Your network is only using netbuei. TCP/IP is not configured correctly and thats why when u uninstall netbuei, you loose it. Since you can see stuff when buei is running, you know your hardware is communicating so you can concentrate
on TCP/IP settings. Then I would remove netbuei because having the two protocols can reduce speed.
I think the reason your speed is so slow when you try to connect to the other pc may be because the nic is searching for a valid ip address and cant obtain it then finally it gives up and you can see the other pc then by buei only.
