    I went into my router before for simple things like adding WEP keys and all that. but when it comes to ports i'm kinda confused, i have a linksys router and i also have a game that uses these ports: TCP: 18210, 18215, 13505.
    UDP: (outgoing) 18215, 20000-22000; (incoming) 3658
    also notes "port 1042 needs to be opened instead of 1000"

    with forwarding and triggering etc. listed in the router i dont know what i actually need to do to "open" these ports, any help?

    google the model number for your router. there are plenty of tutorials out there for it.
