Since the topic search engine is off line for now, I need to see if anyone can help me on this.
I use and create a lot of P2P networks. When teaching SOHO networking we create a 6 to 8 computer P2P network using Win 98. The problem is that some computers take 30 or more minutes to be seen on the network. Some of them you cannot even ping. I have tried TCP/IP, IPX, and NetBeui each individually and combined. I have set one PC as the "Browse Master and disabled all of the others and still no speed up. I have some 10Mb/s and some 10/100 NICs and a Kingston 10Mb hub (16 port). I have changed ethernet cable and NICs and ports. Any "Tweaks" or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
