Well use the router stemming off of the modem.

What kind of router is it?
You will need to get to the web interface to forward whatever IP/ports to whatever IP address(server's IP/Port)
Try 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or use ipconfig through a cmd prompt and use the IP address labeled default gateway to get connected to the router.

What game?

Check firewall settings.

Also try and ping the IP address of the server from wherever whoever is trying to connect from. If no response then it is not configured correctly.

Check the port number and the IP address that the router is forwarding to.

Also you stated that you have a router plugged into a router... why is this?

ps leaving work post later.
