Out of Port Forwarding Slots

is there any way to get more port forward slots on my routers settings?

10 slots is the max as far as i can see, any way to increase this number?

i have a linksys WRT54G2

Using the set-up you have there - I can see that by using a port range you can gain a few extra slots but only one there has consecutive ports so that you will end up opening some ports that you do not need to open

Edit

One other way would be to place the PC into the DMZ (opening all ports) and then using a good software firewall to control port status

These simple changes will give you 3 extra slots:

Change: PS3D to: 3478 to 3658
Delete: PS3E and PS3F

Change: BF21 to: 18121 to 18126
Delete: BF22

i found a good solution for now, i just opened all ports on my PS3. i thought if i opened DMZ it would open all ports on all devices, but it only lets it open all ports on a single device which is good in my case.

i think for now it will suffice, PS3 is all i play anyway

thanks for all the feedback guys
