Can't share large files, can't share large number of files

by silentassassin888 / September 13, 2007 1:08 PM PDT

I have 3 comps hooked up through a switch. I can't move files larger than 600 megs between computers or I get cyclic redundency, time out, and unable to find file errors. The same happens if I try to transfer more than about 2 gigs of files at one time. Normal moving works fine. The problem happens if I try to take or move files from another computer . I get more data through if I take files though. 2 comps on xp pro and 1 on xp home. I was wondering what might cause this prob and if I switched to a router it might help. Also, 1 xp pro is sharing the internet connection. Thanks

A switch is not designed. . .

for what you want to do, a router is. Get a router and remove the switch. A switch is only used behind a router for adding more computers.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
