Hi,

I have two customers with big problems on there laptops.
Using the laptops in house works fine.

Using the laptops in a other network without a NW server,
a right click on an icon or launching a program is very slow - about 30
seconds.

With Wireshark I see, 8 DNS queries and a SLP query.


I followed the suggestions in: TID10065560, TID10093266 and
http://www.ithowto.com/novell/clientspeed.htm but none of them worked.

Below is the registry file I compiled from all of the suggestions but it did
not help.


Any ideas how to get the laptops working without delays if no NW server is
found?
