    So I have a linksys wireless router firmware Version: v3.03.6.
    I have the ports I require forwarded and I have set up a static IP address. For some reason I cannot ping the ports or host games on battle net. I don't have any anti virus or any other firewall running so I am unsure as to why I cannot host or ping the ports I have forwarded. Are there any other settings on my router page that I may be missing?

    Thanks

    "I cannot ping the ports "
    You don't ping ports. You ping IP addresses.

    "I have set up a static IP address"
    Do you have static IP addresses on both the computer's LAN IP and the WAN IP?
