I have a Netgear MR814 wireless router. It was listed under Port Forwarding and it was pretty straightforward. I did, however, have to create a custom connection for SSH (which is port 22 btw).
I was also required to let the router know I was using the dyndns.org service.
I don't know if any of this helps, but being a Newbie, I was excited that you were asking about something I knew a little about.
Take care, and good luck.
