I am working from home and using my old HP notebook running Windows 10. I have my home gaming machine which has the nice keyboard, mouse and 2x 27" monitors so to not get stuck working on my 14" notebook display, I setup an RDP connection from the gaming machine to the notebook and it works really well.
Work sent me a new Lenovo i7 notebook with the latest Windows 10 on it, so I setup a new RDP connection to it and the connection is REALLY slow. Like I am now typing this post and have already written 12 words which have not yet appeared on the screen- and there they are now!?
At some stage, the whole thing is sooooo slow that I just have to get up off my study chair and walk over to the Lenovo and logon locally and it's really quick and responsive.
When I go back to my gaming machine and RDP to the Lenovo, initially it's OK but then it starts grinding to a halt again after about 5 minutes. I have Task Manager running on the Lenovo and it is showing 27% CPU, 77% memory, 1% SSD Disk 0 (c:), not much on the ethernet and the GPU 0 is at 9%. I've set the RDP settings on the gaming machine to the most minimal I can get so to ensure the network connection is quick. Talking of networks, both machines are on the same network, connected to a netgear JGS516 Prosafe gigabit switch.
I just cannot figger out what the issue is.
Windows on the Lenovo is:
: Intel64 Family 6 Model 142 Stepping 12 GenuineIntel ~1803 Mhz
BIOS Version: LENOVO N2WET26W (1.16 ), 21/01/2021
I've updated the BIOS, Windows is patched to the latest level.
