Re: Network Security in Vista
I disabled Mcafee. Ran with no virus or frewall and it is the same.
I tried all the normal things I could think of, like virus-firewall issues,
I diabled the user acount security in Vista, I put in a range expander from
Linksys. It all worked very fast in XP using wpa security. Just very slow in
Vista unless I set evrything to wep, which is far less secure.
