Windows 7: No Ping No Remote desktop

No Ping No Remote desktop

Hi, have a weird problem.. have a htpc downstairs with windows 7 32bit Pro and a linksys wmp300n pci card. Anyway my problem is this. I can not ping or remote desktop into that computer unless i reboot the machine. Once rebooted i am able to ping and remote desktop. But once i disconnect the remote desktop after about 10 min or so the computer becomes no longer ping able and remote desktop won't work of course. Now i though the computer was going to sleep so i set the computer for high performance and also set the wireless card to high performnce. but still the problem continues. I also went into wireless properties but the weird thing is there is NO power management tab. If i walk downstairs to access the computer it is on and the wireless is connected and i do have internet. the computer is not sleeping in any fashion it is always on but i won't be able to ping or remote into the computer until i reboot it.

Any help would be great cause i rely on remote desktop to manage that machine

Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?
Hi I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7. I would like to use remote desktop...
