    For some reason I have NEVER been able to get this to work. I tried using the instructions on portforward.com but it doesn't seem to do anything. I used to play some pc games (WoW, Everquest, EVE, Modern Warfare 2, ect) and they were somewhat lagging. I found out it's an issue with portforwarding but I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, or if it's not helping or what. I know the lag isn't from my internet connection or PC, both are top notch.

    Couple of possibilities, is there a firmware upgrade for your router? What firewall do you have on your pc?

    You're using dd-wrt right?

    The biggest thing is to make sure that a: your pc you want to have the ports forwarded to doesn't change it's IP address. You could try using UPNP.

    If you're using dd-wrt check this: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Port_Forwarding

    You should enable UPnP. Port forwarding is only useful if it's coming in on a defined port (which AFAIK Battle.net traffic uses a range of ports) and if you PC's IP is (relatively) static.
