I have done everything i can think of to beable to host custom games in warcraft III The Frozen Throne. I have Port forwarded, firewall disabled, etc. I know i have to forward ports 6112-6119, but the ip address part is sketchy. Im no sure which ip to use. I tried forwarded my modem and router using multiple ip addresses from my computer, and none worked. Any help would be appreciated. I have also tried unpluging my router and connecting my modem directly to my computer, but that didnt work either. My guess is that it is my modem.
Also enable these ports in windows firewall, also enable dmz your computer IP
I have no problems serving
Disable when not hosting.

But i dont think my router is the problem. My Modem is, because even if i connect my internet directly, i still cant host. Does any1 know about actiontec modems at all? specifically my model # if u can.
Ditch the windows firewall. Just turn it off and get another one. I use Zonealarm free version and it works just fine.
You need to forward the ports to the ip address of the computer hosting the game. http://www.actiontecstore.com/qwest/QwstUserManual701R.pdf
Link for the manual for the modem. There is a port forwarding, firewall, and services blocking section that you should read.
I was having the same problem. I even tried DMZ, but that did not work. I have Cox Cable, and I believe that they block the ports 6112-6119 on my modem (Toshiba PCX2600). So no matter how I configured my router, firewall, etc. it would not work on ports 6112-6119 because they are blocked on the Modem (or by the ISP).
To get mine to work, I went into the OPTIONS screen in Warcraft 3, and I changed the port from 6112 to 4662. Then set up port forwarding on my router to go to the STATIC IP for my computer on port 4662 instead of 6112.
Also make sure you have Windows Firewall configured/disabled for WC3.
