    How is your router going to know where to direct traffic to if you have the same port directed to more than one IP address? Surely if you are hosting the game, you only need to map the port to the IP of your server?

    Firstly I would say to set your computers IP to a static address, so when mapping the ports the IP won’t change next time u boot up. Make sure you set the gateway to the IP of the router and then give it a few minutes for the changes to take place.

    Remove all the port forwards you have now and put these in:

    1 6112 6112 TCP X.X.X.X
    2 6112 6112 UDP X.X.X.X (X’s being your now static IP)

    Also with games you usually find that it will open a new port for each gamer (I know it does for CoD) so i would do the same for other port ranges such as 6113, 6114.

    EDIT: I looked on a few warcraft web sites seems you only need to open the 6112 port

    do you have SP2 Installed? If so it may be an idea to turn off the windows firewall (in control panel) & see if that sorts out your problem.

    what ip address do you give out to the other people becasuse it should go
    with what ever ip your isp is giving you lets use this as an ip 44.45.46.44
    you tell them to use this 44.45.46.44:(what ever port you are using)

    also then you user port forwarding use the ip address the router is giving (i am going to try and explan this the best i can) but say your router giving you the ip of 162.168.1.1 use port forwarding so that port 21 goes only to the ip 192.168.1.1 so then you give the ip of your isp out it will only go to your computer
