I've connected my two computers through a switch. I've also plugged in internet through the same switch. Everything i working fine. I've got internet working on both computers and I can connect to one computer through the other. One thing is not working well though. The switch and the network-cards in the computers are all 10/100Mbps still I can't get any decent speed between the computers. When I send something from one computer to the other I can basicly get two speeds. Either it transfers at around 3500kb/s or it transfers around 500kb/s. So when I transfer something big I get 3500kb/s for a while and then it switches to 500kb/s, and then back to 3500kb/s and so on. It continues about 15 minutes on each speed. Why is this?

Also I can't set up a network between the two computers in XP. I set up a "Home or office network" but it seems like the two computers can't find themselves trough XP. This is a minor problem though but maybe it's connected to the problem above.    

The Switch is a pretty cheap one by Sweex and the network-cards are both from Realtech, if it helps. Also one of my computers are a AMD 2400+ with 512 mb RAM and so on. The other computer is a bit older. It's a Intel Celeron 450MHz with 321 mb RAM. I've also tried with a similar computer instead of the older one but I get the same results.

Ok I think that's all the info you need.

I believe that your reduced speed is caused by your network card being set to "Auto Negotiate" in the Network Adapter properties. This article from TweakXP.com goes thoroughly over the different configurations needed to speed up your network: http://www.tweakxp.com/tweak2142.aspx. Good Luck!

Thanks for the help, but it didn't help. My cards were set to "Auto Negotiate" and I did reset them but the problem remains. I've got a funny feeling that it's something with the hardware. Could the fact that one of the computers is pretty old have something to do with this?
