Cheap router required for port forwarding allowing to the specific IP range


I need a cheap WAN router which would allow me to set up port forwarding in such a way that I can provide the IP range with subnet of the devices which can use this port forwarding. So far, I only found routers which only allow to specific single IP address of the remote host so if I had to input the IP range in question, I would have over 1000 entries and even that is not supported by most of the routers.
I know this may be unusual and I hope you came across such a device.
It is not a problem if I had to buy a second hand from eBay to keep the cost down.

Can't be done it is a one to one translation (NAT) rule a vpn or an internal gateway would be a better solution.

I suggest Cisco router 1900 series, is good enough for small office
Tom SkowyrskiAuthor Commented:
Does Cisco 1900 allow for port forwarding based on IP range then? Or would I have to use something else like internal gateway with it?

As stated NAT is a 1 to 1 relationship.
