Hmmmmmm... Thats strange, I assumed you were referring to remote desktop access function on the computer seeing as your netopia router shouldn't block remote access to the pc itself.

Here is a guide on how to enable remote access on the router but this is only for remote admistration to the router itself so I don't know if this is maybe what you are looking for.

What you can try as well is going into expert mode when you log on to your router and then selecting remote access and configuring it there.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

To have acces through the router you must forward the RDC ( remote desktop connection ) port witch is 3389, just go in router configuration at port forwarding section, enter port 3389 and your internal ip adress. This should work.
