    okay a minor annoyance

    but my network is fast as hell, sustained 90MB/s copies over it and everything is fine and dandy

    however whenever i open my network (windows 7) it takes about 15 seconds for my network computers to show up.

    normally i just access my server using '\\home' which has no problem whatsoever, but on some windows (open folderdialog) its just not possible and you have to wait for all network comps to be found

    surely there is a service somewhere that is able to keep a map of networked computers and keep it regularly updated

    anyone know what it is or whether its something that needs to be broadcast or listened

    or could this be a dns issue?

    Well there are myriad things to consider when accessing network shares, such as AntiVirus software, DNS configuration, the NTFS volume (security descriptors & indexes) setup, etc.

    Also, do you have multiple switches/routers on the network? Do you find that the slowness occurs only when having to traverse switches/routers?
