There are lots of issues with being behind routers doing NAT. It is
not possible to tell from the information you gave which specific one
applies to your case -- US Robotics makes many different models and
any specific model could be configured in a myriad of ways.  Ekiga
handles many of the issues pretty well by using STUN. You need to run
the Configuration Assistant[0] to see what information it can tell you
about what type of NAT you may be experiencing.  See the wiki [1] for
more information on NAT specifically.

Good luck and ask on the list again if you still have trouble after
experimenting and reading a bit.
