hi experts,

 I have a small network "workgroup" of 4 computers and they run a program where the database is host on a server. on 2 of the computers the program works great but on one it stops responding and it takes minutes to come back and respond. Even if i map to that shared forder and try to create a new folder it stops responding and then 2 to 3 minutes later it works and the new folder is there. any suggestions?

use trace route and look for packet loss on the 1 machine that is having the issue.
