Network problems in XP
Posted on 2002-03-03
I just installed windows xp pro on a computer that previously had windows 98. I formatted the hard drive before installing XP.
For some reason whenever I try to download any file type off the internet other than a text file, it downloads extremely slow or it doesn't download at all. Like if I download a 1MB text or html file, it downloads at about 600kbps, and if I download a program or something it downloads at like 3kbps.
I have a cable modem, which is shared by a router and a 5-port hub. I have a total of three computers connected to the hub, and the other two have no problems downloading any files.
Another problem I have is, the computers can see each other in network neighoborhood, but whenever I try to open the computer's listing in network neighoborhood, I get prompted for a login and password when I have none set (that I know of).
