This is quite stupid of either my router or me... really...
I know how to forward many ports onto one PC... just make a wide range. That's not the problem.

But what if I have 20 PCs to forward ports onto? (it's needed for a certain online game to work properly)

See, the problem is that my router only allows up to 10:

How do I forward at least 10 ports each to the other PCs?

Ignore the entry.
That was just for demonstration purposes.
I haven't really forwarded anything yet.

looks like you need a router that supports 20 or more entries. I think. I'm a bit new to port forwarding. I'm not sure what routers support more than 10

Add a second router just like the one you have. The first one is setup as a gateway so set the second one as a router. This should allow you to effectively run two router in one LAN.

Damn... so I need a new router no matter what, huh?
I was hoping there was some software method of forwarding ports,
or some 3rd-party user-made firmware that supports more,
or something else I didn't find on Google that would save myself from extra expenses.

Oh well.
