Hello, I have two computers in a workgroup setting. They are connected through a broadband router. The connection between the two computers used to be very fast but not any more. It has become very very slow.
As far as the internet connection is concerned, it is still pretty fast and ok. I checked the hard disks (they do not need defragmentation), checked the firwalls (they are not blocking anything between the two computers), also there is no other application that would slow them (because individually they both are running perfect).
Its only when I try to copy a relatively big folder from one computer to another, it takes for ever (it wasn't the case before).
Could somebody pls help with this problem. Also how to check if nothing is wrong with the ethernet card (its a regular 10/100 Mbps) or if its anything else?
thanks in advance for the help.
