No more room on Port Foward list in Router settings.

I have a Belkin N+ Wireless router that I've fowarded 20 ports on, but I need to foward more and it won't go past 20. Is there anyway to get more ports fowarded? Thanks.

That's odd.

I've never had to do more than a few. What's causing the need and why can't we put that machine in the DMZ?

I was going to DMZ if there was no solution. So, no biggy if I can't add more.

But maybe you are running a game server which is a different scenario. I can't guess that.

Here we have zero port forwards, but worth noting is I enabled UPNP on the router and see it work its magic.
