Port Forwarding may not help you, as its technology that allows applications from the internet to talk to applications on your computer and vice-versa. Programs such as PcAnywhere for example require port forwarding to be set on the router so the client can talk to the host. The fact that you can download at all means there's another issue somewhere else.
