Remote Desktop Connection Errors

I am trying to setup a RDC with a static IP for my PC so I can access it from work. I started messing around with my laptop and PC trying to Remote Access them from one to another locally before doing set up my router to do port forwarding. I noticed that none of my laptops in my house can connect to my PC for Remote Access but I can connect to any laptop from my pc. I don't know what's going on. I've changed the IP on my PC 4 times and still nothing. Hard reset on my router, but nothing.

To allow older OSs like XP to connect to Windows 7, the following option must be set on the Windows 7 side:

Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop.
