This site offers remote port scan service.
Then choose Common Ports
You should see what ports your router are open.
There are 3 status
1) open - attacker can see what service are open Ex. 80 = http , 21 = ftp, 23 = telnet.
2) closed - closed means that port is closed but your router still responds to the port scanner which is not good enough.
3) stealth - your router does not respond to the port scanner.
