Remember : All the Modems/Routers are manufactured on the principles of Computer Networking....hence they should allow every authentic user to have no problems in inbound/outbound packet transferring capabilities......It s always us who are not able to configure it properly...
There is very slight to no difference in configuring any explained here..
Please use your common sense while you configure modem/router webpage (explore each and every tab of Modem/Router page and get as much information about it as you can).
It is equally essential to configure your modem to let outside data packets to interact with your Already running Counter Strike 1.6 Server.

If you notice that Your serever is not listed in the Server List Display inside you game.
This is where you need to think that your Modem may not be rightly counfigured for outside data acceptance.

Note:It really doesnt matter much which modem you have....most of the default settings work just fine (nowadays most of the ADSL2+ Modems are autoport forwarding).
