    You might be connecting to the router to an ip outside of the range you have forwarded? set up the ports for a specific IP/IP range, set up Windows 7 to assign a static network IP to your machine. Hope this will help.

    • In the page that comes up, search for Port Forwarding.
    • Then add following data:
      • Name: Give it a unique name like Remote Desktop
      • External Port: 3389
      • Internal Port: 3389
      • Destination IP address/server: Enter the IP address of the computer as defined in step 1 (e.g.
