I managed to put the server up but then I lost wireless connection to all laptops in here.
Here's what I have:

IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
DHCP Server: Enable
Starting IP Address: 192.168.1.100
End IP Address: 192.168.1.149

That's the issue here, if I reduce the range of IP's to only 5 I managed to run the llrnet server, when at 50 (default) the llrnet goes down.

I don't know what are you talking about, I am ignorant.
Okay, I've done a bit of research on your modem, and here's what you need to do:

-Go to the server (I presume this is Windows XP?) and open a command prompt.
-Type the command "ipconfig /all". Look at the output where it says "Ethernet connection Local Area Connection", and then look for "DNS Servers" under that. The one on a line directly from the word "DNS Servers" is the IP address of your primary DNS server, and the one below that for the secondary one. Write these down.
-Now go to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections.
-Find the connection listed called "Local Area Network Connection" (or "Wireless Network Connection" if you're connecting to your router wirelessly).
-Right-click the connection and choose "Properties". If you see a box that looks like this, then click the Properties button on that; otherwise, if you see one that looks like this, then skip directly to the next step.
-Click the words "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click the Properties button below that.
-You should now see a box that looks like this. Make the box look like the one in the screenshot, except that under "Preferred DNS Server" and "Alternate DNS Server" enter the IP addresses that you wrote down in the first step.

The server is now set to have a static IP on your local network. Now open a web browser and go to your router's setup page at http://192.168.1.1.

-Click the "Applications and Gaming" link near the top of the setup page.
-In the first empty row of boxes, enter the following information:
Application: LLRnet C6000
Start:
6000
End: 6000
Procotol: TCP (this is the default)
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Enable: (check this box)

Now click "Save Settings" near the bottom of the page. You should see a big page that says "Settings saved"; click Continue. You can now close out your browser.

After doing this, C6000 *should* work.

Hope this helps!
Max

Max, it's working again, thanks. A question, will "Preferred DNS Server" and "Alternate DNS Server"change in the future?

It shouldn't. If your ISP does move its DNS servers then they'll probably notify you well in advance.

Alternatively, you could use OpenDNS, a third-party DNS service which offers all sorts of neat features like content filtering, statistics tracking, and even a nice little speedup due to some tweaks they've put in place on their end. And--more importantly to the situation at hand--their DNS servers will most likely stay at those same IP addresses (208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) as long as the Internet still uses IPv4 addresses.

If he has his router is setup to obtain and IP and DNS info (default) from ISP, his router's DHCP service will keep the rest of the inside LAN computers updated.

Yup. Make sure you do it in the Single Port Forward section so you're forwarding port 443 external to port 6000 internal and not forwarding ports 443-6000 as they are to your server. (unless I'm misunderstanding what you're trying to do)

Possibly...but there's a chance that whatever was keeping your router from working directly on port 443 in the first place would keep you from being able to do a forward from 443 to 6000. And I'm not quite sure that your particular model of modem would work with forwarding from one port to another...but, it's worth a try.

Edit: Ah, I see Mini-Geek beat me to the punch on this one. I didn't know there was a Single Port Forward section...hmm, maybe my Linksys router (a WRT54G, somewhat older than Carlos's) just doesn't have one. At any rate, portforward.com (which is where I found much of my info on how to configure Carlos's modem) didn't mention anything.

I'll do that tomorrow. Thank you all for the help.

Edit: I hope I didn't mess the wireless connection because if so tomorrow I will have to listen to my two sisters...lol
