opening ports on the home hub

  mannock 21:49 24 Apr 2008

i'm having trouble hosting some games so i am trying to open/forward the relevant ports on my bt home hub. but when testing them with a site like: click here
it tells me that not only are those ports closed, but after a complete port scan, that all ports are closed. yet i've disabled the hub firewall, disabled the windows firewall, have absolutely no security sofware on my pc whatsoever, am browsing the internet, using skype, checking emails etc, so how can all ports possibly be closed? am i using the test site correctly? it tells me straight away what my external ip address is, so i leave that alone and just enter a port number to test.
