    Hi, I have a Netgear FR314 Firewall Router and I was wondering if anybody knew how port forwarding works with it...

    Specifically I'm trying to host a game and I've been to various places over the years, yes I've been trying to fix this for years, and they all say you have to forward port 30000 or something but they don't know how to do it. Can somebody help solve this lifelong problem :)

    I bet your Router manual probably shows you how to do it as well.
