Port forwarding is only for when packets are coming inbound to a NAT'ed network and no inbound IP address exists in the NAT table (e.g. a freshly initiated inbound connection, say for example if you have a service running inside of the network.)
Im having some issues trying to play worms reloaded online with some mates, As worms apparently uses steamworks i have been advised to try and upen up ports. >Click Me<

Virgin Media's Super Hub is what is needed, Im on 30MB/s atm, Getting upgraded to 60MB/s next month for free.

Virgin Media’s Super Hub, also known as a Netgear CG3101D, is a combined cable modem and router. It comes as part of the standard installation package for new 100Mbit/s, 50Mbit/s and 30Mbit/s customers, or as a 30 upgrade for existing 20Mbit/s subscribers – you need the new router to take advantage of speeds faster than 20Mbit/s.
