Opening Ports

My friend is trying to connect to my network so we can play a game but is unable to connect and I think the reason is because i need to allow him to connect to the router, how is this done? any help would be appreciated.

By the way it is a Belkin ADSL modem with wireless G router.

For your mate to connect to a secure wireless network they need to enter the WEP key which is used as a type of password. The KEY is a list of letters and numbers usually found on the base of the router, on the label. your mate should then open control panel/network connections and make a new connection. When promted for the KEY type it in and then follow the rest of the prompts.

Once sorted right click the icon that appears in the taskbar showing a double PC screen and select view available networks, select yours and connect to it.
