    Hi,

    I have 2 computers, one running XP and one NT, both connected to broadband internet and I can run remote desktop to connect them via the internet (I use the NT machine to access the XP machine).

    However, when I put the XP machine on 802.11b wireless (it is a laptop), i can no longer connect to it via the NT using remote desktop...

    Any suggestions??

    Try disabling the wired nic and see if it works. It may be remote desktop is trying to use the old connection.
