LAN gaming issue with Arris NVG510

Just got my U-verse set up, and all is well except for one area, and that is gaming over my LAN.  I didn't change my settings with my computer, but I did get a new modem/router (Arris NVG510).  There seems to be some firewall setting preventing any one computer from communicating with another (for gaming over the LAN), but I don't know how to get around this.  My main computer is wired into the modem, but my son's computer is Wifi. I tried calling AT&T, but they weren't much help.  I would greatly appreciate any help in this matter.

Okay, then what?

 

I see "Service" and "Needed by Device" pull down menus.  I just wanted to play over the LAN. Do I need a custom service?  I never thought that it would be so difficult just to play over the LAN.


Here's the manual:

Go to page 53, will explain how to do it. 😉

With the computer on the uverse network, open your internet browser to 192.168.1.254 enter the code on side of gateway as instructed. Click on the firewall tab then click NAT/gaming

Let me get this straight... you're just trying to play a game with LAN communication between the two computers.  No contact with any Internet hosted game server?

 

Can you tell us what game?

Do you know if it uses TCP/IP to communicate?

Can you PING each other's computers?

Do you have any networking equipment other than the U-verse Residential Gateway (switches, other routers or access points)?

Thanks for the manual.  I downloaded it, and its instructions seemed to have solved the issue.
