Hi, I have set up an ICS on a high speed cable connection on a Windows 2000 machine... it works but the problem is that browsing on client machines (W2k, WXP) is VERY slow and in about 30% of tries it fails... pinging to external hosts and DNS works as it should....

any ideas?

thanks,
Darko

Is the internal network slow as well??? What type of Network cards are you using?? If they are 3com network cards then this may be the problem.

Hi and thanks for the answer... no, the internal network works as it should.... I'm using different types of NICs (sis900 and rtl8139 on ICS host)..

I found an article that mentions making sure NetBeui is removed as it can slow ICS down.
If you run a ping window from the client PC's with the -t switch - IE..  ping 192.168.0.1 -t do you loss any pings??? leave it run for a few minutes - Iwould minimize it and surf a little and then go back and scroll through the ping window and see if it fails while you were surfing.

If you could post the results -- I just want to make sure there isn't a connection issue. You may have done the extended ping test so I appoligize if you have. Just want to start at the beginning and not assume anyhing :)

Hi,
I have removed NetBeui... Ping replies are always below 1 milisecond and there is no packet loss...

thanks,

Are there any events in the event log?
Try upgrading the drivers for the Network cards if you haven't done so already.

You had mentioned it was slow on the Clients I am assuming you can surf OK from the ICS server itself.
