1.     Machine 1 to Machine 2 errors after 10-15 seconds consistently -> via wireless NIC of Machine 1?

clear up any doubt with connectivity, open up a command prompt and "ping machine2 -t" then RDP into it. Soon as your RDP drops check the ping for a timeout and report back.

Good Idea. I tried it and it pings through no problem though, no connection lost even when the error comes up.
