When hosting you need to do:
1) Set the hosting computer to a static ip address so it wont change.
2) Open the correct ports for the game you are hosting. Every game is different, although some may use the same ports. Google your game with the words 'open ports' and you should get some hits.

Or you can try this, Set your ip address in the dmz zone. This will leave it completly unblocked and open to the net though. Might try this to see if it is a port issue or not.
