Home intranet file transfers slow to crawl and sometimes stop.
I hade 2 PCs connected by wire router/modem and set up as belonging to the same workgroup. Both run Win7 and have homegroup disabled. One PC has a static IP/DNS set as it seems more reliable when connecting to the internet whereas the other has auto IP/DNS. Quite often when doing file transfers between the computers the transfer will slow to a crawl and sometimes stop altogether. One of the PCs have been running the same installation of Win7 for some time whereas the other has had Win7 reinstalled a number of times due to internal (mobo cpu HDD etc) hardware changes. The issue however has persisted over all these builds. Could there be setup reasons why this would happen? I doubt if its a physical problem as sometimes it all works fine & sometimes it doesn't.
