slow interenet connection on machine that is not on domain

We have installed a server on a network of 5 machines. Two of the macines are connected via the server though are not on the server domain. The Internet download speed is around 10kps?? I have changed the newtork card and done trojan/spam check etc I can not find a soloution as to why I am getting such slow download speed on a 8mb adsl line. The other machines I get around 6mb. The only conclusion I can come to is the fact that the machine is not on the network domain die to it being a windows xp media edition. Anyone help please thanks

Right click, "Network Connections" select "properties".
Right click your "LAN connection" select "properties".
By your network adapter description there is a "configure" button.
Select the "configure" button and go to the "Advanced tab". Where it says "Speed & Duplex"select "auto".

IanThCommented:
yes the advanced stuff is diferent as they probably use diferent nic controllers chips or are diferent ages as nic chips adnvances just like all it equipment
you should find on all nics linkspeed that should be set to auto or autonegotiate

brokenwindowAuthor Commented:
i have a netgear DG834PN , not sure about the switches

CoreyMacCommented:
What is you plug one of the slow machines directly into the back of the router instead of using the switches?

Which devices are currently plugged in where?
0
 
brokenwindowAuthor Commented:
i cant beacuse the machine is upstairs, machines are spread in office, going through the wall which connects to switches and then connects to router

CoreyMacCommented:
Do all the machines connected to the same switches perform at the same speed?
0
 
brokenwindowAuthor Commented:
none of the machine perform at the same speed but are all around 6-7mb download, the one upsatirs is download 712kpbs
0
 
CoreyMacCommented:
So are there two machines with a performance problem or just one?

Where are the two machines?  (I am asking if those two have any similarities like both attached to a remote switch, both in the same upstairs office and so share cables to the main switch, etc...)

the one upstairs is the only one with the speed problem. the rest seem ok. There is another machine downstairs that is not on the domain but that machine doesnt seem to have spped problems though it is with dows xp home edition not media.
