Hosting games on Starcraft help?

  1. So whenever i host games on starcraft, people can't join because "the latency against the game creator is too high" or something. Anyway, i heard that you have to open some ports in order to properly host games.

    How exactly do i do that? I went on IE and went to 192.168.1.1 and it didnt work, went to 192.168.2.1 and it brought me to the belkin setup utility. Im pretty sure its 6112-6119 but belkin has a starcraft router profile built in and it set it at 6112-6112 and UDP. I tried messing around with the numbers and stuff but it still wont work...

    Anyone know what i do?

    Make sure it's open for the proper IP and make sure both UDP and TCP are selected.

    By the way, I play StarCraft pretty regularly these days, I'd be glad to play with you if you're interested. PM Me your StarCraft name/Gateway. Fair warning though, I suck pretty bad :'(.

    O.o, it stopped working...............

    Do i have to use a static ip?

    I have Upnp or something enabled. Also whenever ichange anything, it always reverts back to selecting starcraft at 6112-6119 TCP, and 6112-6119 UDP. I can never seem to change it. If i press apply, it loads for a moment the goes back to the homepage, then when i check, its the same.

    No, however, when your IP changes you'll have to reconfigure your router's settings. Pop into the web-based configuration screen again and use your current IP address (which you can find by opening the command prompt and entering the command "ipconfig").
