ange-ftp in emacs behind a router/firewall stops at ls...

I've searched the group for information on using ange-ftp in emacs.

My setup is this :

DSL connection going to a Linksys Wireless Access Point (BEFW11S4),
and my PC is connected to the router.

I can connect to any FTP server on the internet using a regular FTP
client such as WS_FTP.

When I try with Emacs, it hangs after I enter the password.  During
the "hang", I see the router lights flash continuously, which means
that ange-ftp is constantly trying to accomplish something.  If I
Ctrl-G the process, and I look at the log, it seems to hang at the
"ls" command.

I can reproduce the same behaviour when using the regular FTP client
without Passive transfers...  the lights on the router are flashing,
and the connection is never complete (I never get a directory

Here's my .emacs (at least the part concerning ange-ftp) :

(require 'ange-ftp)
(setq ange-ftp-ftp-program-name "d:/windows/system32/ftp.exe")
(setq ange-ftp-tmp-name-template
      (concat (expand-file-name (getenv "TEMP")) "/ange-ftp/"))
(setq ange-ftp-gateway-tmp-name-template
      (concat (expand-file-name (getenv "TEMP")) "/ange-ftp/"))
(setq ange-ftp-smart-gateway "")

Can anyone help me ?
