Slow Network - Need Help Troubleshooting

Q: Slow Network - Need Help Troubleshooting

Recently, one of our old servers died. It was expected, so it wasn't to big of a problem.

I got a new server up and running, it was working awesome. So much faster than before. Anyways I re-installed my Panda Business Secure and pushed out the communication agent to all of the office PC's.

After doing this rollout of the communications agent, the network seems to be slowed to a crawl. Is there some free program that I can get or use to check why its going so slow? I am new to this job and unfortunately have no one to help me, so Im completely at a loss here and people are slowly getting mad.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Preferred Solution: Slow Network - Need Help Troubleshooting

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Slow Network - Need Help Troubleshooting

What's it plugged into? (Switch, what model, what type of cable, etc)

What type of server?
What's processor load? (CPU, disk IO, etc.)
What processes are loaded? (Look at taskman)
What's it connected to? (Do netstat -no)

For what it's worth, a very common problem on switched 10/100 networks is Link Speed/Duplex. I wouldn't exactly call FastEthernet link negotiation reliable. If the NIC is forced 100/FULL, or the switchport is forced 100/FULL - the other side will never try PHY negotiation and will more often than not end up with mismatch duplex.

Hi,

I got my Fiber line installed about 2 months ago. The offer I pay for says 1Gbits/s down and 200Mbits up. Naturally, I've never even gotten close to those speeds. At first, when the guy did his thing, I didn't have an Ethernet cable on hand (despite being a network and IT student...I know, the irony), so I used the router's Wifi. I was averaging 70 Mbits down. At first, I was thinking, 'this seems a bit low'...for fibre of course). I went into lectures the next day and people said, you may need to wait for your line to be properly activated...this seemed plausible, so I waited. The next week I stuck an RJ45 on some CATVE and immediately went to average 500Mbits/s (688Mbits/s record). Now, this is great, but it's still half of what I'm paying for.

However, for the past 2 days, I've been having problems. My Desktop (after coming out of sleep) always has the yellow triangle symbol over the wireless icon (faulty ethernet cable so was back to WiFi). I disconnect and reconnect to find the same problem. I restart the wireless on the router, to find the problem is persisting. Only after 3-5 tries does it work. My phone too has been having trouble connecting to WiFi (Authentification problem).

The original CAT5 cable has since 'developed' a problem and has been changed. The Pc hasn't been having the connection problem out of sleep, but Chrome is very slow to do anything. Youtube loads every other time, social media too. I... Read more

I recently purchased a new laptop running Windows 7.  On setup, I was pleased to find that it connected to my home network without much complaint.  However, I soon noticed a misstep -- after putting my laptop to sleep, upon waking, it
would consistently fail to connect to network.
I've tried disabling IP Helper, as well as the wireless adapter's IPv6 protocola
la advice on other forums.  I've also ensured that the driver settings do not allow for disabling to save power.  Seeing that none of these worked, I decided uninstall and delete the driver and install a newer version (in a related issue,
the driver update feature failed to detect the existence of a newer version -- why?).
This appears to have fixed the connection issue.  However, still, after sleeping the laptop and waking, although it connects to the router, I still need to reset the IP command-line via ipconfig /release + /renew.
I was running Vista on my previous machine, and I know that its Network Diagnostic tool would, when presenting solutions, frequently suggest that my computer had the wrong IP and that I should reset it.  I was hoping throughout this process
that the Network Diagnostic troubleshooter would present a similar option.  Instead, however, no matter what I do with my wireless, the troubleshooter only ever returns the message "Troubleshooter couldn't identify any problems."  Whether or not
I check the box for auto-repair or run ... Read more

Hi,
To avoid confusion Let us focus on the first issue within this thread first.
Can you access internet when connecting the laptop directly via cable?
Where did you download the newer version of network card driver? Usually, the “driver update” feature from device manager will go to Microsoft update catalog website for the corresponding driver instead of the manufacture’s website. AT
this point, I would suggest install the latest driver
here. Please note: Microsoft don't write drivers, for any driver related issue, the OEM is always the best resource to turn to. Your understanding is appreciated.
As a workaround, you can prevent the network card from sleeping by the following method:
Open Device manager->expand Network adapter-> right click on the wireless adapter->Properties->under Power Management tab, uncheck the box before “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”.
Is anything unclear, please feel free to post back.

Hi all, I really don't know squat about networks, frankly I am surprised that I got it working and kept it working for a couple of years now. Recently the teens got their own systems and everything ran smooth for a few weeks and now we constantly get internet outages.
We have a win xp machine that is home to the cable modem and a belkin router, model
f5d7230-4, a windows 98se machine with a belkin usb adaptor, another win xp also with a belkin wireless usb adaptor and a Linux machine with a d-link card. ( I'll have to hunt up the exact model) The problem is that we are constantly loosing internet on the second xp machine and the linux machine ( the win 98 machine isn't used very much, but is offline right now) Most of the times we lose it on the above machines but for the last couple of days I lose connection on the main one. I can usually get it back after unplugging the router for a few minutes and restarting. After a few minutes I get a yell from upstairs that " my internet is out again".

If you have teen girls, you know the yell!

Any ideas on where to begin?
Ps, she is yelling at me again! Says she can see that the network is there, is just won't connect.

Hey guys, I have some trouble with my home network and I'm running out of ideas. I don't like to ask for help but here I am, a little desperate as well to be honest.

The network components:

Switch (10 clients, 1 server (Windows Server 2008 R2 with AD/DNS/DHCP), 1 router)

Now I bought a new Router (ASUS AC66U) for the second floor, which I configured as Accesspoint so I can use WLAN, also connected to the switch.

I flashed DD-WRT and everything seemed to work fine, but sporadically I lose Internet connectivity on my WLAN connected devices. Later I discovered, that I also lose connection on my clients when that happens.

I ran a wireshark capture on one of the clients and what happens now (reproducible) is that when I open a URL I get lots of TCP DUP ACK and TCP RETRANSMISSION packets, the site opens very slowly, if at all. Now the interesting part: When I turn off the AC66U and open up a site it instantly loads and there are maybe 1-2 retransmission packets.

I didn't run the wireshark trace on other firmwares I tried (ASUSWRT Merlin, stock firmware and TomatoUSB by Shibby) but the symptoms are the same.

In the source of the packets I see the MAC adress of the first router, which connects to my ISP and I guess there is some kind of conflict but I am by no means an expert to network related stuff.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could guide me through the setup of DD-WRT to coexist peacefully with the other router or give me some useful hints on h... Read more

I've worked on a lot of systems but one thing keeps puzzling me, whether in Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8.

PC's acting real slow overall; not talking internet, talking the whole system stop responding for period of time, hanging/freezing for a little bit and then back to normal, not even taking things like ctrl-alt-del command (at least not for 30-60 seconds).

But at the same time you can view TaskMgr and it is showing 20-50% of CPU and memory used up, Peak RAM not even near top, over 1gb free, no applications or only 1 or 2 running, only 1 user, show processes from all users checked. Why in the world should any system run slow with all those resources open?

Half of the time this is even after I've run ccleaner, disabled extra stuff then, defrag if needed, disabled any extraneous startup entries, rebooted, scanned for and/or cleaned up any malware with malwarebytes and/or super antispyware and rebooted. And you can get it running fairly well and then go on using it and it starts to do the crazy behavior again of lack of responding or everything loading very slow.

The other two computers have recently slowed down MASSIVELY when trying to open and use the DOS program from the primary computer, to the point that the program is unuseable because of the wait time for something to happen.

I have 4 computers on a mixed WinXP Pro and Vista network with a linksys wireless router and dsl.

One WinXp machine is plugged directly into the wireless router with Cat5 cable and there is a desktop with a linksys wireless card and 2 laptops.

The workgroup I named Workgroup. Each computer has a unique computer name. The computer that is wired directly to the router is called JOY-DELL.

I can see the other computers and they can see this Dell, but when they try to access it, they get a message access denied. Error Code 0x80070005. The other WinXp machine said that it might not have permission, contact the administrator, etc.

On Joy-Dell, file & printer sharing is enabled. Folders are shared.

They all have AVG Internet Security and I went into the firewall settings and made the linksys router 192.168.0.1 to 25 safe zones, also setting for Small Network. I even at one point disabled the firewalls.

They can ALL get on the internet just fine, which tells me it's something else.

Hi

The company that I currently work for has a server (windows server 2003) and roughly 16 desktops throughout our building (yes we're small).

For a while now, when one of employee's has had an issue, I'd use a remote desktop program (DameWare Mini Remote Control) to view what was happening and attempt to resolve the issue. Unless it was a hardware issue, other wise I'd be able to address most issues without having to walk to the other side of the building.

Long story short, we recently hired a new QA manager. He claims that remote trouble shooting is a very poor way to trouble shoot, identify, and fix problems. I was curious how true this is. According to his claims, if Access (or any other program) is having issues making their connection to the server, when I remote in, I could be re-establishing the connection, which won't give me the ability to replicate error/issue.

