Go to portforward.com and see if you can set the correct ports open.

Virtual Server / Port Forwarding does not work from within the Local Network


When you use port forwarding in Virtual Servers and try to test it from within the local network, it may fail. When for example, port 80 is forwarded to a web server in the local network, you may get the router's home page instead of the web server's one or you may get nothing at all. When you try to use the server from outside the local network it will work fine though.

This can happen when you try to access the router's WAN IP address from within the local network. In order for port forwarding to work from within the local network, the router needs to support a feature called NAT loopback. This is not a part of the specification of Belkin routers and modem-routers, so most of them will not have the feature, and if a router does have it, it is not supported.

In order to use the server from within the LAN, you can address it by its internal LAN IP address (e.g. 192.168.2.101).

If the WAN IP address has a DNS host name associated with it, such as www.example.com, and you need to use that name to connect to the server, you can do so by associating the name to the local IP address in the hosts file (a file called hosts with no extension). This file lists IP addresses and host names and is used before actual DNS lookups are done. You can add lines to the hosts file using a text editor like Notepad on Windows. The lines look like:

192.168.2.101 www.example.com www.otherdomain.com # comment

The lines contain an IP address and one or more host names separated by white space. Anything that follows a hash sign is a comment and will be ignored. You will need to change the hosts file on all machines in the LAN that need access to the server.

On Windows, the hosts file can be found in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, in C:\WinNT\System32\Drivers\Etc on Windows 2000, and in C:\Windows on Windows 98 and ME. You need to have administrator rights to edit the file; on Windows Vista and Windows 7 you need to run Notepad as administrator.

It says :"you have been disconnected from online servers"


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.

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers which are needed for connecting to any internet server.

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 on...it'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. 
Cheers!

Friend cannot conect to me while im the host server.


 Each computer on the router is assigned an ip if DHCP is enabled in the router. This is known as your inhouse IP and you will need these to forward ports.

On each computer connected to the router open cmd (command prompt) and type
ipconfig /all
Make note of the ip assigned for each machine.

Open your router setup and enable DHCP if is isn't already. Save changes.
Locate Port Forwarding or Advanced Routing.
Create a rule for each machine. You can name them anything you like, such as machine1, machine2...
Select TCP for the protocol. You can select a port range in the ports boxes. In the IP box you will type the ip for each machine and select enable. Save Changes.
Reboot everything, machines, router and modem. 

Also note some routers have a gaming tab which will make this easier to setup.

Good luck
