Network , some computers slow and some computers fast on same switch

To make this basic as possible.

I have two XP computers on one switch.
They are on .100 subnet

When I ping a machine on the .110 subnet one pc gets <1ms and the other pc gets 50 ms.


I have concluded it has something to do with the pc because I swapped ports and get the same results multiple times.

I need suggestions on how to test why one machine is fast and the other machine is slow.

They have the same gateway so they are using the same routes. (which works for one.)

Thanks Larry

it is a giga switch ? maybe you have different nics one at 100mbps and the other with 1000. Please be more specific, not all nics are the same and that affects the speed on the network

Just as a check, make sure that there isn't an entry in the network properties for TCP/IPV6 support. If there is, make sure it is not checked.

Control panel>network connections
right-click network connection and select properties

50ms is really slow for pinging locally.  Even at 100mbps you should get around 1ms.   There is definitely something up with that second PC.

I would first check your TCP/IP settings.  As flubbster suggested make sure you uncheck IPV6 support, as that can sometimes slow it down.

Try resetting your TCP settings on the second PC.


Manual Method Directions
If this doesn't resolve it, I would try booting into safe mode with networking enabled (press f8 when starting the computer).  Then try pinging and see your results.

If the results are good, in safe mode, then you have some sort of software starting up at startup that is conflicting with your network speeds (possible software firewall).

If it is still slow in safe mode, then I would look at your NIC as possible being defective.

It was the router, once it was reset things worked properly.
