comment Creating a whitelist of websites on the router
The question is on-topic for Super User; FYI check out dansguardian, it may suit your needs. Whitelisting is a very labor intensive way to solve your problem

comment ADSL device providing No NAT DMZ alongside NAT (IPv4)
If you have a static, 1:1 nat translation between public and private IP addresses, nmap --traceroute should not be a problem. I don't really think NAT is the issue here; it sounds like the problem is PAT overload. More basic than all that though... what are you hoping to accomplish? Solve the nmap problem, or ask a theoretical question? It seems that the "theoretical: does this device exist" portion of the question is irrelevant if you can solve the nmap problem... no?
