    Copying ZIPped Files Across Network Doesn't Work

    Does any body else have a problem transferring files to/from a
    wireless-connected Vista system and a LAN-connected Vista machine? I
    do -- the transfers frequently hang up and drop the wireless
    connection until I manually abort the transfer.

    It never happened between wireless Vista and cable-connected Win2K --
    only if both systems are Vista, and there are multiple, embedded .zip
    files. It seems as though Vista just can't handle the
    unzipping/zipping without timing out somewhere.

    Has anyone else seen this, and has anyone found a solution?
