I have set up a server , installed per user CAL's , there are 5 computers that need to connect to the server via remote desktop. Users OS range from , Windows xp sp2, sp3 to windows 7. Problem is that not all but some users experience loss of connections. I have tried a ping command from the server to the client pc, when a connection is lost a 2 to 5 packets time out at that moment. I have changed the router the problem still occurs. There is a dlink des1008d switch also which i doubt is the problem. Most computers using windows xp have Broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet , network adapters. I cant seem to find where the problem resides. I have changed a few settings in the group policy of the server. Like KeepAlive, enabled the 20 reconnections. etc. Using the resource monitor I have noticed that some lan computers when using remote dekstop can reach up to 100ms latency is this normal? Can someone point me in the right direction of where the problem might be?
