      cant forward ports: heavy lag while gaming

      Hi just recently switched to sky broadband and ive been having some problems with the wireless router (although mine is connected to pc and therefore not wireless)

      Im using what i beleive is the netgear dg934g wireless router now I the first thing I did was to create a static ip this wasnt a problem especially using the guides at PortForward.com - Port Forwarding Guides Listed by Manufacturer and Model

      I then wanted to forward some ports I used the guide at the aforementioned url but I could not get it to forward the ports I was wanting ports 4662,4672 forwarded but I have not been able to do this .when I fill in the required info into the router settings I get this error "invalid WAN start ip address please enter again"

      what can I do im is my software firewall the problem im using bitdefender 2010 but i had no problems of this kind with my previous isp/router

      I even tried forwarding these ports using pfconfig but my router wasnt on the list


      any help is appreciated thx in advance

      Re: cant forward ports: heavy lag while gaming

      You would forward the IP of the PC with the static IP

      ie:

      forward to 192.168.0.3

      I know its been a while since i added anything to this but I sorted out the problem.

      Basically the guide for my router is missguided some of the data it states to input is incorrect . in actual fact you need only to enter your ip and the forwarded port Any other data which it shows you should enter will trigger an error; just thought id add this in case anyone else trips up over it like i did
