connecting via rww to pc - windows 7 fresh install

SBS 2008.
I've upgraded one of our networked PCs from XP to Windows 7 Pro to test whether this will work effectively.
No problems with that.
But when I try accessing that PC through RWW it keeps freezing and disconnecting.

Before the upgrade it worked fine.

Not sure what to try.

I am guessing you have an SBS server and trying to access the workstation via the web correct?

The only thing that you might have missed was enabling Remote Desktop on the new Windows  7 computer because it is disabled by default. You can get to the settings by:

1. Right clicking on Computer and going to Properties
2. Change the Remote settings on the left
3. You have a few options that you can play with there

Let me know if that helps or if you already have those things enabled!

Remote Desktop is enabled.

It still disconnects after about 30 seconds.

I can't think of anything else that would be causing it outside of your firewall or Windows Firewall.

The fact that it connects and then disconnects is what makes it confusing.

I've realised what it is.
I updated the wireless adapter driver on the networked PC, and it made the connection really, really slow.
Once I was able to go in it was obvious.
Thanks anyway.

It is interesting that you only noticed the network slowness when using RDP. You think you would of noticed it while browsing the web or accessing file shares but if it was just a test machine it might not have been used for that.

I realised that the network access was slow when I worked on the machine locally. I then tried rolling back the driver, which worked.
