Your problem is that you have Closed NAT. People with Closed NAT cannot connect to people with Moderate NAT or to other people with Closed NAT. You need to open your NAT.

The instructions in the thread that snickerdoodle linked to work for most people. If they don’t work for you, then there may be some other problem with your connection, or you may need to purchase a better router.

One caveat that a few people, myself included, tend to run into: when trying to open your NAT, you cannot have both DMZ enabled and your ports forwarded. Apparently, those two things don’t work side-by-side.
