i have real probs with xp and netwokring. On my home netwokr i have my computer (xp pro) and i have a windows me and windows 98 computers.

THey can all access the xp computer very quickly. But when i try and access there computers there is a huge delay before i see any of their shared files and when i clcik on them it takes another age befrer i see anything.

I have seen other posts about slow networking and tryed what they say. But nothing helps.

Any one sugest anything elce?


Have you enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP on all machines?

As much as I hate to suggest it, on a small 3 PC LAN NetBEUI may be the best protocol choice. You can install it on your XP box from the CD valueadd\msft\net\netbeui
To enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on your XP computer, Local Area Connection Properties, TCP/IP properties, Advanced, WINS tab.

On 98/ME, TCP/IP properties, NetBIOS tab.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
