Windows 7: RDP not working with new wireless adapter...

RDP not working with new wireless adapter...

I recently purchased a Tenda W311U wireless adapter for a machine in a second room. Plugged it in, Windows 7 loaded the drivers and it was good to go. I set it up to be an RDP server, was able to connect to it without issue. The only problem I had with the Tenda adapter was the range & power, so I ended up replacing the Tenda with a TP-Link TL-WN722N.

I downloaded the latest driver for the TP-Link adapter, installed it, and was able to connect to my DSL router, and to the internet. Connection solid, good speeds. The only problem is, with the TP-Link adapter, I cannot connect to this machine using RDP. Everything else seems fine. Is there something in the TP-Link driver that would kill RDP? Any other ideas on what might be causing this?

When I plug the Tenda adapter back in, I can again connect to this machine with RDP, no problem. I'm stumped. Thanks in advance for any suggestions, I've done a lot of googling and haven't found any clear solutions.

Nevermind...I'm a tool. The new wireless adapter had a different IP address, so I needed to re-apply the port forwarding rule to the new IP, in the router settings. Working now, woot! Thanks to all who peeked at my post.
