Hi, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction:
My WebSurfer is running on generic ISA HDD controller and Intel Pro/100+ Management NIC. Running 98lite (SE sleek interface)
I can see the other computers on my network, but when I try to access files, the process times out. I also get timeouts when browsing network directories. Sometimes I can transfer a small (<30K) file successfully.
The strange thing is that if I network the Websurfer using my Linksys 10/100 USB NIC, everything is accessible; no timeouts.
The stranger thing is that I am able to browse the web (using Internet Connection Sharing) while using the "problem" Intel NIC. I can download large files with no problem.
It's almost as if network transfers over a certain speed (i.e. 12Mbit for USB Nic, or 1.5Mbit for ADSL over ICS) cause the timeouts.
I know lots of you are using PCI 10/100 cards in your Websurfers; is anyone else having problems?
