"The ManagementOptions.Timeout property is intended for WMI semi-sync
operations. In particular, the ConnectionOption.Timeout property is not used
to control the timeout for a WMI connection. This is because the underlying
WMI COM API doesn't support specifying a timeout value. The timeout value is
default to the value DCOM specifies (usually 60secs). You can adjust this
value via dcomcnfg.exe. " Andy Cheung

then you could try n connect to the remote pc..
Run dcomcnfg.exe-> Go to mycomputer properties -> options-> tansaction timeout..
