+ 0 Votes check connection speed bigduck 7 years ago I too have a wireless router with excellent signal strength. But my conneetion speed runs the gambit from <1 mb to 54 mb to 104 mb. It is constantly in flux. Use your wireless network connection utility to monitor the actual speed of your connection and see if when you remote desktop if it does not dramatically decrease. I updated drivers and changed to a different wireless card to get mine to work.
