remote desktop issues.

Hey folks.
I'm hope you guy/girls can help me with an issue I'm having with remote desktop.
I'm trying to set up and so far i've:
*given my pc a static ip on the lan
*Set up my router (netgear DG834G, it's actually a dsl modem/router)
I added the service (port 3389, tcp and udp)
I set up the router firewall to accept incoming
I went to the Windows 7 remote desktop properties and
checked allow connections.
I used to find out the router IP. I typed the ip in remote desktop with the :3389 at the end and no luck. I though it might be windows firewall so I gace permissions to remote desktop. That didnt work either. I ended up shutting down remote desktop all together.
I think it might be an issue with Microsoft Security essentials but i'm not sure how to configure that.
Am i missing something here?
Please help!
