Okay so I have a 1070b 2wire modem and a Dlink Di-524 router. I've been trying to set it up so I can host a Warcraft3 game, but whenever I open my ports (6112-6119)/set up a static ip it still doesn't work. I'm not sure if my modem acts as a router as well so that could possibly be the problem, but does anyone know how to set up 2 routers to the same network?

You might need to be a bit more specific about what your problem is. What is actually happening? You can't host the game?

I can't help you but with more info someone might be able to.

are you plugging the 2wire into the WAN port on the Di-524?  If so, try plugging it into a LAN port instead and configure your port forwarding directly on the 2wire.

another alternative is to run the 2wire in bridge mode and do all the port forwarding onthe di524 (try this link: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r19783899-Dlink-Di524-router-with-a-2wire-2701HGB-router-Bridge-mode )