I've never heard of people saying remote troubleshooting is an extremely poor way to view issues/try to fix them. But I may be wrong.

Any advice (and do you have documentation/references to back it up regardless of if you agree/disagree).

Thank you for your help.

Hi all,

Looking for some assistance in figuring out why mt machine has slowed down remarkably.

I originally thought it was high disk activity but that does not seem to be the case. I did some digging with Process Explorer and Process Monitor and could not nail down any individual program that was really thrashing the disk. The high activity was from running uTorrent, but even when I pause all of my torrents that I'm seeding, the machine is still slow.

Now that I've gotten through the disk activity, I'm really not sure where to go.

The machine was running great and then after installing SP1 a week or so ago, it's been a bit of a dog. I saw some stuff about the disk indexing being a problem right after installing SP1, but that it calmed down after a while for people, but mine never sped back up, so I don't think that is the issue.

TIA!

At our company we have a LAN with about 15-20 computers (win xp/vista) mostly HP within 1-5 years old, a linux mail server, a win 2003 domain/file server with DNS and intranet HTTP. The network also has an ADSL wi-fi router with DHCP for the Wi-Fi (wired systems are on static IPs), another wi-fi access point, about 3 or 4 switches, about 10 IP phones and an asterik phone server. A few (not all) of the workstations are actually daisychained through the IP phone where there aren't enough network points available. We're using some network applications such as Sage Accounts, and Clik Service. The network infrastructure is heterogeneous, mosty netgear but I think there's some belkin and belkin devices. There's also a backup server, one networked printer, and a couple of shared printers hosted on workstations. The network has built up over the last decade or so and hasn't actually been designed, it just grew by itself. There's probably other things I've forgotten to mention too.

It may not be surprising, but our network is running quite slow (both using the Internet and LAN) and has been for a long time. Is there a way to track down the main sources of slowness without going to huge expenses such as hiring a network consultant?

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

The problem seems to be me losing my connection. I'll either be playing a game or surfing the web when all of a sudden, the internet stops working. I've tried to look into setting up DDNS and signed up with DynDNS, but that's as far as I've gotten. All help is appreciated, and my current setup is Modem->PC (Not Modem->Router->PC)

The router occasionally reboots itself, causing all connectivity to cease. It also will occasionally just drop the wireless connection and then reconnect after a few minutes. I read on a another forum that this issue might actually be caused by my ADSL connection somehow.

A:Troubleshooting steps for slow startup

Hi TooTired

I wouldn't worry at all about the yellow exclamation points next to the ParPort and Serial devices in Device Manager, if your motherboard has neither of these devices. Many modern boards do not, especially laptops. The reason these show up in XP's hidden devices list at all is that some "superIO" chips are still used that have a built-in capability to control parallel and serial ports, when such are wired in to the board. If no such devices are wired in, it doesn't hurt anything - other than the mysterious exclamation point you found in Device Manager. The "SuperIO" chips, by the way, are still there for a reason - there are many other devices that they enable you to use, that are still used by laptops and desktops alike.

I am curious to see what the "Details" are for the EventViewer errors for F-Secure Antivirus (event 103), Application Error/Hang (events 100/101), WLTRYSVC (event 2), Service Control Manager (events 7000/7009), and "Disk" (event 7). To view the "Details" of an EventViewer event, right-click on the event, and select "Properties". I'm especially curious to see what disk is mentioned in the disk errors - there are quite a few of those errors, not good if they stem from a hard drive (no big deal, however, if they stem from a dirty/scratched CD). Also worth investigating is the setup of your F-Secure Antivirus. You have a lot of errors, consistently, associated with that progra... Read more

I just recently did a clean install for my new SSD on my alienware m11x and have been having problems with inconsistent download speeds. I made sure I had all the correct drivers and was pretty thorough in doing so (to the best of my knowledge.) After a week or so of no luck, I think I may have stumbled upon the source of the problem. I troubleshooted my wireless network adapter and it showed that it had fixed the problem. Unfortunately, this was not the case. I ran it again and it said that it had fixed the problem. Again, this was not the case.

Dunno if this is better in the networking forum or the printer forum but i thought i'd give this forum a try as i tend to think it may be the network but need opinions and why.

The problem is:

I've got a Kyocera FS-C5016 Laser Colour printer on a network (connected via TCP/IP not shared). I did one print to it this morning and that was all it would do for the rest of the day. I've tried to ping it, but failed. I've changed IP address,no luck. I've tried same ethernet cable used for this printer on a computer and from this PC I could ping other PC's and gateway successfully. I've powered off/on my switch and DSL modem, still no go. I've checked all network configurations on the printer, and all look good.

