My Belkin F9K1002V2 will not open ports

I just bought a Belkin F9K1002V2 about a week ago and it will not let me open the ports I need for my Xbox 360. I tried going to portforward.com, but they don't have my router listed for some reason. My old Belkin router was just fine when it came to static IPs and opening ports, but this one just won't let me do it. I went into virutal servers in my router settings and enabled the ports I need, I then manually put the network information in my Xbox, but when I do that, it won't connect to Xbox Live. Could it be that it's because my router has WPA/WPA2 turned on?

Whatever is it, it's driving me crazy. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

I have a Belkin N450 (F9K1003V1) and Port forwarding is done under Virtual Servers. Does that exist on yours?

I have 4 ports forwarded with no problem.

You connect with your browser by going to 192.168.2.1 and login. Click on Virtual Servers on the left.

Thank you, but as I said in my post, I did try doing that. I know how to forward ports, I did it for my old router. But when I do try to forward the appropriate ports, it then won't let my Xbox connect at all.

To tesr, turn off Wireless Security in the router, see if the XBOX works. If yes, then turn it back on again and find the XBOX setup that allows you to specify the security key. I had to do this for my Grandson but it was several years ago so I don't remember what or where to do this.

I found this: Xbox LIVE wireless connection
