Once you are at 10.6.8 Lion is still available from Apple. You will have to call Apple Customer Care 1-800-692-7753 or 1-800-676-2775. to purchase it. Then within 3 days you will get an email with a code which you can use to download Lion from the App Store. The price is $19.99. I don't know if Lion will solve your problem.
You must have at least a Late 2006 model 2,1 MacBook.
Lion will require at least 2gb of RAM but really needs 4gb to run smoothly.
As for third party programs see this list for compatibility with 10.7 http://roaringapps.com/apps:table
Also Lion doesn't run any Power PC programs. To see if you have any Power PC programs go to the Apple in the upper left corner and select About This Mac, then click on More Info. When System Profiler comes up select Applications under Software. Then look under Kind to see if any of your applications are listed as Power PC. Universal and Intel will run under Lion.
Before Mac switched to Intel processors in 2006 they used Power PC processors from 1994 to 2005. Power PC 601 through 604, G3, G4 and G5. Applications written for the Power PC processors need the application called Rosetta to run on Intel processors. This was part of the Operating System in 10.4 and 10.5 but was an optional install in 10.6. With 10.7 Lion Apple dropped all support for Power PC applications.

I checked and Im all good for the lion upgrade. Is there another way to port forward without the dropdown boxes in airport utilities? The tech department at Ibaby labs are unable to help me. I find it hard to believe Im the only guy having this issue.

That's strange: I have version 6.2 (620.33) Copyright 2001 - 2013 on my Lion Mac Mini...
Oh, I see: "...right now I am running Snow Leopard..." Still strange for SL to have a later version of AU.
So I thought I would remote screen share over to my ex-wife's (it's OK, she needs me to IT her Mac...) and up and running is HER AIPORT UTILITY... You're next stop: THE TWILIGHT ZONE!!!
Anyway, she has the same version number as I do and she has an Airport Extreme, but I am starting to see your problem looking at her setting after selecting her Airport Extreme and clicking EDIT.
Take a look at this article and see if it tell you anything helpful and I will be back to you on this...
