Slow network access not always due to Scheduled tasks check

Slow network access not always due to Scheduled tasks check

If you have very slow access to your network computers through "My network Places" and have already deleted the Registry entry calling for a check of Scheduled Tasks on the other network computers (documented elsewhere on this site) AND you have multiple network adaptors (i.e. a cable or DSL connection through one NIC and an internal network using a second NIC) check the following.

Right click on "My Network Places", go to properties. Right click on the NIC that your cable/DSL connects to, and chose properties. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and click on properties. Click on "advanced", go to "WINS" tab, and chose Disable NetBios over TCP/IP.

When you are back at your Network Connections page, right click on the Broadband selection, chose "properties" click on the networking tab. Again, chose TCP/IP, properties, advanced, WINS, and select "disable NetBios over TCP/IP"

Worked for me!

BTW, I don't use ICS (can never get it configured right) and instead use Sygate for my Connection Sharing, so I can't verify that with ICS netbios is enabled in the broadband connection and the modem NIC.The Wizard might catch it, but take a look just in case.

    worked for me! only works if the problem is occuring due to the dsl modem settings, try disabling scheduled tasks 1st (http://www.softwaretipsandtricks.com/windowsxp/articles/289/1/Speeding-Up-Share-Viewing) and also from my computer-->tools-->folder options-->veiw--> uncheck - automatically search for network folder and printers
