"Failed to bind to port" means something's running that's using that port. Check to make sure you don't have the server already running.
If your AC:WW game is bricked, contact me at cj.no.one {at} gmail {dot} com. I will unbrick the cart and restore your save file. Only cost is shipping.

If you don't understand port forwarding, you probably haven't realized your IP changed. It isn't a set IP forever, it changes occasionally. My router allows me to select my computer and it automatically puts in the IP for it, and I just type in the port number I want to open. It's not difficult if your can figure out your router.
