Which Better, Faster .... Workgroup Or Domain?

We have a new bramch which running over 25 Pc's, i have join them to Domain but i'm having a problem such Traffics, Hunging, Softwares Stucking ..... etc
While Though, Network Installation Is Perfect.

RE: Which Better, Faster .... Workgroup Or Domain?

  If you are having problems as you mention I personally would look at the network speed.   I have seen 10Mbps networks croak on sending files of 2 megs in size.  They hang, wang, and tang all over the place.  You might also just need to use a switch instead of a hub.  If you encounter alot of collisions on the network it can disable that port on the hub.  Although this type of behavior is feel is more prone to 10Mbps than 100Mbps networks.

  A DOAMIN is always better as you have complete control over user access.  With a workgroup everyone can see erveryone per say, unless tha certain user does not wish a resource to be viewed or used.

RE: Which Better, Faster .... Workgroup Or Domain?

Switching to a workgroup environment won't have a significant impact on your network performance (unless you're using roaming profiles - in which case you may see a speed increase but you lose the benefits of roaming).

See Thread581-766660 for a similar question about network performance.
