I saw this question couple of times already, but none of the solutions provided works with me. It is really strange - becouse untill yersterday the transfer speed was OK
Two weeks ago I have installed a 2 computer network (both with xp) conected via a USRobotics router.
File Sharing installed, Netbios over tcp/ip enabled on both computers, no firewall.
UNTILL yesterday the transfer speed was FINE. Suddenlly , I get some huge transfer delays - but I did'n made any modification/instalation on the PC's. The only thing that I have installed is a emule (edonkey) client.
Both PC's are connected at 100 MB/s

What the hell could be the problem ?
Many thanks,
