Have you tried updating the routers firmware?  Or perhaps a different/new router?

Also came across this tidbit:

if you own your own router (you're not renting one from your ISP) and you don't like your firmware, then you can try an open source firmware such as Tomato or DD-WRT.  Just search for tomato firmware or dd-wrt firm.  In most cases they are superior to the manufacturer's default firmware.


Also, are you the only warframe player on your home network?

Saw another report of someone fixing this after port forwarding by reinstalling warframe.

One other thing to try is to turn off windows firewall.

Also found this.  Yay google.

I had the same problem. The ports were forwarded, UPnP enabled and everything was ok, but the game still gave me that "Stritct NAT"-warning. I noticed that many have gotten this issue solved by reinstalling the game so I decided to test something else. I started the WF launcher and clicked the small gear in the upper right corner and from that menu ran the defrag of the download cache. This cleared the issue for me.

Tried the reinstall too?  I'd try a firmware update / different firmware like the above at least before a new router and a fresh install of warframe after.

Think it boils down to the router at least from my experience with this a looooooooooong time ago and from what I've found in searches and such.
