Windows 7: Disabling router Firewall instead of port forwarding?

Disabling router Firewall instead of port forwarding?

I have a Linksys WRT160N v2 and i play a lot of games, and enjoy hosting games. however there are too many ports to forward. I was wondering that if i turned off my routers firewall would this eliminate me having to port forward? and if i could do that how would i. I know how to access my router so you can give instructions form that point of if you would like. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

I think you can set it to Plug and Play and it will automatically port forward.

you need to configure your router 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, no user name, password is usually admin for Linksys. Look around see if there's a help page
