    have you checked the iptables ?maybe there are some rules that block the outgoing traffic.or the router has a build-in firewall.

    Are you trying to ftp files? If so, kopete isn't going to work. Try gFTP or some such similar program. Also, if you can't send files using kopete, try using xchat.
