connection to router via lan and wan

hi all have a strange issue , i might just be missing something

internet---------adsl router -----2651 cisco router------lan

i can telnet and ssh to the router via the lan but not the internet even though i have opened port 22 and 23 to allow telnet ans ssh access to the cisco router and am having no joy connecting via the wan

when i replace the router with an old 1924 switch i can telnet to the switch from the wan and lan

why can i connect to the switch and not the router via the wan and connect to both via the lan

to me being able to connect to the switch on port 23 proves the port is forwarding requests

the router has a basic config on it , no access lists or other stoppers i can see

cheers for any info

It has to be something in the router config that is causing your problem. Could you post the output of show run on your router?
