Browsing IE or Exchange email working fine.  I checked all VPN's are off, no AV installed.  
What else could that be?

Settings on a home router can cause this. Check the settings for RDP - depending on your home routers manufacturer.

what are you RDPing to? A server inside your network? Firewall settings can block it, or port settings on the server.

Check 3 things -

1. Check for IPv6, try disabling it
2. In options of remote desktop, advanced tab, change the server authentifications for : Connect and don't warn me
3. Just below, in connect from anywhere, Settings, select : Do not use an RD Gateway server

see if that fixes it

Interesting thing, just walked down the hall with a laptop, got into the corporate wireless, then went back and seems still working now. Both wired and wireless.  Some weird thing kicked in and seems working now.
