I seem to have alot of traffic on my PC. We have a single subnet. On our network we have our domain server, application server which houses our payroll and our practice management system. We also a wireless network on the same subnet and have banned any use of any type of internet radio and other bandwidth sucking devices that might be used. Our phone system uses IP phones which is the only thing I can think of that would be sucking up alot of the bandwidth. Our performance just seems very slow and sluggish. Is there anyway I can monitor the network via some downloadable software to see what PC is causing the traffic jams, or if it is simply too much on that one subnet for our network to handle. We don't have any fancy switches, just your cheap 200$ jobs. If I should change the subnet, how should I group them, if i should seperate the phone system on its own subnet and break down the medical end on its own subnet and maybe the administrative end on its own too. What are your thoughts and opinions.
Windows 2003 Server and all the machines are XP SP2. We have one NT box on a seperate domain, same subnet though. That houses our email.
