SmartAX-MT882v3
 
SOME ONE PLEASE HELP ME IN DESPERATE NEED OF SOME 🙁 🙁 🙁
 
if you can use the modem / router in bridge mode thenthere will be no need to worry about port forwarding ... however , portforwarding of WA1003A is similar to SmartAX MT841 .

I cannot try this out myself right now, but take note that physical address is always the MAC address. So, after reading through the link I provided before, try this:
1. give your computer, to which you want to forward the ports, a fixed ip address (from its Network Connections wizard, give your LAN card a fixed IP address).
2. in your BSNL modem, just use the IP address of that machine or the mac address of that machine and try to forwards ports (see which of these two methods works).

let me know how that goes.

Speeds shouldn't have changed. No, no need to forward ports in your modem when it is working bridge mode. In modem's bridge mode, you computer's LAN card get a public address.

You need to use of those dynamic IP services to get a hostname for yourself. There are many such services which are free (e.g. http://no-ip.org, http://dyndns.org, etc). Register on one of these, make a domain name for youself, install their client on your computer (it will update your IP information every time you get a new IP) and then tell all your friends your domain name to use. And ... enjoy your games 🙂

Instead of giving them your ip address, give them this domain name. Make sure you have done the stuff to keep dyndns updated from your computer. That is essential, this will keep the domain name pointing to your ip address even if the ip address changed.

So, if you were giving your ip address, e.g. 1.2.3.4, to your friends, just replace that ip address with your new domain name and distribute that info to your fellow players.
