I tried their web-site but I couldn't find a comprehensive guide how to forward ports for DSL 302G Router/Modem. I play Civilization 4 and some ports need to be forwarded in order for me to play it. Can anybody link me to a good easy to follow guide on how to do it. Or just post it up here.

These are the ports I need forwarded:
* 6667 (IRC)
* 2033 (Civ4)
* 2056 (Civ4)
* 47624 (Directplay)
* 3783 (Voice Chat Port)
* 27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
* 28900 (Master Server List Request)
* 29900 (GP Connection Manager)
* 29901 (GP Search Manager)
* 13139 (Custom UDP Pings)
* 6500 (Query Port)
* 6515 (Dplay UDP)
* 2300-2400 (DirectPlay - UDP)

I know how to get into the NAT Rule Entry thing... but what do I actualy type in there?

PS. Yes its the thingy.

Go here

the basic idea is you're making a path from the internet to your computer through the routers NAT ( network address Translation ) which translates internet addresses to your local network ones. You usually have to specify the ip address of your computer - probably or or something, the port you want, and the protocol ( TCP, UDP etc )

Some routers let you forward a port to your whole network in which case specifying  an address isn't necessary
