I try creating LAN server to play with my buds, but when they join it says server is not responding

I try creating LAN server to play with my buds, but when they join it says server is not responding. I type the sv_lan 0. I do have a router, so I've port-forwarded hl2server. Yet, I can't get it to work. Do you have suggestions on what I may have forgot or don't know?

    Have you checked the options of the "create server" window to see if there is any inconsistence? I create a server very often and it works for everyone, though, it's only mine that works, my buddies' don't.

    It does work once in a while for this one friend, for a different friend it works all the time, but if others people try besides them two, it won't work at all n_n

    Is this a listen server, or a dedicated server?

    It's when you run a map from the game instead of using a dedicated server.
