After several days of Googling without success, I'm back here to pick the keen minds of those more knowledgable than I. And, as always, thanks for any help offered; I appreciate it. Long story short, I have a D-Link DIR-615, Hardware Version: B2 and Firmware Version: 2.25SH (and I can't upgrade the firmware or my contract is void), and I want to manually forward a port for World of Warcraft on two (2) different wireless laptops. Everything went smoothly--static IP's have been created, ports have been chosen, everything--until I tried to add the second device under "Port Forwarding" in the router. The first computer was added perfectly, but when I fill in the details--Computer Name and Application Name--for the second computer and try to save the settings, I receive the error message "Name 'World of Warcraft' is already used." That is, it seems that I'm limited to port forwarding to only ONE wireless device for ONE application. I realize that the DIR-615 can be enabled for UPnP, but I don't want to do this. All I want is for two (2) wireless devices to each have a single port manually forwarded for World of Warcraft, but I've experienced the above problem. Thanks again for any help.
