Fifa 06 Online (ps2) 'Failed to connect' problem

I am having problems with playing fifa 06 online.
I can connect to the EA sports server, because it let me accept my freinds 'freind request'.
And also it lets me find a player to start a game with.
Once i get to the team selection stage, after about 5/10 seconds, it says failed to connect.
This hasn't happened everytime, i managed to get about 4 games to actually work, but that was after putting up with about 100 'failed to connect' errors. It is about 95% of the time.

I am using a sweex annex router (wired), which has a built in modem.
I am on 1meg adsl broadband, with tiscali. (with no bandwidth limit)
I have followed the instructions on www.portforward.com and opened the necessary ports to play games online.

Any advice would be apprecaited.

Sorry, One thing that i forgot to mention.

I did not have an access code when i bought the ps2. So i just set up the settings with my network access disc, then put in fifa 06.
I dont know if this makes a difference? because i do have an ea sports account.
I just remember on the ps2 central server, it asked me to enter an access code to sign up for something else.
Just thought this may help you help me.
