Re: remote desktop connection
There is a possibility that there is a firewall on the modem too, specially if you have DSL on one end or both. make sure that the necessary ports allowed and restrictions are tweaked on both ends to allow the connection to pass through.

there is another part you will need to check. if you did everything for setting the ports on your router. you might not have opened the ports on your firewall in your computer. Under control panel in your computer. go to windows firewall, then exceptions tab and you will see remote assistance and remote desktop. check those on both computer.
Hope that works for you
Can you describe your setup in a little more detail, please? What OS's are on your computers, what firewall and Anti-virus programs are on the computers, and especially did you change anything else at about the same time that this problem started?
The easiest way to determine if a firewall is the problem is to turn the firewall completely off and see if the problem goes away. If it does, you then know that you need to configure that firewall so that it will work properly in your environment. If I were to venture a guess (which could be totally wrong), a firewall on your computers (like one that is installed as part of a Norton/Symantec program, for example, even if the program isn't labeled as a firewall) is in conflict with the router's firewall.
Please let me know if this helps and good luck!
