This is a strange issue that has cropped up and noone seems to know the answer. I have set up my home computer in a DMZ using dhcp to assign the exernal ip address. And utalize Dyndns to host a few ftp servers as well as remote desktop. recently the remote computer has been encountering the limited or no conectivity error and this only happenes after i disconect remote desktop. after rebooting or repairing the connection I can remotely connect to the computer once and only once. if i close remote desktop for more than a minute or two the remote computer no longer accepts connections or even pings. when i get home and check the settings the wireless card is reading limited or no conectivity repairing the connection restores normal operation untill the next time i use remote desktop. so far i have gotten around this error by using a auto clicking program to initiate a repair 5 minutes after I disconect but this is a temporary solution and sometimes doesent work if i left a window open that prevents the program from clicking in the right area. i want a fix for this as it is driving me crazy and takes down my ftp servers for long periods of time every time i need to change a setting.

is there any way that you could have the target computer connected via ethernet instead of wireless? even if just for a test?

well i have narrowed the cause of this issue to dhcp i tried using a static ip and now it is working normally so now the question is why dhcp wont asign an ip unless someone is logged into the computer
