Help with adding ports on Windows 7

Hello everybody,
I play a game called Warcraft III. I like hosting games but to do that you need to forward ports. I just upgraded to Windows 7. I used to have Windows XP and I did everything to host a game. Now I have Windows 7 and I don't really know where anything is. First of all, where can you add ports? Secondly, when you do add them you're supposed to add External Port: 6112-6119 and redirect Port:6112-6119. I think. Lol. Umm...you need to add a port called 6112 which is the port for hosting. And another 6119. You do it for DCP and for UDP. If anybody knows anything about hosting on Warcraft III can you tell me exactly what to do?

Portforwarding is done in your router/modem. the OS has little to do with it.

Agreed - do you have a router or are you connected directly to your modem?
