We have 2 Linksys switches SRW224G4 and the network is very slow through them and web gui impposible to use.
Will call Linksys, but just looking to see if anybody else have experienced same issues, if its a known issue or we just been unlucky with them.

Sounds like you may have a Duplex Mismatch.  There's a known problem on 100 Mb ports and they have to be set the same on both sides, either auto/auto or fixed 100/full. If you have them set with auto on one side and fixed on the other, the auto end will come up half duplex and cause problems.

Look at the Ethernet stats on all of the ports see if you are getting collisions.

I will try to check, which is hard because web gui never loads or i have to unplug all computers and reboot the switch just leave my laptop on.

This is remote office not critical so we bought these linksys switches for them, but I guess we should have invested in something better.  
In another remote offices we started putting 3com 3CBLSG48 cheap switches, seems to work much better, GUI loads and performance much better.

Thank you for suggesstion i will take a look at port configs.
