OK I was looking to port forward to speed up my Internet and downloads. So it's not possible?

How do I port forward without a router?
Hi all,

Is it possible to port forward without a router and how do I do it? I tried typing in 192.168.1.1 and I get nothing. Even if I did go into the Interface I still don't know how to setup port forwarding and I don't have a router.
