Small office network...less than 10 machines. One Dell Gigabit switch. Server with Windows Server 2003. One machine on our network has a delay when connecting to a shared drive on the server. The hourglass will pop up for about a second when connecting. The machine is a fairly high end Dell Optiplex which is only about 6 months old. We have others which are setup identically that have absolutely no problems. I'm going to get a cable to connect directly to the switch and see if maybe there's a wiring problem. It's probably going to be about 60' so I don't have one on hand. What else can I look into which may be causing the problem? I greatly apreciate any help. John Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
