I just bought my first MacBook Pro. One frustration I have is accessing my shared windows-based network assets. I have two servers on the network, but they seem to take forever to be discovered by my MBP.
- I open my MBP
- Once connected to WiFi, I open Finder and then Go > Network
- I wait and wait and wait and wait for the windows-based network assets to be discovered
I'm not sure how long it takes because I usually just go about doing other things then check back. I think it could take up to a half hour though (more/less). Sometimes, even when I can see the server, it takes an unacceptably long time to connect to it.
Is there any way to improve this? Is the problem a mac/pc thing?
