Your router is acting as a firewall, you need to disable it, you need to go to he's settings and turn it off or configure it in a way that he will let people access to your FTP port...

And unless you have a static IP address or a DynDNS (FREE) you will constantly have to change your settigns every time your WAN interface IP address changes.

Not all FTP clients are set as Anonymous (not anomymis:)) by deafult, it might be the problem, other then that i see no problem, i tryed to connect and it worked fine, tell them to just use Internet Explorer and it should work fine.
