Identifying Your Router's IP Address
You should have now received an IP address from your router. To view your IP address information do these two steps:
http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.0.50 or http://10.0.0.1
Once you see a login prompt, you need to log in with the default router login. Usually they are a combination of "admin" and no password or "admin" for the password and no username " or "admin" for username and "password" for the password. Alernatively, you can search Google with your model number and it should yield you some useful information on your router including the default login/password.
Then when you are inside it, you should go to the LAN section and enable DHCP (if it already isn't). For security you may limit the amount of addresses to the number of computers (you don't have 254 computers, so why allow 254 computers addresses?). For example, I allow 3 IP addresses on my network to be issued, since I have a NAS, Laptop and a Desktop.
How to Configure & Setup Port Forwarding
THIS WILL HELP YOU SOLVE SOME APPLICATION CONNECTIVITY PROBLEMS
What is Port Forwarding and Why do You Need It?
Port Forwarding is the process that is needed to forward different types of Internet connections into your Network. Understand that the Router is protecting your networking by segmenting it; so it's doing its job. Port Forwarding is one way to allow traffic into your network (manually), but now most routers and devices allow UPnP (Universal Plug & Play). Despite some possible security risks, it has been very popular and useful in Peer-to-Peer applications like uTorrent and Frostwire. Port forwarding is necessary because your router is designed to automatically reject any inbound connections that you didn't initiate.
So you want to play a game you need to open ports. First, you will be able to connect to them and conversely they need to connect to you. If you have the router toggled on a "game" mode or similar, it will create a lag in the beginning as it attempts to learn what you are doing. This isn't ideal.
Generally, the popular first-person-shooter game, CounterStrike, you would use the ports 27001 - 27055 if you are a Client to the server. If you want to become a CS server, then open the following ports and direct them to your IP address:
