If the servers on the other end are microsoft servers then they prob use "selective ACKS" or "Timestamping". You need to disable these on your mac. You can edit the en0, ppp0 config or download a app called "rmac" you can edit en0, ppp0 there to remove timestamping.

WHERE do we find these "Timestamping" things to 'disable'??? Maybe that's my problem too??? Thanks
