Well, it "work", i can connect with my ip 192.168...., but it's my ip from MY network, not my real IP. I just cant connect with my real IP ( 189....) and when i try to add it in my favorites, the server appears with the name "Unknow Server" and "?" ping. I am on the DMZ of my router. I already configured my firewall. What more can I do?

If you're running it from within your network then you won't be able to see or connect to it from an external IP address. Other people should be able to though. It should show up on your LAN tab.

I don't get it. I'm on the DMZ, so I'm exposed to the Internet. Why only computers on my network would be able to connect?

That's not what I am saying, I am saying that if you are trying to connect to your own server from inside the same LAN then you can only use your internal IP address. Other people can use your public IP address.

Well that's not what you said originally... ;)

Check that the ports are actually open by using a tool like the one on PortForward: http://portforward.com/help/portcheck.htm

Close the server and game, run the program, and go through each port or set of ports in turn and see if they are open. If they come back as anything else then you have something blocking them even though you are in the DMZ and you say your firewall is configured.

Well... And wich ports are we talking about? XD 'cause I just disabled the firewall (easy way XD) and the DMZ, in theory should "cheat" the router rules, making my PC the only one expose to the internet without limitations, without having to open ports... etc..

From the sticky topic about the dedicated server tutorial:

7707 UDP/IP (Game Port)
7708 UDP/IP (Query Port)
7717 UDP/IP (GameSpy Query Port)
28852 TCP/IP and UDP (Allows your Server to Connect to the Master Server Browser)
8075 TCP/IP (Port set via ListenPort that your WebAdmin will run on)
20560 UDP/IP (Steam Port)

And yes, if you've added the computer's IP address that is running the server to the DMZ then in theory it should bypass the need for this, but sometimes routers don't do what they should. You could try adding those to the port forwarding rules section in the router and turning off the DMZ just to try if it says your ports are closed.
