hi, I'm new to this board.... I've got a slight problem with my home network. I've got a Windows 2003 Server, setup as a domain controller with DNS server setup. I have one workstation, running Windows XP Pro. I recently bought a US Robotics Broadband router so that I could share my NTL broadband connection between the 2 PCs without needing both PCs on (therefore ICS would be no good to me). Anyway, browsing the web (WAN) from both PCs is perfectly fine... no problems... it's as fast as it shoudl be. The problem lies in the LAN. Copying from one machine to the other is unbelievably slow. It can take up to 5 minutes to copy around 35megabytes of information. Does anyone have any ideas of what I should be looking for? Also, if I browse to the workstation from the server using the workstations name (eg workstation1) it works fine and I can access it's shares and drives etc (although I have the slow problem I mentioned above), but if use the workstations IP address (eg 192.168.123.2) it prompts me for a password, and whether I put in a domain password (Administrator) or a local user name/password that exists on the workstation, I cannot get access at all. It just says login failed. Any ideas? If you need more info, just ask. Thanks in advance.
