Why does my network hang

By mjj4golf ·
I have a peer to peer using a hub. I share the drives on both computers and do the mapping.. etc. However, when I try to look at drive f: on #1(e.g. f: is the d drive on #2 computer) it is slow or never comes up and the task schedular shows it not responding. When I try to copy some files from one to another, I will get an error "Lan resource not available" The ethernet cards are netgear FA311 set to 10basetx and using an 3m office connect hub.
W98 SE being used. 256 m Ram on #1; 64m ramon #2.

Check the [Properties] of [Network Neighborhood] and ensure that you have [Client for Microsoft Networks] and [File & Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks] installed & enabled.

Goodluck!

Hi,

I suspect you've already set up the nic's properties as above suggestion - otherwise you'd not be able to make the connections at all.

I had a similar problem a while ago between a WinXP machine and a Win2K machine - where file copies would be unreasonably slow or hang.

In the end, I rebuilt the Win2K machine from scratch (for other reasons) and it was better.

Make sure the drivers for each nic are the most recent. I suspect mine were somehow corrupted on the Win2K machine.

Check the manufacturer's website for the most recent versions or check out...

Cheers,
