Presuming you're running a consumer-grade router, like the Linksys WRT54G family, you go to the admin page (http[s]://192.168.1.1 (or 0.1)), and click-through the option tabs until you get port-forwarding (should be "Port Range Forward" under 'Applications & Gaming').

Enter the incoming port ('Start') and target port ('End') along with the protocol (if needed), and the target IP of the NAS.

Save your configs, and you're good to go.

A longer example is available here.
