What did you mean by "I cannot see my router in my network infrastructure"?
What are you intended to do?
What router make and modell are you using?

To connect to your router you need to know it's LAN IP address. To find that out, open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and type the following command:

ipconfig /all

The "Default Gateway" address is the LAN IP of your router. Now, open a web browser, type that IP into the URL field and hit enter and you should be prompted for login information. This will be the username/password you configured on the router when you first set it up. Enter that info and you'll be at the management interface for your router where you can now create your port forward.

Perhaps if you explain what it is you're trying to achieve we may be better able to help you.

For instance, you might say,

"I'm running a game server in my home and I want to allow people from the internet to connect to that server and play"

or you might tell us,

"I'm trying to remotely connect to one of the computers in my home network"

BlackxtHunder,

as stated in #3, you have to figure out your default gateway address, which is also the ip address of your router.

Then, you have to open your favorite internet browser and type in the ip address you figured out.

Then, in firewall settings, or maybe it's called NAT settings, you have to configure the ports (tcp and udp), to be forwareded to your computers ip address, which can also be figured out with an ipconfig /all.

The ports, you need to forward to your computers ip address are:
TCP 3074, 3075, 5223
UDP 3074, 3075, 3478

The routers manual should help on howto port forward.
