View Full Version : Slow Internet after LAN installed



30-10-2001, 03:03 PM
I recently installed a LAN at home.One PC is using Win98 the other WinMe but when it was up and running the internet on the PC running WinMe is lagging like crazy and pages take ages to load. I then took the NIC out of the PC and everything went back to normal. What is the problem? I have done this before and I never had problems with slow Internet. Do I need a faster Connection (I have Dial-up modem right now) any suggesttions.

How are your computers connecting to the Internet?

Are they both dialing in with their own modems or is one acting as a gateway for the other? In which case which is the gateway?

The PC running WinMe is the gateway but i haven't setup a proxy for the other one to use the internet. I just want to use the one using WinMe to use the internet for now until I figure out the proxy stuff.
