peer to peer perform prob's 98/Me/2000 p

By andy.merritt ·
I have a new cilent who has approx 25 PC's with a mix of 98, Me and 2000Pro, two Cable Modems and a 98PC operating as a peer-to-peer server for a small work group. This work group is having performance probs, SW house suggests a dedicated 2000 server and all 10 PC upgraded to 2000Pro. This is not a problem with time, does any one have any short term answers please !!!!!

what type of performance problems are you experiencing - Internet-related, local file transfer, program execution?

Workgroups are generally 8-10 pc's, so it's about time for a domain.

Also, if you're using Netbeui, you may be killing your ntwk with broadcasts....

as well as #'s 1 & 2, how are you routing between the two cable modems? Or did you mean you've tried two different ones??

Having a mix of PC's should not be a problem, the issue becomes how they are designed to interconnect and route.

Also knowing that if the performance problem you are talking about deals with a Windows NT or 2000 machine getting onto the internet faster than a 98 or Me ... please remember.. NT & 2k are much better at networking (when set up correctly) than 98 ever was..

Because I have to monitor several devices from home.. I had to switch to 2000 to aleviate the momentary *hangs* I would get when one device failed to respond to telnet or any other networking function while working or connecting to still other devices.
