    I know you have heard this before, but my situations a little different.

    My ISP is Comcast
    My Router is Dynex E-401

    So my problem is that I am unable to host WC3 Games. But I used to be able to.

    Until recently ( bout 8 months to a year ) I had a static IP address set up with Comcast, and I did the port forwarding and all was dandy, I was able to host games.

    Then comcast took away my Static IP Address and gave me a dynamic one. I called them up and asked for the DNS Servers so I could set up another Static IP Address, but they said they don't offer that, and they never have... which is odd cause they gave me the DNS servers a couple years ago

    Well, like I said I can't host games anymore unless I bypass my router and go directly to my cable modem. Which my dad doesn't like.

    So is there anyway to host games with Comcast, and no Static IP Address? ( because www.portforward.com says you need a Static IP Address to forward ports)

    Is there some 3rd party program that will allow me to forward my ports? I have read about those somewhere but I can't find them anymore.
