dameware error with new router

I just bought a new, faster router lynksys wireless-N gigabit wrt310n and I can no longer connect to my office. My previous home router was a lynksyswireless-g wrt56g.

the router configurations are almost idenditical though I realize the new router is a slightly different technology. I have a static ip address at home and have tried on both windows xp and windows 7 without success.

Should i have an additional setting for the new router to work? any suggestions to get the new router working?

it turns out it was my ISP. They were caching the mac address of the old router. Once they emptied the cache it all worked fine.

what do you mean you can't connect to your office? are you trying to connect through a vpn?

its probably issues with port forwarding or similar having not been configured on the new router. if you still have the old one, i'd check those pages out!

hi,
>>what do you mean you can't connect to your office? are you trying to connect through a vpn?
dameware is RDP software and there is no VPN created

>>its probably issues with port forwarding or similar having not been configured on the new router. if you still have the old one, i'd check those pages out!
As I mentioned they are very similar and yes I do have access to both routers still. I'll post a couple of screen shots. might help

Match you Applications & Gaming tabs from the old router onto the new router.  That should help at least.

on the previous router a had no settings in Applications & Gaming tabs.
I just tried adding a setting but no go yet...might be on the right track though. Have a look at the screenshot and let me know what you think.
Dameware port is 6129
