Do the instructions for a similar router not work? The web interface should be the same.

That is okay. The 192 ip address is only an example. That website is using a router that has an IP of 192. Having a different IP doesn't matter.

Are you experiencing any problems with your game? What do you expect to happen when you forward the ports?

I expect to host games after i forward the ports. Ive tried allowing the ports through my Ca Anti Virus and it still doesnt work. Oh and on my router page which is 10.1.1.1 the options on the left hand side i dont have some on the website like they have, my router isnt on the page but i can find similiar ones.

Hi fourkings!

I read the manual of a similar product which is a DG834Gv3. I noticed that the port forwarding configuration of the router is under section Firewall Rules. Kindly check if you have that section.

If so, you need to add inbound rules for the ports 6112-6119. You must add a new service for the mentioned ports. For the LAN Server IP Address, you must enter the IP Address of the computer hosting the game. Then just select the option ANY for the WAN Users. Lastly, apply the settings.

Here is the link of the manual that I read for your reference. I hope that it is similar with your router interface.

EDIT: ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/DG834Gv3_RM_20JAN06.pdf

This didn't help me :(

I'm trying to start up my Minecraft server, but I need to port-forward to do that.

My router is Netgear DG834G v3 but I'm having trouble setting it up, all I need to do is Port forward.

:)
