Question about Apple AirPort Extreme Wireless-N Wireless Base Station

Game server and my IP address

I created an online game server a few months ago and wanted to play on my server online with my friends. The problem was i had a router connected to my desktop. the only way my friends could find the server on the game server list if i disconnected the router and connected my computer into the internet cable modem. when i do that the game server is visible to everyone. I understood that routers have dynamic IP addresses and when you are connected the the internet from the router you get a privat or "dynamic" IP address, and your IP address is not visible to anyone outside my wireless network. when you are connected the the cable modem you get a public or "static" IP address. in the end it don't want to play on my server without having to unplug my wireless router. because other laptops and computers in my house need to use it. i want a way to make my router IP address "public", and play my game without having the disconnect the router and use the cable modem.
PS. i've been looking for an answere for at least 8 months now.


Please help me...

First option is to forward ports where your friends can connect to. The second option is to put your computer in DMZ. These options can be found on the router settings.

What does check firewall mean


Step 1:
Might have something to do with your antivirus and firewall settings.

Nothing is more frustrating than discovering you can't play "Neverwinter Nights 2" with your friends. If you experience complications while trying to connect to the online server, your router may be to blame. While largely responsible for communication between multiple computers and a modem, your router is also a built-in firewall that helps protect your network security. While normally a good thing, this can sometimes keep you from enjoying online games with your friends. Fortunately, you can bypass this firewall without compromising your connection.

manual to find the appropriate IP address. Enter "admin" as both the login ID and password when prompted. Find the "Port Forwarding" section on your admin panel. Enter the following values in the "Start" column: 5120, 6500, 6667, 27900, 28900. Enter these values in the "End" column: 5300, 6500, 27900, 28900. Set the "Protocol" as "UDP" or "Both" for every row of port forwarding. Check the "Enable" box for each set, and label the ports so you can easily recall the forwarding information. Save your settings, and then launch "Neverwinter Nights 2." Select "Connect to server," and you will be able to bypass your router's firewall to play online. IP Adress location

http://www.netopia.com/support/hardware/technotes/NQG_025.html
Server List (Port Forwarding) NQG_025 With NAT enabled, the IP addresses of nodes on your LAN are private since they are hidden from the Internet. IP Servers let you pass specific types of network traffic through the Netopia router's NAT interfaces. Once configured, selected types of network traffic, such as FTP requests or HTTP (Web) connections, will be forwarded to a specific host or server behind the Netopia router. Please Note: From the LAN (Local Area Network), you will also be able to access the servers that are responding to requests from the internet, but only using the internal private IP address. Access via the public IP address is not supported from a local ethernet connection. If your ISP is routing you multiple public IP addresses, you can also configure the router to forward all ports in one public IP to a designated private IP address on your LAN via Easy PAT List entries. For those instructions, see Quick Guide NQG_024: IP Mapping (Address Forwarding).
Please Note: If your router is currently running Netopia Residential Firmware with a web "GUI" configuration menu, this technote is not applicable to you. Most 3300 Series Netopia Gateways can be upgraded to Enterprise level firmware. Click Here! to purchase the upgrade key.
Related documents: NQG_039 NAT and the Basic Firewall
Firmware References:
  • v8.2 R1 (and up) - 3300 Enterprise Series
  • v5.3.7 (and up) - 4000 Series
  • v4.8.2 (and up) - R-Series

Before You Start
Telnet into the Netopia router's Main Menu at 192.168.1.1 (if using the default IP setting). If your network has a different IP addressing scheme, modify this accordingly. Click Here! for instructions on using telnet and Hyperterminal (serial connection).
Login with the user name and password. The Superuser login is required to save changes. If you are unsure of this, contact your network administrator.
Don't forget to press the Enter key to save any entries. Hitting the back space, delete or tab without first hitting enter will undo any changes.
The Esc key will take you back towards the main menu screen.
Once you have completed your configuration, you should reboot the Netopia to save and apply your changes.

Server List Configuration

  1. From the Main Menu of router console screens, go to Quick Menus, and select Network Address Translation.
  2. Select Show/Change Server List.
  3. Select Easy-Servers.
  4. From the Show/Change NAT Server List screen, select Add Server.
  5. Select Service and the service and port you want to allow. If your service and port are not available in the pull-down menu, select Other. Selecting Other will allow you to enter a specific service port or a range of ports since fields are provided for both a First Port Number and a Last Port Number. To allow a specific service port, the First Port Number and Last Port Number should be the same. Select Okay.
  6. Next, enter the Server Private IP Address, or the private IP address of the host/server you are forwarding the service to, and the Public IP Address you want to associate with the same host/server. This value can be left set to 0.0.0.0 if you are using the WAN IP as the Public IP address. Note: If your ISP is routing you multiple static IP addresses, other then the one used for Internet access, you may create more than one server for specific service as long as all servers have a different Public IP Address specified. For example, with two web servers on your LAN you would need to create two Server List entries for TCP 80 (www-http). Since each specific port (service) can only be mapped once using any given Public IP Address, a distinct public address must be used for each TCP 80 server list entry. It is not necessary for you to specify more than one Local WAN IP Address or Public IP Address in your router's configuration. As long as you are connecting to your ISP via a public IP address used for NAT, they are responsible for routing all other IP addresses via that connection.

Conclusion
You have now configured your router for TCP/UDP port forwarding. If you have a switched connection (ISDN or Analog), you will need to either disconnect and reconnect your Internet connection, or restart your router for the Nat Server List changes to take effect. If you wish to filter traffic for your static IP mappings, please see the following Netopia Technote:

Ok i have 20 firends in conflict lgobal storm they live in difrent countries and once they were all online so i craeted a mach and 1 by 1 asked them to come and for all my friend it sayd server not avaible...


There can be particular issues related
to playing through a router or firewall,
including sharing your internet
connection via another PC. In order to
join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
game from behind a firewall you must
open the following ports (inbound and
outbound):

UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
13139, 27900

TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
29900, 29901, 29920

To host a game from behind a router
with NAT (Network Address
Translation), or a firewall, you will
need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
the following ports to route data to the
IP address of your PC;

UDP ports 4658, 6500

TCP port 4658

If you continue to have problems
connecting to servers or creating
them, try bypassing your router or
firewall by connecting your PC directly
to your broadband connection.

If possible make sure you or your friends are not behind NAT or firewall. It is much easier to connect if you have all public IPs and not something starting with 192.168...

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers that are needed even when you are creating server to your own computer.

Sometimes in the lobby the server just dies quietly and you need to the restart the whole game. You will notice this when players just stop coming to your server. This usually happens because you switched to Windows even for one second and sometimes it just happens without any reason.

it is probably because he was killing teammates. "friendly-fire". he is probably joining on servers that have the "friendly-fire" turned on. try making him join on "TD" (team-deathmatch) servers that do not have the friendly fire option activated.
