Re: Network issue
Thanks for the reply. Sorry if I didn't make myself clear, but as I stated
in the original post, it, the lan-server is an external drive enclosure with
a 250 gig hard drive.
I can see and write to the drive sometimes. When a file, that I click, opens
it's very slow ( like 2 or 3 minutes). Other time the system will freeze and
the only way to recover is to power off. I have the lan-server set up with a
static ip address as suggested in it's documentation.
Also, I'm not seeing this issue with xp or linux and I don't have a problem
vista and the xp or linux systems. My network hardware is a Trendnet
wired/wireless router and an 8 port linksys switch and the lan-server drive
is hooked into the router.
