Newbie here who just joined. Trying to find some answers. I have a Linksys BEFSR41 wired router. I have 3 PCs hooked up to the router. I have a DSL service that gives me the standard 384Kb/s download speed. 2 of the PCs are running WinXP. 1 is running Win98. I'm having Internet access speed problems from the Win98 *if* I go thru the router. The other problem is that if I want to copy/move large files from a WinXP to the Win98 thru Microsoft's Network Neighborhood, I time out. Not surprisingly, I can copy/move large files if I'm copying/moving from the Win98 to one of the WinXPs without any problem. I did some troubleshooting. I accessed the website www.speakeasy.net/speedtest to test my Internet access speed. From a WinXP thru the router (to Dallas), I get 323Kb/s download & 316Kb/s upload speed. From a WinXP directly thru the DSL modem (without going thru the router), I get 327Kb/s & 316Kb/s respectively. From the Win98 directly thru the DSL modem, 321Kb/s and 312Kb/s. From the Win98 thru the router, the speedtest times out. If I visit websites on the WinXP, I have no problems whether they go thru the router or not. If I visit websites on the Win98 and it's on the router, the download times out. I've tried this with Netscape, IE, and Firefox. Browsers aren't the problem. If I connect the Win98 directly to the DSL modem, I have no problems downloading websites. It's just the router that's the variable. Since the problem "goes away" when I'm not connected to the router, I don't think it's a NIC card or CAT-5 cable problem. I've also tried connecting the Win98 to the different ports on the router but the problem still exists. I think I'm doing something wrong wrt configuration of the router for the Win98. Is there some configuration I have to set for a Win98 host? Has anybody else seen this? I've tried searching for this topic but couldn't find anything useful.
