Windows 7: Westell 7500 Port Forwarding

Westell 7500 Port Forwarding

I have a Westell 7500 modem/router. I've been having trouble opening up ports. I've gotten to the point where the ports said "closed" (cause usually they are stealth), but still they will not open.

I've set up a static IP, added the ports to my firewall, forwarded the ports, and nothing.

There are about 5 accessories in this house that gets a connection from the modem/router. I do not know if that could be a problem or not.

I really don't know what else to try - but if I haven't proved enough information, just tell me what you need to know.

Help would be appreciated - Thanks in advance

Verizon Westell 7500
I'm using WPA-2 for my wireless network with a Verizon Westell 7500 wireless router/modem. No problem there but I was curious as to why the Verizon software I use to get to the router recommends using WEP because it encrypts your wireless traffic. I've never heard anyone recommend WEP over WPA.
