#1 Log-in to the Westell.

 

#2 In the Westell go to Advanced -> IP Address Distribution OR to Advanced -> Private LAN (which ever exist in your router)

 

#3 What is the Starting and Ending IP Address?

 

#4 In the Westell go to Advanced -> Universal Plug and Play OR to Advanced -> UPnP (which ever exist in your router)

 

#5 If you do not have at least two special computers that support Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) where you can not define the ports that they use, turn off UPnP in the router.

A perfect example. At least two game consoles. Any two (Two Xboxes, two Playstations, One Xbox and one Playstation).

#6 If you have at least two special computers that support UPnP where you can not define the ports that they use: Do only use one at a time OR are there times when at least two are on?

"Strict" or "Moderate" NAT on an Xbox 360 won't slow down transfers. The same goes with file transfers on the PC. If your NAT was slowing down the connection, I would think you would have bigger problems than slow speeds. Can you post up a Speed Test and tell us which speed you're supposed to be on?

While you are not on FIOS, I think the post by JayTeen that was posted on 11-18-2011 at 11:12 AM in this other thread will help you.
