Slooooow Network Drive Mapping

  1. ** Late Breaking News: Began Using NETWORK MAGIC and all problems are resolved! Thank you CISCO!!

    Although I CAN map to other Shared PC's/Drives across my network, often when I use the 'browse' feature and pop open the list of available machines then click on a specific PC it takes 1-2 minutes for it to come back with the list of shares. Anyone run into this and have any clues what the @#$% is causing it?

    Windows/XP SP2
    Wired/wireless router (doesn't make any diff which one I use)
    No firewalls in the way
    TCP/IP *and* NetBEUI (just to be safe!)

    If I just type in the IP of the machine, it maps quickly, i.e., 192.168.1.54/myshare

    Thanks

    are you sure re the firewalls? all systems need to enable file/print sharing.

    opening My Network Places will locate all available shares.
    how long does that take?
