I have a small network of 3 machines. .
PC desktop windows 2000
PC laptop windows 2000
Mac G3 Mac OS 9.1
After upgrading to Windows 2000 I set up internet connection sharing on the
desktop PC to allow others to connect to the internet. Unfortunately the
connection performs very poorly when viewing web pages on the machines that
access the internet via ICS.
I think that this is due to a limit on the number of simultaneous
connections. The total bandwidth available does not seem to be limited and
everything runs fine when checking e-mail (single connection). However when
transferring a lot of files via FTP, I noticed that the FTP program would
only allow 2 connections at a time. I'm sure that this is the cause of slow
display of web pages. This really slows things down on sites that use a lot
Is it possible that the ICS software is not set-up or installed correctly,
or can I update the number of simultaneous connections allowed?
Any suggestions appreciated
