Background: I have three computers at home. Two (XP and Windows 7) need to control a laptop (Windows 7 64bit) via RDC (over wifi). I can see the computer on the network (via Explorer).
Problem: When I connect to the laptop via RDC from either of my other computers it automatically authenticates me, shows the welcome screen briefly then goes all black. After a time it shows that the "Two computers couldn't be connected in the time allotted"
After that when i try to view the computer on the network, I get:
"Windows cannot access . Check the spelling of my name..."
And if try to use RDC again i get the "Remote desktop can't find the computer"
In the router it is no longer shown as an attached device
After about ten minutes i can then see the computer on the router and on the network (via Explorer), but still not RDC of course.
Note: This laptop is only three weeks old. It worked well for the first two weeks, but has been doing something for the last week. I have not installed anything, except for the Windows updates
Have tried: - Disabling bitmap caching - Setting the MTU size to something smaller (1400) - Disabling IP v6 and enabling Netbios over TCP
