Linsksys, RVS4000, Firmware Version: V1.1.14, create virtual lan with its own IP address

I have 5 IP addresses.  I also have multiple xbox 360s.  In order to have the best game experience, I have to have uPNP enabled.  This is very insecure and I was wondering if I could give the xbox's their own virtual lan with their own public ip address?

Can this be done through static routing?  If this is possible, can I set uPNP to be open only for that specific IP address?

Basically, I want to set up a virtual router sandbox within my RVS4000 that can run uPNP to its heart's content and not leave a security vulnerability for the rest of my network (I work from home and want to keep security high on my work stuff).  I don't, however, want to run new cables to a second router... although that is an option if no software based solution is available.

VLAN per XBOX and Public IP, sure if that is what you want. Then you can forward appropriate ports for each IP to its own individual XBOX. UpNP is not, nor will not be necessary either.

Yes this can be done through static rouiting. and again uPnP is not necessary. If you are doing anything for a gaming cafe, then be sure to allow each VLAN to communicate with each other in the event players side by side want to play against each other. Otherwise, each connection will have to be routed through the internet instead of the internal lan, increasing lag/delay.
