell 7500's IP Address is 192.168.1.1, the Starting IP Address is 192.168.1.100, the Ending IP Address is 192.168.1.254 - then the IP Address for the Xbox has be between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.99
#4 And then see: portforward.com -> Guides -> Configuring a Static IP Address -> Setup a Static IP address on the Xbox 360
