I just moved recently (2 blocks) and I am having troubles getting my FTP server back online. It worked fine before but now it is giving me a big headache. I did change a couple of things since the move. I changed routers from a D-Link WBR-1310 to a Linksys WRT54GS. I also changed from my ISP's rented modem to a Linksys cm100. I still have the same ISP (Charter). I have gone through all my settings many times but I just can't connect from outside the network. I have switched back to my old router to see if it was an issue with the Linksys and it still didn't work. I went as far as turning off Windows firewall, connected the server directly to the modem and I am still not able to ping or telnet the server. I found it odd that I can't ping from outside the network. I thought maybe Charter started blocking Port 21 but not being able to even ping tells me I am missing something. I can only think it is something with the modem. The FTP server is running Windows 7 and I am running Filezilla Server.

Make sure its not against Charter's terms to run a server, most ISPs don't allow servers on home/basic connections.

But also, check the new modem and make sure it has all ports forwarded too. If the modem is doing routing/dhcp itself, then you should turn dhcp on the router off and allow the modem to handle the IPs and port forwarding.
