Port Forwarding (Opening Ports)

I feel like an idiot, but here goes:

The help center says that opening certain ports (8995, 12000-12999) may help the game run better. I want to try this but I'm not sure how. I've been able to get into my router and I've found the Port Forwarding page. But I"m not sure what IP address to use. I have a Linksys E2500 router.

I just need to know how to figure out which IP address to enter, or if I am doing this all wrong!

If you have a linksys router you probably have a gateway of which is what you would use to log into the router.

Open a command prompt, and type "ipconfig/all" without quotes
Locate the ethernet adapter local area connection.
the IPv4 address is the PC's address - this is the IP you will be forwarding the ports to
Your default gateway is the IP you would type into your browser address bar to log into the router.

hope that helps

Not too fast there mates... u need to assign your computer a static IP otherwise if you relog into your router in the future (after lease expires) the forward will break.

This is not needed , port forwarding is not what you want to be playing with, open ports -

Have you tried DMZ setting in your router yet, i just finished mine what a big difference.
