See this site to understand how active and how passive FTP mode are

Try with setting

in /etc/sysconfig/iptables-config. This will be active after a "service
iptables restart". If it does not fix your problem - and I guess the
problem is the D-Link router - you will have to tell the clients to use
active ftp mode only.
