Ok so your ports are blocked and you can't open them... Which type of router are you using? Has this always happened?

I've never touched that kind of router, how are you able to change the port settings with it? Do they save?

That's strange. Now, this may not be the case, but here goes... Sometimes the IPS (Verizon, etc.) blocks some of these ports on their server for you. I suggest calling them and finding out if it's blocked.

i don't think that would be it, i have a friend that lives next door, with the same modem, and service provider. He can host fine, the only difference is he doesn't have a router and i do.

For 'Inbound Services' the port 6112 is used for Warcraft 3. If you are able to, you must try and have access granted to that port of your router.

I believe that for 'Outbound Services' port 6112 also must be opened.

The methods for opening ports manually on routers vary for each Brand, and different on some models also, therefore i cannot advise on how to do this, nor am i responsible for any mistakes made / problems caused. This is my own advice, and i warn you should only open ports if you understand what you are doing.

My friend wants to host Warcraft 3 and ive been trying to help him for the past 3 days and we just cant figure out how to do this. We would really appreciate if you could give us like a step by step analysis if at all possible. His router is 108 Mbps Wireless Firewall Router WGT624 v3.
