I have a long distance WiFi point-to-point connection. It works well most of the time, but then occasionally acts up. When it does act up, I have problems connecting vie NetBIOS (Utilizing both alphanumeric and TCPIP UNCs) over that network segment to files on another Windows 7 PC. That is fine, except that NetBIOS seems determined to make the connection. As a result, I must wait more than a minute for it to try whatever it is trying before timing out and throwing a "I can't connect" message.
My question then is, how, or what, do I change to keep Windows from going on a long walk trying to make a connection, and just give it the "ol' college try" and then give up quickly. I would like to change wait times from over a minute to seconds if possible.
Review: WiFi connection issue is not part of the question. NetBIOS connection works well normally, but takes an inordinate amount of time to timeout if network is problematic. How do I get Windows to timeout sooner when trying to make an ill-fated NetBIOS connection.
Thanks in advance.
