Ok well lets try this in a slightly different approach:
(FYI: I don't work for buffalo but if you'd prefer to PM me some of the data that's fine. Otherwise if you'd like to modify your datasets, we can work w/ that, just keep the #'s consistent for discussion ;) ).
What is the LAN (local) IP of your Linkstation?
For your 2Wire 2701, are you running DHCP on it?
According to your 2Wire 2701, what is your WAN (true) IP address?
How did you setup port forwarding, and did you go to "Firewall settings" to 'allow access' to the Linkstation as a host for that?
Shouldn't use DMZPlus mode or whatever 2Wire calls it, seems to be problematic (well there's also security risks etc).
Finally this might answer PCPiranha's question...
For internet acccess, do you need to launch anything on your computer, or are your username + password for dsl inside your 2Wire device for automatic login?

ok rinthos, here goes
LAN IP of linkstation is 192.168.1.xx
Running DHCP on my 2wire 2701
According to 2wire my WAN IP is 121.7.163.xxx
For portforwarding, yes, under "firewall settings" set port 8000 to allow access to linkstation. Only used the DMZ mode to test if in any chance i did the port forwarding wrong.
Finally, for internet access, the userid and password are stored inside the 2wire for automatic login
thanks once again for all your time.

i wished it was that easy notoriouskp :(
I allowed anonymous, I set up another userid just in case admin n guest doesnt work. But cant even connect in the first place without even asking me for password

So while on your own LAN, what happens when you go to:
(where xxx is whatever your actual IP value is).
I understand you said you can get to it 'locally' but I'm curious if you can only get to it locally using the WAN address? (since you're on the same subnet).
Also for the sake of asking, your computer on the LAN has a 192.168.1.X ip address as well, correct?

Ok, so when I do http://121.7.163.xxx:9000 i get the error connection timed out (in firefox) in Safari the error is that "Safari can’t open the page “http://121.7.163.xxx:9000/” because the server where this page is located isn’t responding."
I can only access if i do a 192.168.1.xx:9000
Yes, all my computers on the LAN has a 192.168.1.xx ip address
