Why can't I "remote desktop" to PC behind a Netgear Switch?

By simspace ·
I have 2 PCs connected to my wireless router. Another line also runs from the router to a Netgear FS105 switch and behind that switch I have three more PCs.

I can remote desktop to the two PCs connected directly to the router, but I cannot remote desktop to the three PCs behind the switch.

Any idea's why? Is this even possible?

BTW... If I remove the switch and connect any one of the PCs directly to the router then I can remote desktop in.

Also, any PC behind the switch can remote in to the other PCs behind the switch.

So it seems the problem is going through the router then through the switch.

Please note that port forwarding seems to be set up properly on the router.
