Remote Desktop Protocol not working through Fizz Router?

I have been using Fizz for a couple of months without out issues, but since the 2020 New Year have not been able to remote desktop to my work computer and another computer I support from a cabled computer. I was able to get in before, I do not use the standard port (3389) and remote firewalls forward the chosen port to proper computer. Both remote computers are fine. I also tested with a laptop and RDP did not connect with a cable or WiFi, but when I use my cellphone as a hotspot my laptop will connect just fine to the remote computers. It is just through the Fizz Router Hitron CODA-4680 that connection fails. (The remote computer can not be found, maybe it is turned off or not setup for Remote Desktop connects message).

All other websites and activity works as I expect, Speedtest shows 30 down and 10 up, router has minimal changes from the default settings and Firewall is set at Typical for IPv4 and 6

I solved the issue by resetting the factory defaults, and reprogramming the settings to reflect my Internal network needs. This time I made a backup of the settings from the admin page in case I have to do this again. Fingers crossed it is a single event. All working as expected now. Thanks
