Unhappy Slow vista network on one computer but not the other

Hey everyone!

I have two Vista Ultimate computers attached to one network with regular ethernet LAN cables. Each computer has a lot of video files on them that I want to be able to open on either. The network is VERY fast so I know this isn't the problem.

I'm not 100% sure how to do network settings in Vista, but I have disabled UAC, windows firewall, and enabled public file sharing without passwords on both computers. They both have identical connection speeds

So on computer1, I can go into network and sharing and find computer2 and open any shared video file and it will play perfect quality in less than 5 seconds. It can also download any file on computer2 at 10MB/s

On computer2, I can go into network and sharing and its MUCH slower, but I can find computer1, and it takes a while to open each folder. It takes about 4 mins to start even playing the video, and then will play about 1 second before stopping and loading again. It downloads any file on computer1 at about 10kb/s. KB, not MB

something is up but im not sure how to fix it... any ideas?

Slow network transfer speeds seems to be a common issue in Windows Vista, I have seen many solutions to the problem but some of them don't work. I think Microsoft is going to release a patch to fix this soon.

Anyway with that said, What's the spec of your computers?

Do they have the same network cards in them?

That is strange, so you have configured them with the exact same settings?

Perhaps try these: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&r...+Vista&spell=1

EDIT: Have you installed the Vista Peformance and Reliability Pack? If not, see here:
