First you should test your network bandwith and usage, SiSoft Sandra is a good way to start. You might also consider that the slow performance of the network is due to server limitations, and this one is the most probable scenario, verify if the server is constantly caching (HD led is always blinking) and if so you might want to consider a memmory upgrade or a server upgrade. Give us more tech data and we can help you better. Regards

Network speed

by archon285 In reply to network speed

Are you talking about the speed of internet access (which is down to your phone line / modem / ISP) or the speed between machines on your own network (which is partly down to server and the networking cards you use.)

If the former - then ISDN orASDL is likely your best solution. Much higher speed than a modem.

Otherwise, look at using PCI not ISA cards, and 100 speed transfer, not the older 10.

Downloading a megabye of data takes me about 5 minutes via a modem, or 5 secs to move around the network.

E-mail if I can help further.
