Are there any known issues with Remote Desktop and Netgear routers?

I have RA running on my machine using a Linksys router, with port 3389
forwarded to one of my machines and it works perfectly.

I go to another site and set it up exactly the same, Terminal Services
running, port 3389 forwarded to one of the machine, Windows Firewall
configured to allow RA connections and it refuses to connect. This office
is using a Netgear router.

I also use WIN-VNC and it too refuses to connect at the office, when it
works perfectly at my house.

Sounds to me like the Netgear router for what ever reason doesn't understand
port forwarding? or?

Any suggestions appreciated. Replacing the router with a Linksys is an
acceptable suggestion.
