Windows 7: Port Forwarding Problems

Port Forwarding Problems

First of all I don't know if this is the ideal place (Forum) to post something like this but here it goes!

Okay so long story short, the problem I have is basically that every time I try to portforward a port it just doesn't get forwarded for some reason.. (Oh and I have had this problem for about 1 year now)
For example I can't host a Minecraft server because the port just won't open, but the funny thing is that some ports actually get forwarded for games and such but usually that's UPnP that does that kind of stuff, its mostly when I manually port forward ports when it just wont open them.

The Router I have is a "Asus RT-AC66U" and I have a custom firmware that's called Tomato (Version 1.28)

Thees are the thing I have tried:
I have tried to switch router (no difference)
Turned of the Firewall + antivirus (no difference)
Connected directly (cable) to my Modem (no difference)

I have a really short memory so don't remember what more I have tested.
This is all just a big mystery for me and really it is hard as heck to explain...

If I have missed some information please reply to this post with what I should add.

I would suspect the Tomato firmware. Can you remove it and go back to the initial firmware and test.
