need help with router

I have a Lynksis cable/dsl router with built in firewall that is hooked up to Charter. The problem is that I can't host Roger Wilco when I am playing games because of the IP. Is there any way around this?

Yes, you need to find out the exact port that roger wilco needs to host a game and setup your router to forward that port to your internal IP address. w/ no username and admin for the password is the default login on the linksys, goto the advanced tab and tell it you want to forward all traffic in on this port to your internal ip. You can setup your computer on the DMZ port but it would be less secure if you are worried about that.
