Ok long story short i need to host games on warcraft 3 but obviously cant because of my damn router settings, ports not enabled etc.

I cannot enable these ports unless i have a static IP address.

BUT i tried the online tutorial and.. You know when you do a tutorial and on one of the steps its completely different for your computer than what it instructs.. Yeah that happened.

I need to figure out how to make a static IP address with a netgear dg834gv3

Don't even try google, ive raided it for hours.. Only really applies to people who know what they are talking about.

There is a piece of software called pfconfig that could configure the ports for it.. But there is no way im paying 30$ to host a 10$ game if you get what i mean.

Bump,

I have found out how to make my static IP address.

But the port opening tutorial for that particular game diddnt work.. So i edited the router settings to enable all ports.. Is this extremely dangerous or should i be ok? I dont have a firewall running.

I believe that opening them all will make it no different from my usb modem that had no problems with any ports whatsoever..

So will it just be like a router, without the somewhat added safety?
