Hi,

Here's a tricky one for you guys to get to the bottom of.

I use Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection from work on my laptop to control my PC at home and I have no problems.  However, when I try to do this over my LAN at home to control my PC in the office from the laptop in the living room I keep getting the blue screen of death after a few minutes.

I used to be able to connect over the LAN fine with no problems and the only thing that I can think of which has changed is that I've added a Wireless PCI card to my desktop (TP-LINK 11b/g Wireless Adapter), could this be the cause of the problems?  If not then any other ideas and how can I stop this from happening?

Yes, that could DEFINITELY be the change that is causing these blue screens.

I had this IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO blue screen problem before, so I did some research into it.

Things to try:

1.) Change the PCI slot that the wireless card is in.

2.) Change the wireless card

In my case, it was just a regular NIC, but same premise.

I had to change to a different NIC... and after I did that, I never had a blue screen again.
