First and foremost, you don't want to allow all traffic to your PC, otherwise what would be the point of having your firewall/router in the first place.

You need to first determine which ports you actually need forwarded for your games. Nearly all on-line games I have, have this information detailed either in the game instructions or on their website. Failing that, post the details of the game here and I will attempt to find the port details for you.

Once your've determined that, then you need to forward them to your computer. I will later today try and locate some details about your router, and how you go about this.

Is there an option on your router to set DMZ? Look for it, and set it to your LAN IP, and all ports will be forwarded to your IP on the network.

Just run IPconfig without the all bit, and look under the section marked "Ethernet", it will give you your PC's IP addy there.

My mention about the router's firewall, is that a hardware firewalls are normally more secure, more stable and loss prone to being bypassed that software ones. However if your happy with your setup, then putting your PC in the DMZ will also solve the problem.
