Hello there.

I did a quick google search for the Tp-Link TL460 and got every language except english. My best bet would be to make sure the DHCP and port forwarding is set up on the device which is connected to the internet. This is the device that would be using NAT, and forwarding a port  or setting a pinhole is basically modifying the NAT configuration.

Maybe you can provide some info like which IP range etc you got on your LAN.

Your network can have dynamic and static IP addresses. The best thing you can do is to manually configure the router to give out some addresses (for visitors for example) while keeping a space reserved for your static addresses.

Then configure your computers at home with static addresses and change the router's configuration to forward ports and indicated in the website you mentioned before, to the correct IP address of you computer.
