Does anybody know of a way I could disable a firewall that might be in the router? Or does anybody know of a way that could help me and get my server 'up'? Thanks ahead,

I can’t get my Internet game, server, or application to work. If you are having difficulties getting any Internet game, server, or application to function properly, consider exposing one PC to the Internet using DeMilitarized Zone (DMZ) hosting. This option is available when an application requires too many ports or when you are not sure which port services to use. Make sure that you disable all the forwarding entries if you want to successfully use DMZ hosting, since forwarding has priority over DMZ hosting. (In other words, data that enters the Router will be checked first by the forwarding settings. If the port number that the data enters from does not have port forwarding, then the Router will send the data to the PC or network device you set for DMZ hosting.) Follow these steps to set DMZ hosting: A. Access the Router’s web-based utility by going to http://192.168.1.1 or the IP address of the Router. Go to the Advanced => Forwarding tab. B. Disable or remove the entries you have entered for forwarding. Keep this information in case you want to use it at a later time. C. Click the DMZ Host tab. D. Enter the Ethernet adapter’s IP address of the computer you want exposed to the Internet. This will bypass the NAT firewall for that computer. Please refer to “Appendix F: Finding the MAC Address and IP Address for Your Ethernet Adapter” for details on getting an IP address. Once completed with the configuration, click the Apply button and then the Continue button.
