Ive seen this on two networks where the Domain controller is NT 4. When I put a 2000 pro machine on the LAN it takes about 30 seconds to populate a list of files using either windows explorer or word etc. Windows 98 takes 2 seconds max. The PC has 512Mb RAM and a P4 2.4Ghz CPU with a fast ethernet card. The Domain is running WINS and both the 2000 Pro PC and the Server are Wins clients. If I ping the PC from the server and vise verser the name resolves instantly.I have installed NetBEUI and changed the binding order to put NetBEUI above TCP/IP. The additional overhead would most likely increase the problem but I'm clutching at straws a bit. Any ideas... beleive me though its got nothing to do with service packs patches and viruses. Nothing on the M$ KB either.
