i have been running web severs for many years but this is very puzzeling.
when i do a manual setup of apache/mysql/php/phpmyadmin it runs to slow to really do anything with (about 40-60seconds to load a 10kb image), but if i run "ping www.google.com -t" it returns constant values of 19-60ms every time.
when i set up xamp everthing is perfect, all sites and images load in ms instead of sec's. but if i run the same 'ping www.google.com -t' it now returns values of 1100-2500ms' constantly. making it imposiple to do anything on the internet on any computer on my network.
my sever system is:
ms win xp
1g ddr mem
any help would be greatly appreciated.
