Why is Windows 7 Network so slow?

Postby guest » Mon Nov 23, 2009 10:40 am

When I click on Network (used to be Network Places in XP), it taks 40-45 seconds before it finally shows my other computer in my workgroup. The other is running XP Pro. Going in the other direction, from XP to Win 7, there is no delay.

What is going on? Is there any way to fix this? It makes network browsing unusable.

I am not trying to use Homegroup, just a straight Workgroup setup.

I can access shares on the XP computer directly with no problem, it's just browsing that is so terribly slow.

Edit: I should have also mentioned my network connection is a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller. There is no indication of a problem in Device Manager.
