Unexpected Network Error

by Ann777 In reply to Unexpected Network Error

After trying the same file copy btwn the two computers, I would then try between one and another. See if that works. If not, then look at the network adapter on that computer.

Make sure that device manager is not sharing the IRQ port with any other devices. Device manager does NOT have to show a conflict with your network adapters. If the nic is working properly at all levels, it should copy files btwn computers fine. When you start copying across the network and experiencing problems, then look at the nic and resources.

Sharing a nic (a resource intensive) device, with another resource intensive device (a sound card, a video card, etc.) IS NOT RECOMMENDED and it could give partial functionality problems such as you describe.
