    Well, you could log into the router and disable the firewall. During your router setup, did you setup username/password> Basically, you can log into the IP of the router and change it. For example, Linksys routers have a default IP of 192.168.1.1. Yours may have similar setup. You may also want to check to seeif all you need to do is open a certain port to play WOW, therefore you wouldn't have to disable the firewall