I've hooked my laptop to this printer with a cross-over cable and I can ping and print perfectly (same IP address on printer), never failed once. I've also hooked this printer to another PC's via cross-over and no problems there.

However as soon as i hooked the straight through cable to the NIC on the printer, bang, no ping,no print, thus no go. Printer says "Ready" on LED. I can perform internal prints without problems.

I have since added a add-on NIC to the printer giving it the same IP address as the onboard while having disabled the onboard NIC on the printer. I can ping, print etc all without issue. As soon as I disable this add-on card and enable the onboard NIC and reattach the straight through c... Read more

A:Solved: Network Printing troubleshooting -- weird one!!

I've never dealt with other than shared network printers, so my only question to toss out is have you tried reinstalling the printer software on the network? Or would such a setup even require printer software to be installed somewhere?

I was having a real problem that ate up many hours
(see techsupportforum.com//networking-forum//94185-asymmetric-file-sharing-error.html) but a moderator on this board (johnwill) posted a helpful checklist. (see second post in above thread). In addition to that, I found my problem solved by booting windows xp into 'safe mode with networking'. This allowed me to identify the fact that my problem was caused by some application running as a process in the background. Eliminating the processes one by one from a normal booted machine, eventually restored normal networking and identified the culprit. I post this as a first step that might help anyone with a frustrating windows xp networking problem.

A:a good windows xp network troubleshooting checklist

That is one of the major premises behind safe mode; that it is just windows so that you can troubleshoot possible sources of errors either by creating new user accounts, or disabling various programs from running.
The inclusion of network support in safemode is a real big help too since it allows you to run online scans too.

I'm using Windows 7 64 bit. My computer came out of sleep mode on friday without internet access. I immediately placed a support request with my network provider (I live at a university) but they have yet to respond. In the meantime, I'm treating the issue as though it's originating with my hardware and not theirs.

I've tried updating my network adapter driver, reinstalling the adapter, disabling services like Bonjour, restoring my system, entering safe-mode, releasing/renewing my ip, malware detection, disabling tunneling adapters, disabling IPv6. Finally, I lost my mind and tried a full reinstall of windows. The problem persists, unchanged.

After looking at the attached information, is there anything else that you would suggest I try?

Im using Windows XP Professional on both my desktops.
I am using a Netgear 108 mps wireless router, WGT624v3
And a LinksysWireless-G PCI Adapter.
I have completed the setup, I have good signal strength. However I cannot connect to the internet, and The adapter is saying the it is "Aquiring Network Address"
Under the support tab, it reads that I have an invalid IP address and lists the ip address as 0.0.0.0. When I click repair it reads renewing ip address but never seems to renew itself.
I have disabled my firewall restarted both computers, router, and adapter multiple times and still have no success. Please help with any advice or recomendations.

Much appreciated

A:Wireless Adapter - Acquiring Network Address Troubleshooting

If your "setup" includes encryption and MAC addresss block or other filtering/security methods you should only add those incrementally as you know other stuff is working

Startout just trying to connect to a simple wireless broadcast and verify your adapter sees the SSID being broadcasted by the router.

Hello,

My machine has been experiencing intermittent BSODing over the last few weeks and I wonder if you could give me a hand troubleshooting it? I'll summarise what i've done so far. It's not given me anything today, as I say, it's intermittent.

System Info:
Processor Name: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
Processor Information: Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3
Graphics Information: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti
Mobo: Z87I-PRO
System BIOS: 0903
Installed System Memory: 16 GB
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (originally installed on system)
Age of system: 1 year, 1 month
OS Reinstalls: None
This is a desktop PC
System Manufacturer: Purchased from ChillBlast
Troubleshooting so far:
* Checked EventViewer for after the crashes. The only useful thing showing is that the Kernel service is shutting down - which I suppose it would if power to it was interrupted.
* Opened up case to check components. Everything seated well. Extremely tidy cabling (if I may say so myself; nothing getting in any fan's way).
* Ran GPU stress test - all fine.
* Ran Processor stress test - all fine
* Ran driver verifier (ran for about 20 minutes) and nothing crashed.

Attached Files:
* PerfmonReport
* Your app collection dump
* IPDT Processor Test results

Appreciate your support :)

Hi,

I would very much appreciate an expert's help here. I believe I have some adware/malware on my computer that may be causing it to boot slow (hangs on the windows flag in XP for 4 minutes at boot up) and then load slow with erratic mouse/cursor movements. Everything seems functional but just slow and erratic. Sound and video is also erratic with skipping and freezing. Below, I have included the file I got from HijackThis.

