[Network] How do I port Foward my windstream modem?

Well, I've looked everywhere for someone who might know how to do this in dept. My Speed stream modem is a 4200 series
and I'm kinda new to port forwarding, how do I open a port to
let my steam client through, cause it keeps showing up on LAN
and I want it to show on the servers list instead of LAN.
I know how to get in and configure it so I'm not a complete noob. the ports I tried to open were 27000 - 27020 (UDP)
and 27020 - 27050 (TCP) and so far nothing worked.

A little help would be very nice.

You already forwarded the ports?
Try sv_lan 0 in console, it should let friends join I don't know if it will show up on the master server list.

Read this to get the basics:
»www.portforward.com/help/pfprogression.htm

Set your Steam PC to a Static Private IP outside the DHCP Range the 4200 uses. If the 4200 is using all the IPs between 192.168.254.1 and 192.168.254.253 you will have to correct that first. See image:

Then setup Port Forwarding to point to the PC with the Static IP.

The User Guide also has this info, but not as detailed.
