Timout error 258

In a command window, I'm using OSQL to login to a SQL Server Express 2005 database. However, it returns this error:
Shared Memory Provider: Timeout error [258]
Login timeout expired
Unable to complete login process due to delay in prelogin response

I reinstalled the .NET Framework, and SQL Server Express. I found a web page that referred to corrupted ODBC drivers so I repaired the MDAC installation. No luck.

I know the OSQL string I'm entering is correct - have used it numerous times on various computers.

Anyone have any thoughts?

I haven't tried installing Management Studio on this system. It's a client's computer. I'll give it a try and report back...

Was able to log onto the client's computer yesterday and tried installing Management Studio. No luck. Still getting the timeout error. Anyone have any other guesses?

this error messages is because of
connection attempt when server is not ready to process a new local connection, possibly due to overload,

I suspect that the timeout was the issue. I informed their IT guy of this and he said he adjusted the timeout and it's working. So thanks for the feedback.
