How To Speed Up Network

Sep 19, 2012

I setup a network to run my business three years ago. It consists of 7 computers, an HP Media Smart server, three Netgear GS 605 v 3, where I connect the computers, router and printers.The server is only used as a file server and runs the backups. However, I also put together an Access database which has a front end on each computer and a back end on the server.Reading data from the database on some machines is terribly slow at times, 30 seconds or more for a response, but other times it is almost as quick as you can type.We are a lot busier now so do I need to upgrade hardware or do I have a problem. For example, my machine is just a Vista machine and writes to server at 60Mbps and reads at 21Mbps, two other Windows 7 machines write at 70Mbps but only read at 3Mbps. If I look at the Status of my Local Area Connection Status, its speed is 100.0 Mbps yet the Netgear states 10/100/1000. I have concluded that I need to change the network cards in the computers, but I don't know if I am correct.

Lan Network Speed Dropped To Very Low?

Jan 31, 2012

2 pcs connected with a TPlink modem/switch. wired connection.One pc running win7 64, other xp sp3. Both home pcs..Used to get about 10mbs transfer speed. ( I know its low, but was more than happy with it as I never use it to transfer large files.But suddenly transfer speed changed to just 8kbps. Its kind of a speed limit activated.I can just browse files and folders but cannot copy at 8kbps.

Network Speed Is Slowing?

Feb 15, 2012

Is there a way to monitor network traffic speeds. Our companies network download speeds seem to start high, but then progressively slows to a near stop.Downloading small documents start out fast and finishes, but I noticed that the speed slows down significantly. This poses a problem when downloading larger files and documentsThe speed start out very high, but then slows to near zero and results in the file failing to complete.What i need is to find out what is causing the speed degradation and or where our bottleneck is. Is this a setting issue with the browser, security, etc.

Network Speed Stuck At 10mbps

Mar 20, 2011

The Setup On my home network, I am running Windows Server 2003 as domain controller and file server with a SCSi attached disk array.I have several client PC's. 2 running Windows XP service pack 3, 1 laptop running Windows 7 Service pack 1 and a desktop also running Windows 7 Service Pack 1.These are connected by 2 switches - 1 x Netgear gigabit switch, and a Linksys PSUS4 USB Print server at 100mbps.The PC I use the most is the desktop running Win7 and transfer files to the server.After transferring some large files from the clients to the server, I noticed that the speed was considerably slower than what I was expecting it to be. After investigating, and eliminating elements of the network, I discovered that the Server NIC was running at 10mbps. I tried the usual things like forcing the NIC to run at 100mbps Full Duplex but this had no effect. Strangely, if I reboot the server while the desktop is still switched on the connection goes back to 100mbps. However if I reboot the desktop, or even alter the network settings, it immediatley reverts back to 10mbps.

Network Speed Test Results?

Jan 10, 2011

I did a network test with Passmarks Performancetest. I'm running a 10/100 network with all devices connecting at 100Mb. On Performancetest there are 2 tests to run for Network speed, TCP and UDP. The TCP speed test came back with an average 62000kbps (7.5Mb), and the UDP was 89000kbps (10.8Mb). As I'm running a 100mb network, shouldn't the results of been higher?

Can't Explain Network Speed Discrepancy Between Locations

Feb 6, 2013

why one of my two offices experiences significantly slower speeds when accessing the web. I'm a complete technology simpleton, so I haven't been able to figure out a logical reason for it. Here's the scenario:

Office 1..................................................Office 2
Comcast Business.....................................Comcast Business
tests at 33 mbps down..............................tests at 7 mbps down
tests at 6 mbps up....................................tests at 3 mbps up
6 CPUs access Linksys SR216 10/100 switch..6 CPUs access 3Com Office Connect Ethernet Hub
switch accesses Comcast modem.................hub accesses Comcast modem

My laptop, and all other CPUs, perform significantly faster at Office 2.

Is it the difference between the switch at Office 1 v the hub at Office 2? I always thought they were sort of the same thing. I know I've taken some of the cables out of the switch in Office 1 and put them directly into the Comcast Modem and haven't seen any improvement.

Why on earth does my laptop perform so much better at Office 2. I've also moved desktops to Office 2 and they are noticeable faster at that location as well. I'm stumped. We access a major company's web site for account servicing, and it is twice as fast at Office 2...while using the exact same laptop.

One Computer's Download Speed On Network Is Slow?

Sep 1, 2012

When connected to my router on my main desktop, I get download speeds of about .3-.85 mbps, I have comcast and a linksys N router, as well as a N wireless adapter in my desktop. If I use my laptop, I get around 10 mbps download speed, (Speeds are as of [URL]) but they still remain at .3 mbps on my desktop. I have tried two different wireless adapters in my computer. One is the Linksys AE2500 Dual Band N adapter, and the other is an ASUS N13 N Adapter. I have gotten the latest drivers of both adapters, but speeds stayed very low. When I connected the computer via ethernet cable, it ran at 16mbps. So I think that something must be wrong with some wireless settings, since I've tried 2 different adapters and was getting the same result, unless both were faulty I suppose. I also don't think it's my router's issue, because the wireless is working great on other wireless devices. I am using windows 7 on the desktop.

Network Upload Speed Is Randomly Reduced?

Jan 2, 2013

First discovered this problem because I was unable to connect to a particular web site that was functional according to a friend that I was talking to on the telephone while trying to connect.

