I've ran into this problem with Linksys APs...  In my case, we were using
them as wireless bridges, essentially, with one of the four ports attached
to the network.  It seems like they want to send anything out the WAN
interface, even if you aren't using it.

remotely log into them using port forwarding.  I did this easily on my old
linksys, but for some reason i think im missing a rule, or something in the
firewall setttings.  What i'd like to do is basicallly put in the WAN IP
with the port that is forwarded(ex. 216.127.71.160:3333) and have it open up
the wireless AP on 192.168.1.2.  Can anyone help me?

what James posted will work fine, if the AP has a default gateway set
properly and the gateway works as it should.  But, it seems that at
least half the time that this comes up, the AP doesn't use its default
gateway as it should (so no host outside the local network can access
it).  If you have it configured properly and it still doesn't work,
this is almost certainly why.  Make sure the gateway is properly
defined, and if it still doesn't work, make sure the AP is running the
latest firmware.  Some AP's aren't fixable to work with this, in which
case I'd recommend contacting the vendor.
