Network congestion is strange over a home network, there usually is not enough traffic to make a difference unless you are using IPX protocol which is chatty but even then it is unlikely. so going to Gigabit networking may only help but not solve your problem, you can of cores go to gigabit but you must have cat5E or cat6 wire installed. do you happen to have full duplex turned on?
Thanks
Phil

you know it was set to auto sence, so i was guessing it was automaticly set to the highest possible so i reset it to full 100 base tx

so far this seems to be working i am going to continue to monitor it but as of right now it looks like you got it.
