You need to set the correct address for DMZ (your PC IP address). You may also find that your PC firewall settings will need changing.

You shouldn't need to set DMZ for this, you can set port-forwarding instead, and then select the ports you wish to pass through for each IP address connected to your home side of the router.

NAT type is set to strict, I would like it set to open. Modem is a NETGEAR DM111P

What you have to do is go to your router settings!! You need to find DMZ settings !! DMZ Server allows you to set up a computer or server that is available to anyone on the Internet for services that you haven't defined. There are security issues with doing this, so only do this if you're willing to risk open access. If you do not assign a Default DMZ Server, the Router discards any incoming service requests which are undefined. This can be a security problem. You shouldn't check this box unless you have a specific reason to do so. Thats enough **** of that !! Then you need your xbox IP address and add that to the DMZ setting this will set your NAT to open!! Just be careful if not using a static IP address with your xbox that if router is turned off the xbox will asign a new one and you will have to re-enter the DMZ. Hope this helps

Im playing call of duty and cannot get onto any online games. I have an internet connection and im at the rank of lance cpl 2nd class but I cant play on any games?

Make sure that you NAT TYPE isn't moderate or strict if so factory reset the modem/router and if that doesn't do it, go into your modem/router via PC and set your PS3 as a DMZ host. NOT: Setting you PS3 system as a DMZ host puts your console outside the firewall.

Try putting your computer ip in DMZ, although this may bring some security risks.

The wii

If you have the Wii set up as the DMZ host then yes all of the traffic the wii generates will be allowed. This will allow you to play games online.

Would like to host a game thru my motorola modem/router

You need to look for something on your router called Static NAT and configure it to point to your internal IP address.  You also need to find out what ports your NASCAR game advertises itself's usually high ports (20000-30000).  ONce you find out the port(s), you can create a custom service on your router for those ports, and when you configure Static NAT, it should ask what 'service' you want to advertise.  This basically tells the router to forward all inbound traffic, looking for those particular ports, directly to your IP address, which will allow users on the Internet to see your game server.

Port forwarding problems, playing Total Annihilation (TA)

I think you may have to find out the port used by the game and set that port to be allowed access against your specific pc IP address in the virtual servers menu in your routers settings.
