I have a 3347 motorola modem and I have two

If you have a Private IP address from the Modem like,, etc.... the the NAT will be an issue, for games like Dawn of Death 2 which need more Bandwidth when joining the Game Server the WAN IP address which is from your Modem need to Public like,, etc... if you have a WAN IP address then check the Firmware of your router and if possible get the specific port number from the Game Administrator and open it on your router so that you wont have NAT issues.
