    No the best you can do is assign 1 port to 1 PC and put a second PC into the DMZ. The only other way you could do this is get a router that supports multiple WAN IP's and get multiple IP's from your ISP.

    Hi, all. My brother and I share our Internet connection through our DSL router. We are trying to forward port 6112 TCP for the game Starcraft so that we can play online together and host games, though we cannot get it to work. What happens is that we use the same external IP and Bnet gets confused and stops responding. How can I remedy this problem? Is there a way to use two DIFFERENT external IPs, one for each computer? Please help!

    All routers support 1 WAN IP. I said Multiple WAN IPs. Like I said you have to have the ISP give you the multiple WAN IP's and the router has to support it and your router doesn't look like it supports multiple WAN IP's

    Really shouldn't this be merged with the other thread? Its the same question really isn't it? You need 2 different WAN IP's to play internet games. If the other thread is on the same gaming issues. Note that 2 machines from the same IP aren't even allowed on most gaming services.
