If it works for a few seconds and if you have no problem with the robot,
then I think it is not a NAT problem. I think you forward only port 1720,
and what is the result of the NAT test? CONE NAT?

If so, then the problem is on the WIFI driver side and I suggest you to :
- try without video and see if it works (perhaps too much upload puzzles
the driver)
- contact the author of the driver
