I have 2 win2k3 machines, networked with a Linksys 4 port router, and a single win98 machine. They can all see each other just fine, and in an attempt to get things going faster, I turned on the "guest" account on the 2nd win2k3 machine. (The first one is my main machine) That hasn't done any noticeable (aside from allow the

It takes it a good 1-2 minutes to find other networked computers in "My Network places" When the 2nd machine was just a simple 98, everything was very fast and speedy.

This is becoming a major concern to me.

Have you enabled Netbios over TCP/IP on the Win2k3 machines?

Step 1: Turn On NetBIOS over TCP/IP
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Network and Internet Connections.

Right-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.

On one of the Win2k3 systems, disable it from being browse master.
open regedit, search for MaintainServerList
Set to no vs auto

Do you have anything in any of the event logs that would indicate some other issues?

I think I found the problem.

I have 2 network cards in my computer, and it was giving an error of "two computers with the same name" on the network.

Disabling the one connection seems to have sped things up to what it was.


Do you know of any way I could have speedy networking with this connection active ( i use it to connect to my work VPN)
