First thing, I have Clearwire's Clear wireless internet. I have a port that I opened to try and host a Minecraft server on it, but a couple of friends have not been able to get in (though in the server i see the fail attempts). Could anyone give me some insight to what could be the problem?

I think I have correctly set my router as the dmz, and forwarded the port on my router. Or is it just something my isp won't allow?

Likely the server's Firewall is locking out any attempts of untrusted users logging in. You have to provide an "open" port for access, yet ensure it is monitored for any threats. The Firewall has to know that port is open to external inputs. It is a good idea to provide a user name and password check point. Thus registering, those users have mostly unlimited features access, while the OS and data base are locked down. But those without registration can only view.

Note: Clearwire does not allow web hosting inside the network. Port 80 is blocked and will not be opened for static IP addresses. As a solution to your hosting needs, Clearwire provides free offsite web hosting. See Email and Web setup for more information.
