    Angry Network is very slow...

    Hi all.

    I have been having this problem for ages, and don't know what to do about it, other then rebooting all the time.

    The network is CAT-5 type, TCP/IP all boxes set to obtain IP addresses etc from the broadband router, which works fine, however, when I try to send a DivX file to the mediaplayer box, the transfer starts, but goes exteremely slowly, with Windows saying it will take around 136 minutes to move the 530MB file...

    However, if I reboot, then try to send the file, it goes at full speed.
    This happens every single time, and I can always get the file to transfer at full network speed, if I reboot the machine I am sending the file from...

    Just wondering if there is anything I can do to stop this.

    Sounds like the page file is to small. Rebooting will clear the page file (virtual memory). Try increasing the page file.
