Age Of Empires II - Hosting Problems

Not sure if anyone can help me, but heres the deal.

Whenever i try to host or join a game of Age of Empires II online, the connection always fails.

I have tried using Direct TCP/IP, & Gamespy Arcade.

All of them have failed.

I have opened all the TCP and UDP ports on my router and supplied the correct External IP address when hosting, and still no joy.

I then even went to the lengths of buying a new router, Netgear Rangemax DG834PN, to see if it was just because of my out dated router. (It didnt allow me to specify between UDP or TCP ports)

Any one have any idea of what else i can try?
