Question networking issue

sponsored links

I currently have three computers networked together in an office environment. We are running a specialized program (scheduling, billing, etc.)on one of them that is essentially the "[B]server[/B]". The other two also have the same software installed, but access data from this main computer and are basically "[B]workstations[/B]". Recently, the workstations have been DIRT slow accessing data on the server computer. I talked to the company's tech support and determined that it isn't the software on the workstations that is the problem, but rathr something is wrong regarding data flowing along the network itself. The router we are using is a NETGEAR WGR614. Internet access, file and printer sharing is fine on the workstations (and server PC). Also, certain ports have been opened up on the workstation as instructed by the company's tech department. Windows firewall has been turned off as well. Is there anyway of determining what the problem is and how to correct it?

Workstation running slow? Any particular time of the day? You don't have any backup jobs running or database upgrades or Anti Virus Updates running at the time?

Actually, I just figured out today what the problem apparently was. The workstations that are running slow has remote software that seemed to be messing things up. It had software installed, but when I removed it, it now works fine. I'm gonna keep it off for a few days to make sure & then maybe try to reinstall it. I guess something got corrupted and messed the whole system up.
