I have a website confirgured for our lan. Running iis witha website on port 10 . I can see the website properly and fast on the browserr from client machines but when i try to use frontpage to do editiing of files . It takes a lot of time, which shouldnt be the case since its a local network. Everytime i try to open a directory or page it says loading 192.xx.11.xx. loading web ... or retrieving web. My website is around 65000 pages. And i have set the performance options to cache 50000 document (in memory cache) . And wierd part is .. sometimes ... it works fine and fast and suddenly gets slower.

Try disabling any anti-virus software first.

I would also clear your cache in IE.

If the entire site is set up as a FP web, I would change that too (unless it's absolutely necessary).

I would also check into eliminating some of those "65000 pages".  I would also recommend using more ASP or .NET, a database, layers, or anything to have 1 page perform the same funciton as 5-10 pages.

Try also splitting your website up into subwebs so that there's not such a huge amount of files being accessed each time you open parts of it for editing.  
Every time you update your site, frontpage goes through and updates every _vti file in your web/subweb so segmenting it makes it a little more manageable and quicker to update.

Thnx guys for the responses. But if the size is the case, then the machine on which the site is hosted works perfectly fine from frontpage web i.e http://192.168.xx.xx/  no delay whatsoever.

you're talking about delivering content via http vs authoring content via webdav... they're functionally different and the latter is what frontpage editing is doing.  What we're suggesting is breaking it down into manageable chunks so that authoring doesn't stretch available resources.

I should have framed that line better... i meant to say i am authoring from the machien where the site is hosted(by the way of adding a web on frontpage and not locally i.e e:/sitefoler/) and it doesnt take much time on that machine.. i just want to confirm if its a network problem or this does happen on frontpage over network. One solution i found was to not use a frontpage web on client machine and directly open the drive where the content resides.. this works fine... but ppl complain of some images and styles not applying.Morever i have just joined this org. and the employees say the frontpage was working excellent b4 now it takes time to load...

ok - slow links (and obviously, server load) will also make a difference so check you don't have any network issues between client and server.
I'm not sure what version of frontpage you're running but if it's 2000+, try going to http://yourservername/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll and running a "recalculate" followed by a "check server health".  If you've got any slightly unhealthy sites, this should sort them out.

do you know what version of frontpage you're running? (and you did change the "yourservername" bit didn't you? - just checking).  If you're using 2000+ you might have an event logged in event viewer to tell you what's going on with the "specified module" issue.
Earlier versions can be accessed by getting on the server and using internet service manager console - right click on the frontpage web and the click "check server extensions".

I'm guessing you're running FrontPage Extensions 2002 on Windows Server 2003 - if that's the case, this is what worked for me:

Log in to the server and launch "Administrative Tools"
Open up "Microsoft SharePoint Administration"
Choose to administer the FrontPage web you're dealing with
Choose to Change Configuration Settings
Un-check the box at the bottom of the screen that asks you to "log authoring actions" and click submit.
