    There are no certain ports that all games use. Every game uses a different port.

    All you have to do is go to www.google.com and type in [name of game] ports and viola.... I guarantee it will be the first link.

    Check out these examples:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=diab...s=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...l&hs=FJ&q=world of warcraft ports&btnG=Search
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...hs=JJ&q=command and conquer ports&btnG=Search

    For instructions, you need to consult your manual. But I can tell you that the configuration page you need to visit can be accessed by opening your web browser and typing 192.168.1.1 in your address bar. The default user name and password is 'admin' and 'admin' or just blank user and admin for the password.
