Slow Network Connection issue.

I have a windows xp workstation on a windows 2000 server network that is having issues with a Nas box recently installed on the network.  The connection speed seems very slow.  Other stations on the network are not experiencing the same problem.

The drive is mapped and security has been given to the user.  Windows xp firewall settings seem to be OK,  so I really can understand why this drive is running so slow.

Any idea of what things I can check that might resolve this speed issue?

Thanks,
Tom

You may need to NAS Box Network Setting. In NAS under the network card properties you have speed / Duplex setting. It gives problem if it is set to AUTO. You may change that auto setting to manual setting and check it.

Tried to change this setting and had problems all over the network connecting to the drive, so I changed it back to auto-negotiate and things are fine.  The slow access to the network drive at the single workstation seems to be specific to the workstation.  I do not think it has anything to do with cabling or the network card because all other areas of the network are accessable and working fine.

Also tried disabling the windows xp firewall.

Looking for some ideas of things  to look at in order to troubleshoot the problem.

Thanks.
