    Post Slow Connection

    I have two computers setup on a crossover cable network.
    System 1 is Win2k, System 2 is Win98.

    They are both using Dlink 530TK adapters.

    System 2 can see and connect to System 1 very quickly with no problems.

    System 1 can see but is very slow to connect to System 2. After it finally connects it works ok.

    Any clue to help me with this problem?

    Thanks.

    check the network protocols and try to only use TCP/IP and no NetBeui crap...

    Nope, that didn't do it either.

    Here is a list of what protocols I have installed:

    Client for Microsoft Netorks
    File and Printer Sharing
    TCP/IP

    It didn't change a thing.

    Thanks.

    The answer to your question is a good example of Win2Ks' optimized TCP/IP.

    It may not seem evident but that is why System 2 has faster access to System 1s' faster TCP. The opposite happens when System 2s' slower TCP trying to access System 1. System 2 is slower and less optimized than system 1.

    Hmmm...sounds confusing but true.

    Thumbs up

    The reason being is that Win2K is better geared for network than Win98. Win98 is slower than Win2K as far networking.

    Is there anyway of fixing it?

    Microsoft (GOD) recommends you go Win2K all the way.

    Yeah, I just one of the machines Win2k. I'd would have upgraded the other machine but it won't work right.

    So I guess no one knows how to fix it. That's ok, I'll live with it.
