So, I cannot get this working for any game. Today, I'm trying to get Starcraft working for multiplayer.
 
My router for AT&T DSL is a Pace 4111N. This router is not compatible with my Wii so I have it connected to a second router, which is a Belkin N750.
 
I'm only trying to connect two computers over LAN.
 
Computer 1:
Windows 7 x64 (Windows Update was ran this morning and all is up to date)
650GB HDD
8GB RAM
Video: NVidia GeForce GT 720
Ethernet (integrated) NVidia nForce 10/100
 
Computer 2:
Windows 7 x64
1TB HDD
8GB Ram
Video (Integrated)
Ethernet (integrated)
 
Windows Firewall on both computers has rule for "starcraft.exe" to allow both inbound and outbound traffic.
Windows Defender is OFF
Have attempted disabling Windows Firewall to no avail

p.s. Two weeks ago, I was trying to get port forwarding to work for Minecraft 1.8.7 and gave up just before I was pissed off enough to junk my computer.

You may have to look deeper into this.. If I remember right you needed netbios over tcp/ip which I do not think is even included in the tcp ip bindings anymore.

Since you have routers in series you have to forward in the dsl router to the static wan port of the belkin to then forward to the static ip address of the server.

Or make the port on the dsl router the belkin is connected to in the DMZ.

This assumes you have a public ip address on the dsl routers lan port.  You can check that by logging into the dsl router and reviewing the wan page.

 

NetBIOS over tcp/ip doesn't have a relationship with port forwarding.

I know it doesn't .. I know what port forwarding is/does.  OP stated:

 

I'm only trying to connect two computers over LAN

 

I presume for Lan game of Starcraft But (as I stated) getting some of the older LAN games to work over LAN required/requires Netbios over tcp/ip which I am sure is no longer included in the tcp/ip bindings any longer so that is why I said he may want to look into how do accomplish this a bit deeper.

Battlenet ports are as follows

Minecraft port is 25565

Depending on the version of StarCraft, old one uses IPX/SPX not tcp/ip, Starcraft2 is only online and can't be played on a lan

NetBIOS over tcp/ip is available in Windows 7 and Windows 8.  It's still here.

No worries. Lots of old and new games out there. I suspect The_Manager's issue is the double router configuration.
