Save yourself a headache and buy a better router.

There is a reason why these things are free.

 

1. They drop port forwarding rules at random. (seen this happen on 3 different units)

2. You cannot port forward anything attached to a Wifi station, as the actual device never appears in the routing table.

3..... and even when it works the port forwarding interface is godawful, and unnessesarily convoluted.
