    If you can successfully network between the two computers, why worry about setting NetBIOS settings. Open the properties for the Local Area Connection and double-click Internet Protocol TCP/IP. Click the Advanced button and then the WINS tab - just set the NetBIOS section at the bottom to default.

    However, if you've got a network working OK - why change anything?

    Are both cards rated at the same speed (100Mbps rather than 10Mbps)? Is one running at full duplex while the other is running at half duplex?

    Those stats don't look right to me. This is a two pc network right? If communcating to each other the bit count sent and received should be similar not with appox 230,000 difference.

    One card running at a 100mbps and one running at 10mbps would not make a difference in this aspect. Sent and recieved should be in similar but opposite ranges [send on pc1 is receive on pc2]

    It would appear to me the onboard nic of PC1 is malfunctioning. Could also be possible that the hub/switch/cable is also a issue.

    Don't confuse a hardware issue with a protocol issue. Apples and oranges.

    If it's the onboard nic you can disable it and put in a pci nic card.

    Never seen anything like this before and I can't find much about it on Google either. Perhaps you should unshare the folder and then re-share it.

    It's certainly pretty impressive - I wouldn't say that I would fancy looking at that though every time I use my computer
