Any way to increase the speed of net browsing?

HI

Whenever I try to browse my network folders Far freezes like 10 seconds then lists the contents. Sure my wifi is not the fastest around town, however I would like if Far does not freeze during loading.

Any recommendations?

thanks

AFAIK this is a Windows issue - loading the list of computers is slow.

kaheem, is it still slow if the folder contains just a few files? What if you switch to the panel mode which only lists file names, without details? Does Explorer list the same folders faster?

To me Windows seems to load it faster than Far can of the same folder. Far still freezes with less files.

I will try the pane modes.
