    Go to your Router's settings (assuming you know how to get there) and look at this picture ( Go to this location in your router.
    At the bottom:
    1) Enable Port Forwarding
    2) Make sure your computer always uses a certain IP number, and never changes. Do you know if your computer is set up for this?
    3) Port Range: The port you want to go to you
    4) Local IP: Your IP number that never changes.
    5) Local Port: I guess the same IP as #3
    6) Protocol: Both

    Hope this helps.
