You need to open the specific ports that the game uses in the router interface. If you play a lot of games, you might need to go to DMZ, however it would be very wise to disable it every time you were finished playing. For security reasons, of course.

when I enable DMZ, will the Other PCs on my NetWork still have internet (and will they be safe still)?

Sorry, but I should have stated that you should only enable DMZ on the actual computer you will be playing on. Yes, other computers on your network will still have access, however just enabling DMZ is taking a chance in and of itself. Many gamers still do it everyday without a problem though.
