I have an Athlon 1000 and a P 166 MMX net worked with an 100/10 Mbits ethernet card with a cross over cable.
The only problem arise when I tried to access my p 166's file from my 1000 it takes something like 30 sec just to open a directory!!! I have used an modem tweak program before and I have tried to put the settings back on default, but no effect.....

hi Bill, you need to check the properties of each network card to ensure the
settings are the same on both . control panel, network
select the adaptor and click properties, advanced tab
depending on the card and driver will depend on the options ,for a simple x over
i would run full duplex ...
ok restart after changing anything and if no different
then we need to look at what
network protocol you are using.My own preference is TCP/IP , assign each a unique
IP address , say 192.168.1.1
and the other 192.168.1.2
make sure you have file and print sharing for microsoft networks as well , give the
workgroup the same name , and presto it should work !
One thing i found with older machines also (bit drastic, but it cured a heap of probs)
was to format and reinstall the OS on the older machine ,
guess it comes down to how patient you are . let me know if I can help further !
