    Is it possible to set the router up to allow an xbox to be set in DMZ and still have remote access to the router interface? I just spent quite some time going through all the options I could think of to fix remote access because it was working the other day. I forgot I set the xbox up in DMZ to try to help with lag and as soon as I disabled DMZ I was able to re-gain remote access.

    I'm not sure about your specific issue, but what I can suggest is:

    1) Forget about the DMS unless you really need it (disable it)
    2) Assign a static IP to the xbox either manually or via static DHCP mapping
    3) Set up port forwarding to the xbox IP (game by game)
    4) If you have lag problems look into QoS. DMZ does not help with lag.
    5) If you do as per above the webinterface should not have any problem.

    Regarding point 3 I'm not sure if the xbox uses upnp by default, if so this step might me skipped. Regarding point 4, if you're unsure about what to set just create a rule that maches small packets e.g. <64k and give it high priority.
