Did you see in the quide [your last link] the words Port Mapping?
Did you notice in both screen shots of your router Port Mapping?

Perhaps the key is to click on the port mapping?

thanks for the quick reply,

im interested in forwarding my ports, this guide says i should do it in the "NAT" tab, ive checked all other tabs and there is no specific mentioning of anything related to port forwarding or virtual servers, heres a screen shot of the port mapping tab if that helps:

here is your manual
ftp://ftp.dlink.ru/pub/ADSL/DSL-2500U/Description/DSL-2500U_user%20manual_0823.pdf

review page 28 on the virtual server setup

Note the following;
"If you enable NAT (Network Address Translation), you can configure the Virtual
Server, Port Triggering, and DMZ Host."

I only saw bridge filters on your first post. You need nat.

What does firmware have to do with your issue?

Your screen shot shows "virtual server". So does the manual
Your screen shot shows "bridged". I explained you need nat

Perhaps you didn't understand that to get the "tabs" you need to be set to nat not bridging. That is why I quoted the manual to you.

Do you understand what you need to do next?:

Any tech savvy teenagers you can call upon?

I can't walk you thru the manual but if you follow it to setup NAT you can then go to the Virtual server page to configure port forwarding.

i think i can handle it
do you mean changing the selected network protocol of both my WAN interfaces shown at the screen shot from bridging to something else?
if so what protocol would you suggest changing it to?
heres an image of the options given to me:

oh and also
isnt changing your network protocol something that is necessary for you to let your isp know about?
