I have an application that requires a port forwarded/opened and am using an AirportExtreme vs 7.7.2 model 2013 which is currently in Bridge Mode as this is the only mode that works with my Time Warner Cable SBG6580 cable modem while it is currently in NAPT mode.

Because port forwarding is not an option with Bridge Mode on the AirPort Extreme, how can I use the AirPort router and enable the DHCP and NAT option on it?

Like you said it's not possible when in bridge mode.
Can you turn it on from the Time Warner Cable box ? The modem from Time Warner does support NAT.

Try logging into the web admin console using the username : admin , password : motorola

The port has to be forwarded by the modem, not by the AE, if the AE is in bridge mode. The modem is acting as a NAT router.

Bridge Mode (Off) is actually not bridge mode at all and needs to be the correct selection.  ISP has all ports under stealth mode and there is nothing we can do to enable specific ports.
