I take it all your other port forwards work? For example, you can access the web server on port 80 from the outside world.
Anyway, some ISPs block port 8080 so you might want to check that this is not the case. It's difficult to see what else you can be doing wrong as long as you have a process running on 192.168.1.148 listening on port 8080. You are sure that is so? Have you tested access from within your network?
If the web server works when you access it from within the network, using the internal address, but not when accessing it from outside the network, using your router's external address then the only sensible option is that your ISP is blocking those ports inbound to prevent you running servers.
But, as Sunius says, it very much depends upon how you are doing the testing.
Could you connect your second PC to the router through "Internet" port (as if the cable from your second PC would be the Internet cable). Then, try connecting to the first PC ports that you have forwarded.
ok so basicly im connecting my pc to the router where the internet from the modem would go.. and trying to connect to the proxy server with the port that is suppose to be forwarded? will post results when i get home in about 45 mins
edit: i tried the way i understood and could not get it to work but idk if i did it right..
