Our lan is running extremely slow and its my job to make it faster. The infrastructure consists of 1 router for internet access and vpn's. 1 10mbps switch, 1 100mbps switch, 5 dedicated servers for mail, ad, accounts, files, 30 desktops.
All servers have gigabit nic's, all desktops have 100mbps nic's, all cabling is cat5.
Im getting approx 2mbps transfer rate between desktops and servers on the lan which is not good considering all users and desktops are part of a domain.
Would the 10mbps switch be slowing the lan down to this speed on its own, or could there be another possible bottleneck?
Sorry if ive left anything out.
