  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

I believe this model router doesn't support loopback.  All external WAN side addresses should be already accessible from the LAN side unless your doing something specific. What is it your trying to do exactly? Is this router being used for home or a business?

Try using and configuring Virtual Server?
