Look in the router hand book to find out how to access the "webpage" that has all the settings and go to it. Explore it a bit and you'll find port forwarding etc.. Routers vary a great deal in their setup so there isn't much help we can be without knowing the make and model, and there are many.

Go to the D-Link website, I'm sure they must have some info. Many routers use the address

http://192.168.1.1

just click on the link and see if it takes you to your router.

I went to the D-Link website and turns out the address is actually 192.168.0.1
Anyway, now that I'm in the configuration, I can't figure out what I need to do to open a port...
I'm pretty sure it's going to be under the advanced category. The subcategories I have from that are:
Virtual Server
Applications
Filters
Firewall
DMZ
Performance
I've tried playing around with Firewall (tried adding an entry for Allow All IPs UDP port 27015) and DMZ (tried both using 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.101) but the daemon still shows my IP as 192.168.0.101 which I know is not my actual IP ...

This is so I can run a small server if that makes it any different. I've already the appropriate firewall ports open.

I know this is a router issue because plugging my computer directly into the modem fixes it...
