My LAN appears fine from a TCP/IP point of view over wifi: Macs on the wifi network are pingable, I can do web sharing and http://10.0.5.nn works fine. Internet access is also working for all machines.
However, I cannot connect via AFP: trying to see shared volumes on mymac.local results in a message to make sure sharing is on (it is) and to see my sysadmin if I still can't connect. That's me. It's a home network.
Don't know what to try next. Suggestion?
Thanks and regards, David
Update: Shutdown all computers on network, bounced the router/ DHCP server, then brought them up one at a time. Problem still there, but now I see it's a performance problem of some sort. Some attempts to connect to a share failed as before, but some succeeded after a Loooong time. Even after the share came up, copying a file to it was very slow. What the heck is going on???
