Problems with NBT packets through a cisco 2620 router
We've two different IP ranges on our LAN connected via a cisco 2620 router. When we save an excel file from a pc on the first ip net to a server on the second ip range it takes 8 mins. When we do the same on a pc on the same ip net it takes only 45 sec. I suppose that this has something to do with the configuration of the router. Response time of ip traffic seems to be normal. Only NBT packests seems to give a very poor response time. I've tried to forward UDP traffic (ip forward-protocol udp) but no improvement. Can somebody help ?

To copy a file on a LAN that is only 15Mbytes should take less than 5 seconds (about 2 sec in a 100Mbs LAN). If it is taking 45 for you, I would suspect a PC issue. On the server/PC in question, you can download for free Ethereal and see how long the PC is holding the packets before sending. I would start with the PCs, make sure they aren't the bottleneck, then move to the router/network.
