thats b/c games on open bnet are not hosted by blizz servers. You are trying to directly connect to the host's computer which is usually not as powerful as blizz's server. Its recommended that you have broadband. Even with that, its gonna be pretty laggy.

Apparently, despite what Blizzard's support page says, you should only need to open Port 6112 TCP in order to join and host games on open bnet. If that doesn't work, you can try opening port 4000 TCP as well.
 
It should be mentioned that Open is not a controlled environment, and is rife with cheating and hacking.

If you're after a more pleasant experience, there is a Single Player board on these Forums who hold MP games.
