Port forward help please on a TG585 router

I am having problems with my router and setting the correct ports forward. I am pulling my hair out over it!
I have set up the correct Xbox live ports; 53, 80,88,1863,3074 in the game and application centre. I named the application "Xbox live" and assigned it to the Xbox console with a fixed IP address.
No matter what i do i can not get the ports to open, I have tried all sorts and although the ports are assigned to the Xbox to be open they just will not  open. I have used the port forward checker and all i get once ive tested them is this;
IP address; **********************
Ping result; we were not able to ping your router!
Port result; your port is not open or not reachable!
How can I get the ports open and to stay open?

Re: Port forward help please on a TG585 router

I have done all that bud, as I mentioned in my first post.
I have done everything in this guide; http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Thomson-Alcatel/TG585v8/Xbox_Live_360.htm
Still no joy, I skipped no steps, set up a static IP on the PC and the Xbox if that helps.

Problem solved. I have figured out how to get the ports to stay open and I know how to test them too. If you want to know how to set up Xbox live portforwarding in your TG585 v8 feel free to message me.

Especially if you're experiencing NAT issues.

Re: Port forward help please on a TG585 router

I set that up a while ago using telnet. Thanks anyway.
Since I sorted this out I have had a solid 4 bar connection on any games I have played online and suffered minimal lag (the lag problems I have had have been the lag compensation which is a known fault with the like of cod etc) and the connection speed has not dropped once aswell as having sub 20 millisecond ping times. Hardly any packet loss either, I am really happy with the connection at the moment.
