RantRDC Weirdness Today Pin

RDC has basically become useless to me for a few of the servers I manage. Two I know are Azure VMs, the other is a customer's system so I'm not sure where it's hosted. Checking at the https://downdetector.com/status/windows-azure/[^] doesn't look encouraging.

Symptoms: RDC session starts loading and gets stuck. If I'm lucky enough to get to a desktop it is sluggish to completely unresponsive. I also find that my local drive is missing and that copy/paste is not always available...and when it has been, it's failed twice now to copy a little 10MB file...which reportedly will take over 30 minutes to copy. Confused | :confused:

I've checked my connection here, reset the cable modem and rebooted the PC to no avail. Sigh | :sigh:

The websites on one the servers with the problem all seem to be working OK so it's not a big deal, though it does keep me from doing work.

On a side note, as part of troubleshooting at Azure, I tried accessing the portal which required me to authenticate through the Authenticator app on my Android phone. The portal gives me a webpage with a number to enter into the Authenticator app. I do this...nothing...is something supposed to happen? Fail

Try the next method available, 'use a verification code': It shows a red error message with a link for error details which shows this:
Request Id: b6114a2e-09d3-4e92-bf64-7ca3a8194f00
Correlation Id: c586a8c8-d656-4ada-9cc4-57d988f1ec79
Timestamp: 2023-06-12T20:16:19.558Z

FAIL! How helpful! OK, there are 4 methods so I'll just keep going...
Next authentication method: a text to my cell phone. Is something supposed to happen? (10 minutes later, still nothing) FAIL!

There's one more method which is to call my cell phone. I'll let you know! Laugh | :laugh:

I've got work to do, but the machines are working against me today! The day is almost gone and I haven't written a line of code! WTF | :WTF: Mad | :mad:

Fixed!: Don't ask me how, but changing out a Ring doorbell caused the problem. The house doorbell/chime happens to be on the same circuit as the cable modem and wireless router. Yesterday I did cycle the power on the cable modem, but not the router. This morning I reset both and everything is back to normal.
