I am using a BEFSR41v4 router, and after following numerous methods for port forwarding an Xbox Live connection my NAT still comes back as 'strict'.
For the sake of recieving a speedy response to this mind-numbing problem, I will lay everything out in detail:
I currently have ports 53, 80, 88, and 3074 forwarded (on both protocols) to my laptop's static IP address. All of this matches the standard procedure for opening up an NAT. I also have 'block anonymous requests' disabled, multicast enabled, and UPnP enabled. I just finished upgrading my firmware, and I set my MTU to 1452 (based on another person's suggestion).
None of this has worked. I have unplugged my router and modem many times to no avail. I even reset the router and then re-did all of that ^, again to no avail.
By the time i recieve a response to this, I will not have any hair left, that's a promise.
Please help if you can.

Thanks for responding so quickly!
No, I have a Charter modem (cheap piece of trash) connected to my BEF...router, which is then connected to three other computers and my xbox.

However, the IP address on my status page is vastly different from the one your link provided. The address your link provided is something I've never seen before and does not follow the standard 192.168.etc that i would expect, so I'm not sure what to make of that.

192.168.2.100 is on the status page.
Okay, so my modem is a router. I must have a bad understanding of what a router is. I see now from previous posts what the problem might be.
My modem is a Webstar DPC2100R2 series. Do I need to bridge it somehow? I've tried googling this but I honestly have no idea how to go about bridging it. Not even sure what bridging means, willing to do anything at this point though.

Could someone help me put my modem into bridge mode? This is the solution I wish to go with, but the Modem's configuration website (by entering 192.168.1.10 in the HTML bar) has absolutely no options. They're available, but trying to access them prompts an error that says I currently do not have access to those options. I'm sure this is probably a problem I can only solve by contacting my ISP, but if someone knows of an alternative way to bridge my Webstar, I'd love to hear it.
