Default Remote Desktop Help

I am currently having problems accessing my home computers from work. This problem happened after I reimaged (Format, Reinstall, Image) both computers.
All of my computers have Windows Server 2003 SP1 Standard. I opened ports 3389 (Comp 1) and 3390 (Comp 2) and set up port-forwarding on my router, but I still cannot access my computer from the WAN. However, I can access them on the LAN.

Any hints?

Make sure your public IP address is still the same. You can request a static IP for a fee from most ISPs, but typically, they are assigned by DHCP, which will cause you problems trying to connect to them from anywhere but inside your network. If it was working fine before, and you're sure everything is correct, make sure your IP address didn't change.