Problem: Network UPLOAD speed is randomly reduced from 2Mb to 600Kb while download speed seems unaffected (Abt. 30 to 50Mb). First eliminated the router, modem and cables as suspects working with ISP tech support. CAT 5 cabling to router and cable modem. Then I discovered that another machine on the network did not have this problem. I then discovered that disabling the network and re-enabling the network cured the problem.....temporarily. Downloaded and installed latest NIC driver from MB web site. No solution. Downloaded and installed latest NIC driver from Realtek web site. No solution. Updated MB BIOS. No solution.

MB= Asus M5A97 EVO
CPU: AMD FX-4100
OS: MS Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1 (Latest updates)
RAM: 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 802MHz (11-11-11-28
NIC on MB Realtek PCIe GBE

Disabled TCP/IPV6. No solution. I suspect it is one of the "Advanced" settings for the Realtek PCIe GBE, but I don't know what they do. Anytime I disable and re-enable the network adapter my upload speed returns to normal. I haven't been able to isolate a particular action that causes the slow-down. The attached pics show speed test, before and after disable - re-enable network adapter. Same server.

Home Network Setup - Speed Up Connection?

Feb 10, 2012

I have connected my Vista laptop to my old XP laptop using a network cable so that I can share files, printers, etc freely.I have forgotten the correct proceedure for doing this, although the two computers eventually, after a long time link up and I am able to share files. I have done nothing else. I have not entered numbers or anything. The number spaces are blank.I do not understand why it is working at all, but how do I speed up the connection?

Home Network :: Getting Very Slow Speed Of Between 10-15Mbps?

Nov 17, 2011

I have a homeplug network as follows:

6x 85Mbps homeplugs in different rooms, each connected to a 5 port switch

2x rooms contain a PC

5x rooms contain a Squeezebox of various types

Router connected to homeplug

I have realised that I am only getting very slow network speeds of between 10-15Mbps (LAN SPeed Test)which affects Squeezebox's ability to play several devices synched up at a time playing 320Kbps MP3s

I have done some proprietory testing in my home by switching devices on & off & testing network speed accordingly but no significant gains seem to be made. One PC seems to report far lower speeds though at 5Mbps which is 3 times lower than the other PC. They are set up to read/write files from eachothers shared folders (but not simultaneously).1st question is, am I being realistic about the speed of data throughput I expect on a network of this type? I was expecting a much higher speed like 50Mbps.I wouldn't mind investing in the faster Homeplug system but having to buy 6x adapters isn't worth it if I will only get a marginal improvement.

Terrible Wireless Network Connection Speed

Oct 28, 2012

I am having issues with the connection speed between my computer and my router.We have an airport (time capsule) router and I have a realtek rtl8192ce wireless N card, running a fresh install of windows 7, all updates up to date. The problem I'm having is that I am only connecting to the network at either 1 or 7mbps. It (very) occasionally connects at 29mbps but this is only for a split second and still nowhere near the 300mbs rated speed. I don't expect it to be at 300, however nice it would be to have that,but I would just like a decent rate as my download speed is maxing out at around 2mbs and my upload speed is twice as fast. Another desktop in the same room, next to my current on which is also connecting wirelessly is downloading around 15mb. That connection is either at 29mbps or 56mbps.It is currently connected on channel 7, there is only one other network on that channel in range. Earlier it was connected on channel 10 and there were no other networks on that channel and the connection speed is no different.

Adding WAP To Network Kills Wired Speed?

Oct 2, 2011

If you look at my attachment it shows a thousand words; but basically I have a 4 port Thompson ADSL modem/router which handles the DHCP, and plugged into this are my main PC which I use to serve video files and music to my PS3 - which is connected to the same router but via a switch.The WIFI on the Thompson modem is switched off.In this scenario alone (NO Belkin wireless access point) my media plays beautifully via PS3 Media Server.However the moment I connect the Belkin into the switch as well, it plays havoc with the wired connection speed between the PC and PS3, dropping it to near unplayable speeds. Massive video stutters, music stops etc. I measured it using a PC on the end of the cable instead of the PS3 and it came out at about 1.4Mbps using 'LAN Speed Test'[CODE]

Setting Up A Personal Network - Speed Is Very Slow?

Sep 9, 2012

in my house we currently have a ps3, 2 xbox's, a wii, 4 iphones, 2 pc's, a laptop, an apple tv, and 2 android tablets running off one internet connection. In my room, i have my PC, my xbox, and my apple tv. as you can imagine, my internet is painfully slow, although we have the fastest available from our provide (7mb per second i believe) running wired is fine but theres no way of me being able to do that. How could i go about setting up a second private network for my devices only? i would want to run my apple tv, pc, phone and xbox off of connection. without it being as painfully slow as my home network. i was thinking perhaps an airport extreme, and running it off of my router.

Increased DSL Speed - Cannot Connect To Playstation Network On PS3,

Nov 1, 2012

We had 1.5 Mbps, but we just upgraded to 8 Mbps. Right away we noticed that we couldn't connect to the Playstation network on the PS3, and loading Google would take several tries. In some cases you couldn't even refresh the page to load Google, you would have to open a new tab. We would have bursts of good speeds from online speed tests, ranging from 8.6Mbps down to not being able to load the test, and everything in between. urls... live in Wisconsin and my ISP is Centurylink (formerly Centurytel), a technician came over yesterday and checked our box outside and inside and said that it was our Margin (db), if I remember correctly. Here is the info from my router: [code] The technician ended up lowering our speed to 6 Mbps, and said that everything looked good, and left. The Margin (db) was at 7.3 inside and 9.7 outside before he lowered it, and he thought that if we could hit 10, we would be fine. If that's the case then it seems like the margin is not the problem. If we are using too much speed could we set QoS on a router (would need a different router) to limit the bandwidth?
