Having difficulty hosting GR games online.

I am using Win XP with firewalling turned off, GR patched to 1.4 & Desert Siege. I am using Broadband through Motorola SB2400 cable modem. I have Zone Alarm running but GR.exe and gs4,exe have full program access, and ubi.com is in trusted zone. Have Netgear RP614 router (cos have 2 PCs!) with port forwarding set up for ports 2346 to 2348, 6667, 40000 to 42000. Also set UBI general settings to have external IP for playing online.

I can play other's games OK but when set up my own hosted game, it appears in the lobby OK, GR loads, server settings done. When I Alt+Tab back to lobby I can see others join but they never appear in the game!

Any ideas please?

What error/message do they get when they try to connect to your PC?

Have you checked that the internal IP, to which you have forwarded the ports, hasn't changed? even though those internal IP are quite stable, I have myself experienced that the router once in while assigns another address and changes the last digit.
