    Slow File Sharing over Wireless Connection?


    by sneferu ·

    XP Pro SP2 Laptop – Wireless (WEP 128bit key), excelent signal strengh – 54mps
    XP Home SP2 Desktop – Hardwire to 604T
    I have a DLink G604T wireless adsl router. Using DHCP from the G604T.

    Browsing the web is fine – both wired and wireless, incluing VPN access to my workplaces intranet.

    However when browsing shared files from the desktop, I get 30 second ‘lags’ – simply addressing the desktop via explorer EG \\destktop – it can take upto 30 secons to show a list of 3 network shared directories.

      This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

      It properly belongs in “Technical Q&A,” not in “Discussions.”

      Please re-post there.

      Thank you.

        Well, at least you’re saying ‘Thank you’ now. 😉

      I got questions:

      Did you make sure the ethernet cable that the desktop uses is in fair condition?
      If you do a ping test from desktop to DLink and desktop to laptop what kind of results do you get?
      Do you have the latest firmware for the dlink box?

      Good luck,
