    I want to host Warcraft III Games, but it seems I need to connect to Static IP.

    When I click Save Settings for Static IP, it brings up a error box saying: [IP address and gateway is not at same subnetmask!]

    How do I fix this?

    And if you need to know any of the Info (the IP address and things) can you please tell me what is needed to be known to help?

    And im using WRT54GS v3.0 / BCM5352E Chipset

    Ok, I got it to connect. but when its connected I cant get on the internet.

    I can make it connect by Making Internet IP Address and The Gateway Similiar..

    You can't just configure any old static IP address, you need to be assigned one by your ISP. (And it almost always costs extra.)

    Try investigating dynamic DNS solutions like DynDNS or No-IP which will allow you to use your dynamic IP address with most things that require static addresses.
