i have not tried yo change the router admin interface port if you could tell or show me a guide how to do it. – Ricardo
Sorry, I don't have your router, so can only refer you to its documentation, where you certainly can find out if you're able to change the admin port at all. Else you have to be very patient until someone else with experience about this router stumbles over this thread by chance.

So, basically you can view your web page normally within your LAN but from remote locations you get your router's admin interface? Then, I recommend changing the admin port on your Speedtouch. I happen to have had the same router model as you, although an older version (v6). It is possible to do this on that router as long as you have administration rights on it (it sounds like you do). It must be done via CLI (connect to it via telnet).
I assume you have already forwarded port 80 from the Speedtouch to the computer, by the way.
