I have 2 desktop both using Windows 7 Premium, when i create a local network to share files / documents it is extremely slow to open the document or save a document to the share host PC.

I have given the permissions on the host PC for full access to the files and documents. Not sure what i am missing here to speed up the actual opening and saving of files on the host PC.
This does not affect the host PC speed, when looking up the folder and working on a document.
looking for suggestion on what can be the problem or how to resolve the speed issue.

Check the speed of your network link over your workgroup. DNS settings could also play a part here, im guessing you'll be getting your DNS settings via your router, re-boot that and also get the latest drivers for your network cards (all PC's)

hope that point you in the right direction

Hi Danny,
These are both brand new PC and the Router is also new. I will try to reboot router to see if it requires a reset. but i was wondering if this issue was due to the version of Windows 7 ?
The last time is seen this type of slow response was due to remote access, which is not the case here since both PC are behind same router and only sitting 3 feet from each other.

Sometimes the PC's will ship without the latest drivers installed, they may have been in carriage when an update was released or sitting in a warehouse somewhere.. its definitely worth checking and its one thing to rule out. Another thing to try would be to map a drive to the share via IP address rather than DNS name, that will tell you for sure whether its a DNS problem or not. Its always worth a re-boot of the router if thats where its getting its settings from :)

hello Danny
i will set static address for each PC and re-do a mapping and see if that helps.
