first you need to configure the router to direct requests to port 21 from the internet to the internal address of the machine running the ftp server. this can usually be done by pointing your web browser to the router (gateway ip address usually something like 192.168.100.1) you'll need to consult the routers documentation for exact details and the default password, some use no user name with 'admin' as the password others use 'password' as the password.
once you get to the routers administration page the service can be 'mapped' under 'advanced' setting, under 'mapping', or sometimes under 'applications'. some even have a preset for ftp and all you need to do is check 'allow' and enter the addy of the computer running the service the click 'apply settings'. once again check you documentation for the router your using
