Internet Speed Test
Please note if you are struggling to connect to Remote Desktop you can run a speed test tool which will help us diagnose issues.   Go to https://fast.com and the test will run automatically. If you have a speed lower than 5Mbps you may have trouble connecting. Turn off your router and restart and/or move closer to your wi-fi transmitter – then retest. If you continue to have issues please report via the links below.
