    Portforwarding? I only use one line in QOS for playing ET behind my Tomato:

    UDP - Dst Port: 27960 - L7: quake-halflife
    Class: highest

    You generally don't need to forward ports if you're playing -- NAT will take care of that for you. You only need to forward (again, generally) if you're running a server, so client-initiated connections can get through. I'm guessing there are exceptions to this, but none are coming to mind. In your case, forwarding those ports may not do anything as those are the ports the other _servers_ are likely running on, not what port the client's are originating from.

    I don't play ET so I'm not sure if this applies to this game or not, but I'd be surprised if it didn't.

    You will not beable to port forward one the same ports for 2 seperate machines. Port forwarding is set up so when data arrives on the wan interface that has not first been asked for from the inside the router knows where to send it. It can do this for single machines but will not forward the same data too to different ones.

    That is the reason why i said i dunno for 2 machines.

    Ok another question. Does it make any speed diff if u use port forward or not?

    No speed difference. Like I said, NAT should do this for you. The only time you need to forward is if you have a connection initiated from the outside (such as running a server behind your router), so the router knows what to do with the data. Otherwise, NAT tables will map all of this for you, since you are initiating the connection.
