At least not directly.
If you are running a 'heavy load' app (or multitasking) with a 'small' amount of ram, the lan might have to wait for the OS to get around to it

the speed of the lan is normally much lower than the speed the pc can handle the transmissions

Reasons for a slow LAN can include RAM in Workstations. Solutions would be:
" Upgrade the amount of RAM.
" Replace with a higher speed RAM.
" Ensure the available RAM exceeds the minimum required for all applications.
" Increase the size of the virtual memory.
