WinXP + ICS = Slow speeds? Any ideas?

By tomf ·
Greetings,
We currently have a client that is sharing a satillite connection to 1 other computer. The computer that is sharing the connection is a high end machine running Windows XP. The computers are connected using a crossover cable. The connection is shared using ICS. For some reason the speed is super fast on the main computer and about 40% slower on the other computer. The other computer is also a highend machine running windows XP. I tested the connection by replacing the 'other' computer with my laptop. The speed was slower on my laptop as well. I am measuring the speeds by use of two diff. bandwidth test websites. http://www.bandwidthplace.com and http://www.toast.net .

Ok, so now I download a light-weight proxy server http://www.pppindia.com . I then install it and disable ICS. The connection now shares perefectly, same speed on each computer.

Any ideas on why ICS was slower? Please advise. Thank you.

The routing itself as well as the firewall tends to make it slower. ICS on ME/98SE was also slower on the machine down the chain.

I had the similar issue, are both NICs' 10/100? Also you might want to check GroupPolicy(gpedit.msc) "local computer/admim.../network/QoS Pack...." enable the setting "Limit Reserve Bandwith".
