Hi Kingpin,
You need to access your router admin function by typing the IP address of your router in your Inernet Explorer Address line.
Then enter your username and password at the router authentication screen. The go to the tab for "Applications and Gaming". There you can configure your Specific Application's ports, protocol and IP.

Can my PC use a Global IP address when connected via router?

you can do that nicholas...all that you need to do is to disable the DHCP in the belkin router...this makes your router into a that your computer will get a global address...but the problem is that you cannot access online simultaneously from two computers(which you are doing now) connected to the router...also you wont be able to access local computers, as one of the computer will get global address from ISP and the other computers connected to the router will get ip address in the range of 169.254.X.X...if you disconnect from the internet, the next computer in the network would be able to go online....

Can you tell me what an ip addresse is im trying to connect to xbox live and it keeps asking for ip addresse

Every device connected to the public internet is assigned a unique number known as an internet protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods(also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 

since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers with region based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the internet. an IP adress can sometimes be used to show the users general location because the numbers may be tedious to deal with, an IP adress may also be assigned to a host name, which is sometimes easier to remember hostnames may be looked up to find IP adresses,and vice-versa. at one time ISPs issued one IP adress to each user. These are called static IP addresses. beacuse there is a limited number of IP adresses and with increased usage of the internet ISPs now issue IP adresses in a dynamic fashion out of a pool of IP addresses (using DHCP). these are referred to as dynamic IP addresses. This also limits the ability of the user to host websites mail servers, ftp servers, etc. in addition to users connecting to the internet with virtual hosting,a single machine can act like multiple machines (with multiple domain names and IP addresses).

How to configure dmz on linksys wireless n router?

  1. Log into your router. (If you need help how to do it let me know!)
  2. Go to th "Application & Gaming" tab.
  3. click on "DMZ"
  4. choose "Enable"
  5. Enter the IP address of the computer you want to put in the DMZ.
  6. Click "Save Settings"
Some notes:
  • Putting a computer in a DMZ is pretty risky, because all ports to this computer are opened. Make sure that all recent patches are applied and your virus software is up to date! A more secure solution is to use portforwarding. (See this site how to do that for a specific software for your router.)
  • Your computer should be set to a static IP. For two reasons:
  • A) DMZ will not work if your DHCP server (your router) assigns at one point a different IP address to your computer,
  • B) If a different computer gets the Ip address assigned that you specified in your DMZ settings, then that machine is exposed.
If you don't know how to assign a static IP address, let me know and I walk you through the steps.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

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.

Belkin 54 g wireless router....cant find on the net. need to port forward to host games HELP!

Make sure your private IP address is statically set.  Your public IP address is obtained from your ISP and is what other users will be connecting to.  You can not manipulate your public IP address so if your ISP is running DHCP, it is very possible that your public address is changing.  Also if you are frequently disconnecting your modem, it is possible your ISP is leasing you a new public IP address each time.  So try to keep things as static as possible.  As far as the battle net stuff.

Diablo, Warcraft II Edition, and StarCraft: 
Allow port 6112-6119 TCP and UDP out and in
Diablo II: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 4000 TCP out (realm games) 
Allow port 4000 TCP out and in (hosting open games only) 
Warcraft III: 
Allow port 6112 TCP out and allow established sessions in 
Allow port 6112 TCP in (hosting custom games) 
Allow port 6113-6119 TCP out and in (hosting custom games if you've changed the default port in the Options/Gameplay screen) 
If you are still having problems after you open up the required ports, try opening 116(TCP) and 118(TCP). I don't really know if these ports are required or not. 
I have had people tell me that opening up those two ports have helped them connect to

Hope that helps.  For manipulating ports in your router I suggest consulting your user manual, or online FAQ.  Save your router config before applying any changes, and always remember, opening up ports subjects you to different types of security threats so be aware that is a risk you are taking.

My modem and my ip

You need to configure the modem for it to allow game hosting. Enable NAT/GAMING setting of your modem. You can do so by pulling its interface and configure the settings from there. The interface of the modem can be pulled up by typing the default gateway of the modem in the address bar of a browser.

Hope that helps. Enjoy your game sessions!

Cant find my routers Gateway Site..?

First you must make sure that the Ip address is your routers ip address.

Click on Start, Run, type cmd, then click OK. Type ipconfig /all and hit the enter key. You are looking for the Default Gateway address. Use that address in your web browser. When you set up your static Ip address on your computer, use the first three numbers of your default gateway's address, then for the fourth number, add one. For example. If your default gateway address is, then your static ip address should be

Try this and let me know what happens.

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.
