Slow network or not connectedLocked
I have eight Windows XP workstations connected to a ninth Windows XP workstation (acting as the server).
Today a yellow “!” appeared over the network icon in the system tray. The network was extremely slow on all eight machines. I changed the TCP/IP setting from automatic to static and assigned each machine an IP address.
The yellow “!” went away. Did I fix the problem or is it masked? What else can I do to solve the problem when I revert back to auto addressing?
