    I am trying to setup and host a game server, Battlefield Vietnam at the present time but actually any game server I try to host doesnt show up in the list of severs. I tried port forwarding and DMZ to no avail. My setup is as follows:

    Westell Wirespeed DSL Modem B90-22030-04
    WRT54G which is then connected thru ethernet cable to hosting computer. I also have 3 other computers connected wireless.
    When I initially setup my WRT54G I had to call tech support becuase the address they had in the setup doc didnt work when I tried to access it in Internet Explorer. The tech support guy then had me enter which allowed access to the internet and so to me everything was good until I tried hosting a game.

    I tried setting up portforwarding as outlined on portforward.com and that still didnt work. Is there something I need to allow access to on the Westell Modem that is preventing the portforwarding from working? I even enabled DMZ and still my server does not show up on the hosting site!! Is my problem related to my initial setup of
    The Ips assigned my computers are
    .102 and so on

    Please any help would be appreciated and I will answer any questions about my setup you might need in order to help me

    Oh some more info I should have included in my first post.
    I am running Window XP Home with SP2 but at the time of trying to host I had the firewall disabled.
    Also on the WRT54G
    I had firewall disabled.

    I tried my IP as far as what the DSL Modem was connected to my ISP as, but the game didnt recognize the address. It only recognized the 10.10.10.x address.

    Connect from that ip address and go to Portforward.com and look for the external ip address and thats what other people connect from. You connect from the one in the server box.
