Hmm.. in my knowledge this should work. Telling you about tcpdump I'm trying to find where's problem. tcpudmp show you if any packets from telnet going back to router (from --> router). With tcpudmp you can state precisely problem. You must know, where exactly packtets are lost.. Are they returning back from telnet to router? Or no? Or maybe they return but not go out from router to internet... Watch it with tcpdump.
Ah... your /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward is set to 1? (cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward)

Yes, your ISP could be blocking it. Have someone attempt a telnet session from outside and monitor tcpdump on your router.
