Using netmeeting wil be difficult. You have to forward the ports on the router(s) to the internal machine, and netmeeting uses dynamic ports
http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/app_port_list.htm
"H.323 compliant video player,
NetMeeting 2.0, 3.0, Intel Video Phone
(Watch Out! Opens a wide port range!)
(Incoming calls are not possible  
due to NetMeeting assigning ports dynamically.)"
from above source
so, since  you are both behind a router, neither one of you can accept incoming calls (unless your router(s) specifically has a setting to allow netmeeting)
you may want to look into other conferencing software, and then forward the correct ports for that app (see your router documentation for info on how to forward the ports)
