I have 4 computers, 2 Running XP Pro, 1 running XP home, and one on ME.  ALL can access eachother and the internet.  But the XP computers take forever to conncect to eachother and view shared files.  Is there anyway to speed this up.

I use a Linksys Router/Switch with DCHP

Disable the Internet Connection Firewall and Authentication for the network adapter.

1.  Click on the Wireless Connection Icon in the bottom left corner of the computer screen
2.  Click on Properties when the Card Status Dialog box opens
3.  Click on Advanced
4.  Under Internet Connection Firewall make sure the box is UN-checked
5.  Next, click on Authentication
6.  Uncheck the 'Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network'
7.  Click OK

I did your soluiton, and in the proccess did a full network reboot - all computers down brought them back online one at a time, as well as reset my switch. Not sure what fixed it but since your answer lead to the solution you get the points.
