LinkSys Router BEFSR41 - no incoming requests handled

I have a LinkSys Router BEFSR41 in place on a small network with less then 10 computers. Internet access is fine, but for some reason it does not forward incoming requests to the proper places (web services on port 80, for example).

I have tried to set "Port Range Forwarding", "Port Triggering" and "UPnP Forwarding". On the device "UPnP Forwarding" is specifically meant to provide such public services. The settings appear all to be correct.

Could this be a hardware problem? Does anyone with a similar device had some problem like this?

Solved: "Port Range Forwarding" and "UPnP Forwarding" both were set and that caused the conflict as it seems. Now only "Port Range Forwarding" is used (as allows for both TCP and UDP packages).
