Windows 7: Online port checker sites saying ports aren't open

Online port checker sites saying ports aren't open

I googled how to open ports and it told me go in to windows firewall>advanced setting>new rule etc. I want to install a game so I need certain ports to be open and unrestricted. When I used online port checker sites they all say the required ports aren't open. What's the deal here?

Hi how are you connected to the internet, is it directly or do you have a router?
If you have a router you will have to do a port forwarding on it, to your ip address.
If you are connected directly you will have to call your ISP, and have them open the ports.

I'm connected wirelessly to a bell modem. I tried to install the game on a different computer hooked up wirelessly to the same modem and it worked, would that mean the ports are not an issue?
