Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router
This going to sound crazy and I'm unsure if it's even a Linksys issue. I have a work Compaq 8510p laptop running MS XP with MS Office '07 suite. Here's the deal: when I pull up a Word doc (or Excel doc) stored on my laptop HD when connected to my wireless router at home, it takes forever for the document to pull up. However, if I'm connected to the company VPNthen it loads up quickly - or if I'm not connected to the wireless router at all,it also pulls up quickly. Any idea why this would happen? Is it a router setting? Or is it possible it trying to sync with something at the office network?
A very challenging problem.
Can you try disabling auto network search? This could be done in your Control Panel/Folder Options/View tab. Pls verify that "Automatically search for network folders and printers" is unchecked.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
