Port Forwarding Screen Shot: I am 100% sure the ports are forwarded (27000 - 27060)

So, as for my issue...
I have run a TF2 server with the exact same setup as above for several months now, but I had recently gotten a new router. So, I forwarded the ports, set it all up and what not. However, whenever someone joins my server, it says "So-and-so connected (" This is fine and dandy and what not, except..that is MY IP, not theirs. Along with this, my server appears to go off the master server list after around 8 minutes or more of up-time (only for some people however). But, it sometimes comes back and goes off randomly for no apparent reason. It also doesn't always disappear if it is in your favorites (which makes sense as it is being directly queried), but it sometimes does. I run an Unreal 1 and TS3 server off of the same computer, and they have no issues at all like this.
I really am at a loss as to why it only occurs in TF2 and what is causing it (server setting or router setting). Upon searching for issues similar to this, I didn't find any at all.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

I had already tried that, sorry for not mentioning it. But I have made some adjustments to router settings and I suppose I should try again.

** Tried it, and still nothing. Server disappears from the list, people have my IP, etc.

*** Okay, now my Unreal server appears to be having the same dam it's some BS with my router apparently..great..

**** Well now..the Unreal server appears to have magically fixed itself...what is this goddamn magical adventure...and why am I talking to myself...who knows
