Port Forwarding my Airport Extreme

I've been trying for the past 2-3 weeks to port forward my Airport Extreme on my Mac. I have gone to MANY different Youtube videos, and they all seem to work, except I can't do what they do. When I pull up Airport Utility, all that comes up is:
<My computer's name>'s Airport Extreme. Then there is a line connecting that text to this: Internet. And next to it is the picture of a globe. On all the Youtube videos, it shows them with a completely different window. I'm not at all an expert, so please specify if you can.

The current version of the airport configuration utility traded less functionality for a more pretty interface. Doing so, they inadvertently removed the means to change the settings you need to access.

You can still change the settings using the prior version of the airport configuration utility (v 5.3.3 I think). You'll need to download this version.

You need to download the version 5.6 Airport Utility - here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1482

That version should give you the settings that you need...
