Slow when windows machines running
- I have unslung 3.17 installed and all is working well. The nslu2 is
hooked into my network via a D-link DI-624, which I have also had no
trouble with. There are three computers connected to the DI-624. Two
can run Linux or Windows XP and one runs only Windows XP.
The problem: When any of the windows boxes are on, the nslu2 becomes
extremely slow. Trying to work with telnet or ssh results in a
5-minute delay between typing and the commands showing up in the
terminal. The web servers (appWeb, thttpd) also slow to a crawl.
File transfers seem to work fine, though. I can have both dual-boot
machines on in linux, but the instant any one of the three is running
windows while another tries to use the nslu2, everything is slow. So
it doesn't seem to be any one machine's fault, but windows' fault.
The solution is to not run windows, but this is not always possible.
I don't see any flashing lights that would indicate heavy network
traffic when they're on, but it's possible that something odd is
happening that I can't analyze. I can't find a reference to this
problem anywhere. Thoughts, anyone?
