Unequal network transfer speeds

  chub_tor 09:24 12 Aug 2004

I have two desktop PC's networked together with a US Robotics 9003 router. Both machines have 10/100T Ethernet cards. Machine 1 has Win XP and machine 2 Win Me.
If I open My Nework Places on Machine 1 and View Workgroup Computers then doubleclick on Machine 2 to see the shared files and printer it takes ages to find them.
If I repeat the procedure on Machine 2 and look at Machine 1 files it does it instantaneously.
The effect is similar when printing. Going from the Win XP to the Win Me machine is horribly slow, going from Win Me to Win XP is incredibly fast.
Any ideas anyone?
