Wireless LAN veeerry slow, even PING takes ages
Posted on 2004-11-08
I am setting up a wireless connection between my Win2K desktop and my WinXP notebook. The desktop is connected to internet via a DSL modem on an internal ethenet card. This works fine. For the WLAN it has a wireless USB adapter. The notebook has a built-in wireless adapter. I am setting up a peer-to-peer connection between the desktop and the notebook.
Both computers can see eachother, after a while, but the connection is extremely slow. Although on both computers signal strength and quality is "high" and "excellent", even pinging is very slow. 1-2 out of 4 ping attempts time out, successful attempts have an average response time of about 500 ms or more.
For the moment I don't have any encryption or security enabled (until things speed up).
