Network very slooowwwww.

Postby jmstacey » Tue Nov 19, 2002 9:16 pm

I have a network between two computers running XP, but they are painfully slow. Both computers recognize eachother and I can browse the files but its painfuly slow (like dial-up only 50 times slower) It is impossible to transfer any files because its to slow.
I don't know why it, any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

Are you using old LAN cards that are not 10/100, but just 10(mbp/s)? The other thing I presume you have set a static IP address for both, but not set a DNS server address (don't - that can slow it down).

Both cards are 10/100 and are fairly new. I use a Linksys wireless access point router (model BEFW11S4 v.2)
Its really slow wether its wireless or hooked up directly.
I don't know where to start. :?
