Problems connecting to host computer running Remote Desktop Connection

Hello... I frequently access my computer at the office running Win XP Pro using Remote Desktop. I connect from a computer running Windows 98. In the past I haven't had any problems whatsoever, but in the past few days when I try to run Remote Desktop it either "times out" before I can even log on, or it allows me to log on (very slowly) and the network runs slowly and I eventually get disconnected. This happens from 2 different locations (both trying to access the office computer), and I've checked my internet connection at the office and it is running up-to-speed and on my other computers. I haven't made any changes to any of the computers, I am running Zone Alarm on the host computer, but have not updated/changed any settings from before.

Please advise, thanks in advance.
