Maybe im confused, but doesnt the DMZ to the router just forward all the data the modem gets and lets the router sort it out and route it to the computers that need it?
and tell me if theres anything else you need and it will magically appear haha
The modem automatically send all traffic to the router no matter what, end of story, no exceptions (unless you have something between the two
What you most likely want to do is put your server (unless you're hosting from your PC, which most people don't do, they use a dedicated box) in the DMZ. This means that when people connect to the server the router keeps them from actually entering your private (home) network, and this is more secure for you, however it is not necessary. All you have to do is kill the DMZ setup you have now, setup your server on a static IP address (use something over .150 to avoid DHCP conflict) and port-forward all of the ports needed for steam and Warcraft to that IP address. Once you've killed the DMZ your torrent client should return to normal operation as your router will be handling its traffic normally. (kill any port forwarding you might have setup for torrenting to this point.
