A few network things..



I've just setup a network and on the client PC I'm getting 10-15 more ping then I did without the network, also for surfing the web I need to click enter a few times for the site to load.
I understand that the network will take some of my connection speed up but I have mates who run 3 or 4 people on their network and they all get the same ping (with or without) the network up.

p.s both PC's running XP and sharing a 512k ADSL.


Have you got 10/100Mb network cards ?

is your network a fast ethernet ?

If you are using ICS, doing things on the gateway PC will slow things down. Like playing games or something. This will take some processor time away from the ICS routing. That may increase your ping times

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
