My PC upstairs is running XP Pro SP1 with my media partition shared as read only. My work laptop is running 2000SP6 and I log into my work network using VPN software and ID card. I can access my PC upstairs when I'm logged into VPN but not when I'm just logged into my lan at home. To clarify, my network is 802.11g for both. I'm only wanting to access my PC upatairs when I'm home and part of the wireless network. I use VPN so I can get my work email and shit from home. I can only access my media PC with he laptop when I'm logged into VPN, weird. My network is supposed to be running at 55Mbps, but VPN seems to slow that to about 1MBps. I can't change any network settings on my laptop, it just boots and resolves an IP. I can't change the domain (corporate shit). Any thoughts? I'd like to be able to access it without logging into the VPN and try to get a higher speed than 1MBps, or is 55Mbps = 1MBps? THANKS!
