Regain Admin Tools Port Forwarding?

I recently realized that using the xFi port forwarding seems to disable the ability to do more advanced port forwarding in the Admin Tools on the router. Brilliant. Is there any way to get those back?

 

Will a factory reset allow me to define my own port forwarding in the Admin Tools again? I need to be able to define the destination port for the forward. Not just the IP to forward to.

No. Only xFi now. While a reset could temporarily restore access, it would just lock it back to xFi.

From the description you’re giving me, it seems that you’re not looking for Port Forwarding. The feature you seem to be referring to is Port Triggering.

That's unfortunate. It does look like port triggering may well do what I need though. I'll give that a try.

Reading about it, that seemed like it might work, but looking at the available options for the settings, I see no way to determine which IP to forward the ports to.
