Well, the only area I know "handshaking" from is for datatransmission.
It discribes the process when the rout and the source agree to each others terms of transmission(e.g. protocol or speed). Dunno if it helps you, but I'd bet, that your firewall/rout just blocks the incoming traffic for pb/rtcw:)
As it seems your internet-connection works pretty well. Thats why I highly doubt that you have any communication-problems between your comp and your rout:p
