network connection error

POS program is running slow at times.  Program has a main station with a database that all workstations access through LAN. The main station is responsive in Windows and all other functions, just slow when running POS program (sometimes).  Machine exceeds hardware requirements for program. Installed a new 100MB switch.

 I think it may be the network cable.

I see the entry below in event viewer.  Does this mean it is losing and then regaining network connection?  That would definitly cause the slowness since all workstations need to see main for database to function.  Any help is appreciated.

This message is just simply telling you that you have a network connection. If you connection was lost and restored you would see this message over and over again through out the day.

Look at the NIC itself to see if Power Management is checked.
control Panel\network\Local Area connection\Properties\configure and uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" on the Power Management Tab.
One of the dumber things MS has done.

cja-tech-guy,
That is one of the first things on my checklist when rebuilding XP Pro computers.  That and turn off hibernate and set Sytem Standby to Never.
