We've just installed new fast win2k machines to our university network but accessing the network neighbourhood etc takes ages...the prehistoric win98 machines next to them are much much quicker - has anyone come accross this problem before -

The network cards are of equivalent specification - and I think they're set up right so why does this happen.

What network protocols are installed? If there are extra ones on the client that do not need to be there, that will slow them down.

I have all the appropriate clients and protocols - identicle infact on the adjacent machine...and yet the win2K machine is so much slower

Any ideas?

I think the servers run Unix but I can't be too sure..by the way the clients are microsoft networks, novell netware and the protocols are netbeui, ipx and tcpip

Does this help
