      Remote Management and desktop

      Hi,
      I am having problems connecting to router remotely and also connecting via remote desktop.

      I had a Netgear DG824M before the sky router so i copied in all the services and firewall rules.
      I have PnP turned off.
      The remote management is turn on still using port 8080.
      I use dyndns to update my ip address. It is now updated with the home sky ip address.
      I have rebooted the router.
      I have assigned my home pc with 192.168.0.2 as a reserved IP address/
      Do I have to do anything with the DMZ server?
      Basically all my port forwarding isn't working, i.e. remote desktop, webcamxp etc.

      Any ideas would be greatly welcome
      thanks

      There are people mentioning about flashing the firmware on your router with the one from the netgear site.. but i dont know about that..

      Think mine was a bit of a red herring. It could have been a couple of things. I was trying to remotely connect on my wireless laptop via a work vpn network. Also maybe it takes a day for the new ip address to filter through the system? Toady at work and can remote into the router and desktop. Hope you get yours sorted
