Sounds like problem caused by security software...uninstall your security software and then check.

Go to NIC properties and DISABLE "offload TCP Largesend and check if you can take remote session.

This applies to older version of windows but will work for windows 7.

Seems like this problem is caused due to Certificate


To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

 Start Registry Editor.

 Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermService\Parameters
 Under this registry subkey, delete the following values:
       Certificate
        X509 Certificate
        X509 Certificate ID

    Quit Registry Editor, and then restart.

Hi Man the key doesn't exist in windows 7 ?

ok, so the conclusion here is that the "D-Link DUB-E100 USB 2.0 Fast Ethernet Adapter" is not supported according to the Windows 7 HCL, therefore I must use the onboard NIC to make the RDP working again.
