1. Make sure you aren't firewalled!

2. Add the following commands to your config.cfg

sv_region 255
sv_lan 0

check your router settings... it's probablly assigning a random port number to it which will be listed in the game server browsers but connection to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:yyyyy wont work because the yyyyy might just be wrong...

if you're forwarding ports to an IP assigned by something called DHCP (found in the LAN settings page of your router) it probably wont work as most routers treat that as a pointless forward.
