    "connect automatically" means that you set your modemrouter to router mode (instead of bridge mode) and you now have a firewall/NAT between you and the internet.

    Read the documentation about how to host your game from behind a router (need to forward ports and suchlike). www.portforward.com may be a good place to check out.
