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.

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!
