New Network Is Slow
Posted on 2004-08-24
I have just installed a new P4 2.8 server into the office using raid 1
We use 602 lan freeware software, have 3 workstations currently connected.
All users have their own logins, e-mails are directed using the services on 602Lan, there are no complicated features being used on 602 lan and the cpu usage on the server generally remains at less than 5%
the workstations however are generally duron 1000 - athlon xp 2200, they run windows 2000 Pro and use office 2000 pro. The workstations also use Norton 2003/4 antivirus.
the office is only about 8 * 8 metres and the longest cables are about 25 foot.
MS Outlook crashes,
Saving and opening documents takes about 10 seconds
printing is slow
and generally performance is slow...............
I can perhaps consider removing norton from the workstations as I know this requests a scan every 3 seconds and did cause my home pc to run slower. So maybe McAfee V8 is good?
