Port forwarding not working on PTI PAE-CE84 ADSL modem/router

I can’t seem to get virtual server (port forwarding) working on our cheap PTI PAE-CE84 ADSL modem/router. I’m trying to set up remote desktop over the internet. It shows the correct ports being forwarded but when I try them it simply doesn’t work. I think it may be a problem with the firmware as this is a very cheap router but I’ve tried what I believe to be the latest version from here:

I’ve verified the correct ports are opened on our server's built in software firewall by using remote desktop locally. This is why I believe it’s the port forwarding issue on the router. I tried putting the server under DMZ just to test and that didn’t work either. Could it be anything else? If it’s definitely the router then I’ll ask another question to find it’s replacement.

If the router has port forwarding capabilities it should work.  If you have the ports correctly forwarded per the routers instructions and no firewalls are in between blocking port 3389, it couldn't really be anything else.  When testing port forwarding, you are connecting from outside your network using the IP address provided by your ISP, right?

Yes, if I use our WAN IP address it brings up the router config pages, even though port 80 is set to forward to the server running IIS. Also, port 3389 is set to the server and still no joy. All IP have been fixed and DHCP disabled. I'm pretty sure it's just the worst router ever made.
