can i put in any port or do i set one at 27014 and the other at 27013 for example???

oh yeah, the router was an old netgear with wireless (though we were both wired) that probably need a firmware upgrade.
NAT stands for Network Address Translation and it's just the way the router knows which computer has made which internet request and can send the correct reply back to the right pc.

In the netgear upnp doesn't work properly so you will need to set up 2 new services for the firewall to use.

In trhe menu on the left hand side click on services.

Click the button to add a custom service.

On the next page give it a name you can easily recognise.

in the from and to boxes put in the port address that you use for your game. (you will need to set up a seperate service for each port).

Click ok.

click on firewall rules on the left hand side.

Click on add under inbound services.

In the dropdown box at the top find your custom service.

use alow always as the action.

in the server address boxes put in the static ip address of the pc using that game port.

You can ignore all the boxes underneath that.

Then just click apply.



You will need to repeat this precess for any ports your game uses and dom't forget what peeps said about using a different port for each computer.

You can set it for any port but it's best to try and keep them as close together as possible. Have a look online for what the default port is and then just go up one.
