  • If you’re using Windows Vista in an Network environment, you may have noticed slowness, while browsing of network folders with or without connecting through a domain, when browsing Windows Server 2003 shared folders.

    The fix involves changing two settings from the command prompt. You need to run the command prompt as an administrator. You can do this by right-clicking and selecting run as administrator. Type in the following commands:

    netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
    netsh int tcp set global rss=disabled

    You will need to restart your machine afterwards. The difference is night and day. I wonder what the reasoning was for not having Vista set like this out of the box?If you are unhappy with the changes you can restore the default settings with

    netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
    netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
