Port Forward Issues TalkTalk Super Router

My router refuses to forward ports. I have no idea why. It's not just a specific port, it's any port I try to forward. I have it setup correctly. I've posted screens to show my configuration. Any suggestions?

When you tested using CanYouSeeMe.org, was there a running service listening on that specific port? If there wasn't then that would account for the result.

Try running another online port probe using ShieldsUP!. Enter the port number in the white box then click on "User Specified Custom Port Probe". If it shows "Closed" then you have indeed setup port forwarding properly but there's no service listening on that port. "Open" indicates that it's open and listening. "Stealth" means it's well and truly closed and your port forwarding hasn't worked.

PS, I forgot to mention - Port 80 may not be the best one to use for testing purposes. It may be reserved by your router for remote administration (this can usually be changed), and some ISPs block that port because they don't want folks running home webservers.
