Default Excel Files Open Slowly


I work in an office that has 2 subnets. 192.168.112.x and 192.168.113.x. I
can open Excel files on a remote server very quickly when i am doing it from
a 112 computer. Excel files open very slowly when i am doing it from a 113
computer. When i put a 113 computer on the 112 network, Excel files open
very quickly. I verified IP, gateway, and DNS info is correct. I tried
using private and public DNS servers in my IP configuration. All computers on
the 112 and 113 network are plugged into the same switch. Can you give me a
list of things to check so i can troubleshoot this issue?

All computers on the 112 and 113 network are plugged into the same
switch.

If all computers are plugged into the same "switch", then they are on
the same physical subnet. Change your Subnet Mask from 255.255.255.0
to 255.255.254.0 on all machines.

HTH,
John

Hi
If it happen to me I would not touch anything and talk to whoever is in
charge of the network.
The switch might be not a regular switch, and the topology might be a none
conventional one.
