Hello Jim how are you today? How long have you been having this problem?
How far away is your laptop from the router?
Hello Jim I have accepted the request but it states there is a problem. Please ensure you are near your phone in case someone calls in an attempt to fix the problem. We can discuss this further in the mean time while we wait for this to be accepted.
When you say it is intermittent, is it fully connecting and working at some times, and then sometimes will disconnect? Or is it only partially working? Can you explain in more detail?
I am here. I will continue attempting to accept the remote desktop request but it may take a few minutes to work. Is this a home network you are connecting to?
OK are they both connecting to the same SSID? How far away is the cable modem or device you are using for it to connect?
OK it is a cable modem? Is the desktop plugged in with a wired connection?
Have you tried a wired connection on the laptop from the cable modem to see if this assists your situation?
I see that you requested a remote services offer for this issue -- More times than not, the issue with intermittent connection requires a new router. If the connection is intermittent when you are directly connected to the router then I would suggest that you contact your Internet Service Provider for a new router.
I have not heard back from you in a while -- If the issue is resolved, please rate our session as EXCELLENT, GOOD, or OK and press Submit so I am credited with helping you otherwise please reply back so we can continue with the issue.
Let me know if you are still available to further troubleshoot, for some reason the remote desktop session was not accepted. You may want to contact***@******.*** in an attempt to resolve what may be a billing issue. Regardless, we can continue troubleshooting here when you return.
