I have an odd problem on my notebook (HP Pavilion dv7). My Internet connection seems OK for the most part. But lately I've been having trouble with Remote Desktop connections. While I can connect to remote computers, the connection is very flaky, and usually drops after a few seconds. Sometimes it'll successfully reconnect automatically, and sometimes not. But even after successful reconnection, it'll just drop again after a few seconds.
This appears to be independent of which RDP host I'm connecting to, and which network I'm connected to locally, whether wireless or wired.
Other remote control apps like TeamViewer and Ammyy seem to work fine.
