Good Morning

So basically I have a netgear DG834G V2 modem/router

I am running on a connected ethernet cable line thru to my modem while two other people are running wireless .They are about 10m-15 away.


So i've enable my two external harddrive to share across the network.They can both see my folder under "my network place" but it is slow and often it freezes their computer.

Copying data doesn't work.One of the friend tells that when she tried to copy a file it her Vista computer simply just stalls at the window which says "Calculating estimated time"

Are there anyway to increase the speed or suggestions on how to share my harddrive efficiently over the network?

What you have done is perfectly correct and normal. I dont use Vista so cannot comment if there is some option you have not checked, but I doubt it. I would first investigate network issues. Can you get the other two users to connect to the router via LAN cable rather than Wireless, does this fix the problem?

Have you tried with one of the other two machines connected by ethernet to see if the problem is still there?

Actuually i left the part where if I access her vista laptop from my modem/router it goes in and loads things quite fast but not vice versa.

I am connected to a direct link and they are using wireless

But as we have both said now, if you both are connected via cable (no wireless leg) then what happens.
