I currently have a 3COM OfficeConnect router, and it seems I cannot get the port forwarding to work, and neither does my Qnap TS-410 seem to be able to recognize the device as UPnP enabled for the cloud service.

I wondered, can anyone tell me if this router is UPnP and port forwarding enabled?

If not, what router, a high end one, for wifi, can I get that will let me use these options?

Yes, you shouldn't have to forward ports if you have UPnP enabled on most devices. It really sounds like you have some other problems that won't be solved by buying a $120 router. – Ramhound Oct 7 '11 at 17:16
@Ramhound Unless the particular router is buggy, which happens often or in the case that new router is needed anyway. – AndrejaKo Oct 7 '11 at 17:18

It appears to meet the requirement you listed.

In general the best way to find out about features of a device you plan to buy is to go to the manufacturer's support site and read the manual for the device.

In your case, you can go here and find the manual under downloads (the link in the center field doewn't work, but the downloads does). I found the needed info on page 26.
