    Hey does anyone know how to open router prots? I need to be able to play some games, but also try a few other things for my computer. I can't figure out how to open the right ports. Any suggestions?

    I suggest you post the make/model of your router. :)

    Hey Alucard, mine's a Dl-704 so the menu's likely almost the same. I think this will work.

    Firstly, on your web, browser, type in the address http://192.168.0.1/ (or click this link). You are now at you're router's built-in menu. The default password is "admin" if that doesn't work, I reccommend restarting your router by holding the reset button in while powering it up to revert back to the factory settings. At the bottom of the screen (once logged on) click the "advanced" link then the "Special AP" link. Under "trigger" and "incoming ports", type in the port number and check the "enable" box. Remember to save your settings. Tell me if this works, or if the menus are different....

    Well I see how to do it, but can you tell me how or where I can get the port number/s? I don't know how or where to get them.
