ping reply delay

Post by quibb » Fri, 27 Nov 1998 04:00:00

hello all,

i am setting up a freebsd box and installed everything, to my
knowledge, correctly.  this is the fourth time i have re-installed
freebsd, becuase i thought i may have done something wrong.  alas the
same problem continues to reoccur.
i have configured the network card in said machine, but it will not
effectively ping another computer on the same network without a
response time of up to 10000.00ms.  the two computers are on the same
hub, with one internet router.  please help.

thanks in advance
