LAN Slow !

By decent5k ·
Hi All,

My company has a small LAN consisting of 10 win2k pro workstation and a win2k server.There are two 8ports hub and CAT5 cables. There is router which is attached to a workstation to share the internet. Each workstation has their own IP and GATEWAY IP is of internet connected WORKSTATION and DNS IP is of local DNS server. The server DNS is setup OK and it works as forwarder for internet connection.

The server has a shared forlder which has subfolders as well for each user. Now the problem is network responds very slow when accessing folders. Sometime it doesn't responds also and if a MSWord file open over the network. Either MSWord stops responding or making a simple change in the file takes too much time.

Can anyone suggest what to do or where is the problem?

Thanks

Move to a 100 MB switch.

Move the Internet connection to a router connected directly off the switch.
