Vista is slow accessing network shares

Posted: 02-24-2008, 01:26 AM
I support about 200 XP users and, now, about 8 Vista Business users on our
2003 AD network. 100% of the Vista clients are unacceptably slow
accessing/copying/moving files from shares on the network. Even opening a
network drive pauses for 30 secs. to as much as 2 minutes to populate the
window with the file and folder names, whereas this is instant with XP
clients.

HELP!

Do all Vista computers have the same anti virus software. If yes, that could
be the problem. Try disable one for test. Or check this search result.

No, all but 2 are running Kaspersky Ent. 6.x, which is a security suite, not
just anti-virus. I'll try this suggestion, though.

Via google, I came up with these suggestions, some of which worked for some
people:

Disable IPV6
Disable offline files (on by default)
Run this as an admin on client: net localgroup "Administrators" "Local
Service" /add
Disable differental compression on the client
Disable auto-tuning

I'll start with the security software then try some or all of the above when
I get a chance. Thanks for taking time to reply.

Are you still having the problem? I am having the same problem. How did you
fix the problem? I have tried lots of different things posted on the
internet but to no avail.

I found the following that had fixed the problem for others and was able to
get the problem fixed. I'm not sure which solved the problem. I just did them
all, rebooted, and it was fixed:

Open Control Panel from the Start menu and type Offline in the Control Panel
search box. Click on the green Offline Files link and click the disable
button.

Disabling Remote Differential Compression. To do this, open Control
Panel>Add Remove Programs>Turn off Windows features, uncheck Remote
Differential Compression.

Disable auto tuning

Disable IPv6

from run: type: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

Vista is slow accessing network shares
Posted: 09-29-2008, 09:31 PM

I am running Vista business at work, on a HP laptop. I am experiencing a
major problem accessing files on network drives. It takes forever to
open a file from the domain's network drive, or somethings it just hangs
there (such as I open an excel file, it will just show as "Not
Responding"). Surfing the web is very fast, so not sure what's wrong
with the network on my computer.

I did these already as someone suggested:
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
Disable IPv6
Disabling Remote Differential Compression

but wouldn't help at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After wasting so much time installing Vista SP1 and hotfixes, whic
totally have no help at all to the problem, I finally found the righ
solution.

To those who had the same problem, try changing your network adapte
from 100mbps full duplex (mine is default originally) to Auto instead
That solved the slow access problem right the way.

This setting should be changed under the device properties via Devic
manager.
1) Right click on "Computer" under the start menu and selec
"Properties".
2) Under the "Hardware" tab, Select and open "Device manager"
3) Click the plus sign next to "Network Adapters"
4) Right click on your NIC and goto Properties
5) Click on the "Configure" button. Choose the Advanced tab, and loo
for an item that mentions "Duplex & Link speed". Change it to "Auto"
