The connection works good some days and really bad the next. For example, Monday it disconnected once during an 8 hour period. On Tue, it disconnected about 9 times and Wed about 6 times. Every day is different. General internet use on both machines is perfect, I never have any issues.
My home and work PC's are connected to the internet via linksys routers.
I have researched some articles suggesting changing settings in the "Group Policy" setup. I did not feel comfortable without a second opinion.
I know there are other programs like www.logmein.com and www.realvnc.com that do the same thing, but since I already have RD setup, I'd prefer to keep it if the fix is relatively simple.
