They are all Cat 5 wire connected. They are all extremely stable machines as well.

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.

how about Machine 1 to Machine 3?

have you tried Unchecking "Printers" in "Local devices and resources"?
