We have an issue in our network that is causing pc's using Windows 7 32 bit to be very slow when browsing a mapped network drive that is on a windows 2003 server.  The issue is present only on Windows 7 32bit pcs and only when connecting to a single windows 2003 server.  

1.  Windows 7 64 bit appears unaffected.
2.  Windows XP appears unaffected.
3.  It appears to only affect connections to a single server.

Looking for ideas to try.

Hi there,

Try running these 2 commands from your CMD prompt and see if that sorts your problem:

netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

also in advanced sharing options in network and sharing center enable 40bit sharing for older systems. It has increased my speeds using the same setup.

Tracked the problem down to an issue with the NIC on the windows 2003 server.  Thanks for the ideas though.
