If playing DOTA is the reason why you want to forward a port from your dlink router, I don't think that it is going to be necessary.
To be able to HOST a game in dota, you need to either be in a network or in a virtual private network.
LOCAL HOSTING - this means that you are hosting a game to PCs connected to your LAN under the same router. All you need to do is go to Local Area Connection in Warcraft TFT then create the game you want to host. If your friends is not able to see your game, make sure that your windows firewall has Warcraft TFT in its exceptions. Or you can turn off windows firewall as a workaround each time you play DOTA.
VPN HOSTING - this means you must have a specific software to use to host your DOTA game so friends can connect to you even if they are not under the same LAN or router. Best example of a software to use is GARENA. Garena is a vpn software that allows you to connect to players around the globe. You need to register a username and password to use garena. Download and install Garena to your computer. Login using your username and password to use garena. Once logged in, choose the room you want to host your game for. Choose the one under your current location (e.g. Choose Singapore if you are in Singapore). When you connect to the room, click Start Game to start your warcraft. You can HOST dota games by going to Local Area network in Warcraft TFT and create your game with a valid dota map. Same in LAN, you need to put Garena on the exception list of your firewall for people to see your hosted game.
lets resolve your concern what i understand is that you are able to go online with all your computers and able to share the data as well, I suggest you to open the port number : 6112 which i find for you as mentioned on the websites on your router and then you will able to join the game on all the 6 computers, and make sure you open the port in TCP/IP mode.

Keygens left on a pc can cause a real issue, i personally keep all keygens on a cd when not in use.
Not sure what router you have, but i would reset the router back to factory settings, you can do this by way of a small hole notmally and inserting a pin. Turning it off & back onagain will not reset it. If you do have a router, then the need for the windows firewall is not needed as much. I hope this helps you in some way...
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 Battle.net 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 battle.net.
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.
You need to log on to your router. Go to Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1. then a login window appears. Leave username blank and admin for password. There you will find the port-forwarding, DMZ stuff that gamers use. Here is the link for Linksys info for your router http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT160N
If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.
What game are you trying to host? did you already open the port on your router for others to come in and play? Ask for the port number and try to open it on your router's set up page. call your router manuv\facturer once you already have the port number/ numbers.
