I would check if you have the most used protocol (ie tcp/ip) on the top of your binding order, and if you are using a 10 mb hub to connect the pc's together You might try purchasing a 100mb only hub. I personally have seen GREAT improvements when Idid this on my network at home.

THE BINDING ORDER OF THE PROTOCOL IS THE SAME ON BOTH COMPUTER AND TCP/IP IS ON TOP AND THE HUB IS 10/100. WITH NO PROBLEM WITH CONNECTION OF MY CABLE MODEM, ( VERY FAST CONNECTION THUR THE INTERNET ON BOTH COMPUTER) I DID NOT SEE ANY PROBLEM WITH THE HUB OR THE NIC.

You obviously have your protocols identical, but bet you the Presidency it'll all work OK if you upgrade computer A to W98 - I've heard of this B4!

CHECK AND MAKE SURE THE NICS HAVE THE CORRECT DRIVERS INSTALLED. SOMETIMES AN NIC WILL WORK WITH OTHER DRIVERS BUT WILL NOT WORK AT ITS FULL POTENTIAL WITHOUT THE CORRECT BRAND NAME DRIVERS. I HAD AN PCMCIA NIC, WIN2K INSTALLED IT AS AN INTEL NIC ITWORKED OKAY BUT IT WAS VERY SLOW WHEN TRANSFERING A LOT OF DATA. WHEN I INSTALLED THE CORRECT D-LINK DRIVERS IT WORKING BRILLANTLY.

The right Drivers is installed, from the manufacturer cd. The transfer is not just slow is very slow, 2MB took me about two hours.

Are you using Internet Connection Sharing? If so it sounds like there is an error in the DNS or Gateway IP address. Try looking into a piece of software like All_Aboard or SyGate. This will provide you with a DHCP style server system, then you can set the client to get an IP address from the DHCP automatically. At that point you won't have to mess with the DNS and Gateway addresses on the client.

You should check the binding order of your protocols. Make sure that the most used protocol is at the top of the binding order.

Also you may want to change from using a hub to using a switch. The difference being that the maximum band that you get from a hub is the speed of the network divided by the number of ports. Where as a Switch will give you the maximum speed of the network on each connection. eg: a 10port 10base hub will give 1 mb per port while a switch of the same category will give 10mb per port.
