Try firewall, or if you use a router set up port fowarding. There should be instructions that came with your router on how to set that up.

If you have the OS X firewall enabled, you go to System Preferences, Sharing. Got to the Firewall tab and click "new", select Port Name "other" and type 6112 (devault battle.net port) in the port range and Warcraft III, Battle.net or something similar on description and hit ok. make sure the checkbox is ticked and you're all set there.

If you have a router, you must configure that as well. Usually you do this through the webbrowser (by connecting to 192.168.0.1 with a Netgear or D-Link router, most use that IP, but some use 10.0.0.1 as well I believe). This can be more tricky, but hopefully your manual to the router can help you there. If not, post here again and we'll see what we can do.

The AirPort is a Router as well, so you need to configure that. As for how, I'm not sure, but there are people here who have it and can help you, so just check in later =)
