    I recently installed a remote desktop app on my iPhone and, though the app works perfectly, I have a problem when I disconnect - the wireless connection on my notebook stops working. I can't pull up my browser, my mail notifier, or even access the router. If I Disable/Enable the connection, it starts working again, but I'm not sure why it stops connecting in the first place. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? I really like being able to use RDP, but if it's going to kick my system off the network when I'm done, I don't know if it's worth it.

    I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 and Windows XP Media Center SP 3. I'm using Windows to manage my wireless connections, and the app I'm using is MochaSoft RDP Lite. Hopefully that's all the pertinent information.

    Update:

    Apparently this problem is also occurring when I switch user accounts on the laptop itself - regardless of any remote activity. I think this might be the underlying problem.
