Windows 8 Slow RDP remote desktop over LAN

I have an HP dv7 laptop that was upgraded from windows 7 home to windows 8 pro.  The RDP connection to a server 2003 is sluggish.  There is a delay of about 1 second on keystrokes, mouse clicks, etc.  It is slow to establish the initial connection with the server as well.

I'm not sure if anyone has seen this out of Windows 8.  I have checked on updated drivers on HP's site but found nothing.  I've disabled the autotune but it didn't make any difference. I've tried using Cat cable - no change.  I've installed another RDP app and it's actually worse than the windows RDP.

At this point I may have a driver issue.  Any thoughts or ideas of what to try would be appreciated.

Hi.

You should update your NIC drivers if possible. Is this does not seem to change anything, please uninstall any security software you have that tries to protect your network (and often destroys stability) and restart and retry.
