We have an SMC high speed router and use time warner cable as our ISP. The DHCP provides a different IP address for each computer or device which there are 4 or 5. Anyway, my brother and myself are trying to go into the same room but when we do one of us goes 999 ping to everyone and vice versa. It will work for a bit and then go back to 999. I tried port forwarding, which I'm not exactly sure how to do. I went into the SMC router, went to firewall, then to virtual server and created a port forwarding, first I initially did it with the general ip address on the back of the router and used port 7900-8000 when that didn't work I tried using the DHCP IP address for the pc I'm using. I also tried 8000-8100 port settings. When I do this I also changed the port numbers in the gunz game through options.
Here's what it looks like when I try to port forward:
Virtual Server Settings
IP Address 192.XXX.X.X
Private Port 7900
Public Port 8000
Protocol TCP & UDP
(The maximum rule count is 32.)
I appreciate anyone's insight and help. Thank you.
