Stupid Xfi and reserved ip addresses

I had some cameras setup with reserved ip addresses and of course the port forwarding to access externally.


After the hurricane last year when power was out for a few days when it all came back all of the cameras had changed ip addresses.  When I go to the port forwarding it wont let me update the ip addresses only the port which unless I am lucky to have had one camera pick up another ip, which would not happen since they are reserved!, it is of no help.


Then I try to delete the port forwarding to start a new one and it wont let me delete it, gives me error message that they are having trouble, so I am not sure if the reserved ip address is the issue and wont let me delete or what, but since going with the xFi it is just not very user friendly, assuing the web broswer admin was so much easier and provide better access to settings.  I have a TG1682G modem/rouer
