Alright, here is the rundown. Not sure what kind of network I am on - in the chooser, each building on the network is divided into a separate zone - thats all I really know. As far as TCP/IP connections, connecting to a computer seemed a little faster and browsing the hard disk, but copying files was still slow. However, when connecting regularly, my whole computer gets very sluggish. Connecting to my computer from a remote computer has the same results. Connecting to my iDisk is also slow. As I have said before, the rest of my internet settings fly - it only seems to be bogged down on the services that mount the shared volume on my desktop. Thanks.
