DLink Disabled my Remote Desktop Connection

Earlier today i was using remote desktop connection on my laptop to connect to my computer (through Wireless) and it was working ok. But after i resetted my router to factory settings my router, Dlink 624S (DI-624S) my laptop started getting messages such as cannot find computer etc. when my computer was open. My computer also allows remote desktop connection.
Can anybody suggest any solutions to get my laptop to recognise that my computer is on?

Hello Baka,

Make sure that you enabled the port forward to the Remote Desktop port, usually 3389.

Could you be MAC blocked? Try hard-wiring in.
