I have two PCs (Windows 7 Ultimate) and a Mac running Windows 7 using VMware Fusion on my home network tied together using a WRN1000 NETGEAR Router.
On one of the PCs I have a set of files (MYOB .myo). These use a data source to access the data in the files.
Operations (reading, writing) to the .myo on the PC which hosts the files is fine but on the other two it is painfully slow/unreliable. I am wondering what I can do to speed this up.
Some ideas I have are:
- Turn off the Windows Firewall on all the Windows installations on the home network
- Buy another router, specifically a router which I can connect a USB flash drive on the back where I can put the .myo files and all the PCs can access the files from the USB flash drive on the router (does this speed things up?)
Any advice greatly appreciated on how I can speed up this access to data.
