WRT54G Linksys Router

Postby X-OvrDistortion » Wed May 23, 2007 10:01 pm

So, this is my router. I have to use port forwarding for a game that I play. Now, I play this game on 2 different PC's. So I have to port forward for both. Now this is where I am stumped. I can only port forward to one IP address. I have tried to forward the same port, but witha different IP address and it doesn't work. Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be great. Thanks fellas!!

Is there an option in the game to use a different port? That would be your best option I would think.

What game is it? I don't really play any games, but that might help.

It was just for my updates for WoW. I just updated one, then the other. But, if it could be set up so I don't have to mess with the router, it would be the win.

Once you get the patch on one machine, just copy it to the other computer.

You won't be able to port forward to both at the same time.

The patch download mechanism is bit torrent.

quit sucking at the internetz.
Here in death's dominion
Where even shadows die
I am the one almighty
You will cry my name
And when you seek forgiveness
You will see there is no god
And for all eternity
You will cry my name

That is what I figured, but I was wondering if there was a way. Thanks for the info guys.