Ok, I have 5 computers on a home network, 4 Windows XP and one Redhat Linux Fedora Core 4. About a month ago, one of the windows boxes suddenly went from about 550Kb/s download to 100Kb/s download from various newsgroups. Also, when trying to pull AND push files to that same box, it is a very slow file transfer.

I didn't load any new software in that time and I waited so long because at the time, the newsgroup server that I am using reported problems associated with Hurricane Rita. This of course doesn't explain the network speed.

I've run speed tests on all the other computers, and they all report download speeds of about 550Kb/s and upload speeds of about 45Kb/s except the one, and it has download speeds of about 100Kb/s and upload speeds the same, about 45Kb/s.

After I noticed the speed reduction, I loaded a firewall, ** Protowall ** and I downloaded the latest beta of Microsoft Anti-Spyware and ran it. Also, I have Norton with the latest updates and it reports no problems.

Please, let me know if you need more info or if someone had any general tips to try. I am about at the end of my rope and reformatting looks like the only other option to me.

Thanks!

Mike in Ohio

Edit: Forgot to say, I went to 3 differnt speed testing web sites, and they all report the download speed the same on that one box, about 100Kb/s and the others are around 500Kb/s
 

A:1 computer on a network suddenly now has slow file transfer on internet and network

Are all the computers wired similarly? All run to the same router/switch?

You should check the cable of the problematic machine, try using ping to the router with 1400 byte packets. Also, boot up some CD Linux or equivalent and see what speeds you get from there - helps to rule out any problems with the operating system.

I am having a frustrating time with my network. I work for an animall hospital and we have a wired/wireless network with 9 computers (mixed vista ultimate and xp pro with server 2003 sp2 on the server). I am using a Linksys WRT320n router.

My main problem is with my 2 wireless computers, a desktop with a US Robotics 802.11g turbo and one of my laptops, a Dell Inspiron 6400. They are no more then 30 feet from the router and always have a strong signal but will drop their connection and have to be logged of and logged back on. It is very frustrating because there is no rhyme or reason for it. Sometimes it will stay connected all day without dropping and other days it will drop 6-8 times.

I am not sure if this is related or not, but there are several wireless networks that can be seen by these computers including a Comcast WIFI and an Optonline WIFI.

Also, the network will slow down every so often (wired as well as wireless) and I am no sure what the is about. Our applications that we run are not very intence (no graphics or large packets being sent.) Some one said they thought there might be a some sort of a Windows Sharing App. running on the server that was bogging it down but I am not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Specs: Win7 64bit, 4GB ram.

For the past little while now, whenever I would turn on my computer, things would start up but it would hang, in the sense that nothing *would* start up until the network was found and connected to. The network indicator icon in the taskbar would just have a frozen blue spinning circle. While that was happening, I would still have internet access, but certain things like watching youtube would cause the browser to crash. I would be like that for about 10 minutes until suddenly it would tell me "network found" and the rest of my pc starts up as usual.

When in safe mode with networking, this problem does not occur. I used msconfig and disabled everything that starts up to see if that was the issue but the problem still occurred.

After some google searching, I found some results that tied to having an HP printer, some Nvidia network connection... But alas, I had none of those things. On start up, I checked my resource monitor to try to catch anything weird, all I saw were alot of svchosts and pagefile/windows stuff.

Here's a screenshot of the resource monitor and the network icon thingy.

Also, are you connecting via wireless nic or via cables? What is you connection speed?
And when you say cable router, do you mean the router and cable modem are combined in one?
If you transfer files directly from one computer to the other is it also slow?

We have 2 Compaq NT 4.0 servers connected to about 20 PCs (mostly
Win 2000-PRO & XP-PRO) via 100MB CAT5 cable and 2 unmanaged
switches. Our network performance is incredibly slow. Example: our
tape backup, which used to back up 22GB in a couple of hours, now
can't even back up a much smaller 400MB backup job overnight.

Our servers seem fine. When doing anything on them locally, it is
fast. Only over the network do things slow down.

Our outside IT company wants to install additional hard drives in a
server with a RAID 5 setup, and go to Windows 2000 or 2003 Server
O/S. I'm willing to try this but I get the impression he doesn't
know for sure this will fix the problem.

The network seems to have slowed down over time. It didn't get
instantly slower at once.

Any ideas about what is wrong, how to diagnose it, and what to do
about it?
