Slow network copies on high speed network

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%.

- 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..?

Cheers.

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