UPnP issues--same router, two systems, one works, other doesn.t

I'm having some difficulty getting UPnP to work with Pidgin (2.7.5, in this case, using the build from the Ubuntu Pidgin-Packagers PPA. But this has been the case for several years at least)
I have two systems--a 64bit Desktop system, and a 32bit Netbook, both of which are connected to a Linksys WRT54g router, running DD-Wrt V24 SP1. Both machines are capable of both wireless and wired connections, the results of which are the same no matter which machine uses which connection.
The odd thing is.. UPnP works fine on the 64 bit desktop--It can get the external IP and forward ports (as evidenced by DD-Wrt's UPnP screen). However, on the 32 bit Netbook, UPnP doesn't work at all
I've made a somewhat minimalist test case where they both attempt to get the external IP on pidgin startup
