After recently switching modems to a Thomson ST780 I'm having a weird problem with Remote Desktop between my Vista laptop (guest) and XP desktop (host) over my home network.
Remote desktop is working fine over wired LAN. But when I try to connect the laptop via wireless something strange happens: the Remote Desktop connection opens a window as normal, but then just hangs with a blank, black window. After a minute or so an alert comes up saying it can't connect.
It's weird that the remote connection gets so far and then fails...
I checked that file sharing is working over WLAN, I can ping from each computer to the other over WLAN, and I have switched off all firewalls.
Now I'm stuck as to what to try next. Any insights or ideas would be welcome
