    Hi~ I used to be able to host in a game server using my Prolink ADSL modem. I used port forwarding with port 6112 TCP and it worked. Now that i bought a linksys router, i couldn't host anymore. Please help me configure my linksys router in order to allow me to host again.

    These are the settings i used with ProLink modem before ,without linksys, when i was still able to host:

    This is what LinkSys wants me to fill up:

    This is my ipconfig /all:

    Please tell me which IP i should enter in the TCP/IP properties. I also don`t know what IP address to put in my ProLink modem Host IP Address too. Do i retain the 10.0.*** or do i put the new one that ProLink has?
    I can paste my ip and info here if anyone is willing to help. Thanks.

    never hosted a game, but when i forwarded ports on my Linksys i used the address of the IP, like you listed 192.168.1.136

    That should be the IP for the PC where the 192.168.1.1 is the IP of the router itself.
    Also since linksys has security i am not sure if there are other measures you need to take to allow outside access.

    some things that may help to read. go down to the "Getting certain applications and games to work."

    also the Linksys site may have something.
