Try enabling UPNP on your router as well.

Even then I don't think it works if both users are behind NAT even if they're both set up correctly. MSN messenger sucks behind routers.

Update the firmware, i think 1.45 or 1.44.2 is the latest for that router.

then in Windows XP enable "universal plug and plug" and enable it inside your router.
