I have a toshiba tecra s1 that has very slow network transfers.  The rest of the network transfers fast!  The network utilization is only 2%.

    Accepted Solution

    - Bad card?
    - Try a new cable (or a shorter cable).
    - Try a different connection port (one you know is working well).
    - Disable AV software
    - Run a spyware scanner
    - If the network doesn't use Auto, check if your card is in the correct mode (half-duplex/full-duplex)

    Those would be my first line of tests.

    What stengelj said.

    2% throughput is a classic indicator that the duplex is not negotiated correctly.

    Out of curiosity -- what is the make/model of the hub/switch you've plugged that tosh into..?

    It was on full duplex.  I set it to auto and it fixed the problem.
