Network comes to a crawl
Posted on 2012-08-27
Network consists of:
Tried with Linksys router and Buffalo with DD-WRT router
Netgear gigabit switch 8-port
So basically the network will work once you reset the router, it'll work really quick, internet will be awesome, but eventually as the day progresses the network starts to become slower and slower until it's unusable.
We've ruled out the ISP for now.
Swapped a router out already to no avail.
Swapped out the Netgear switch for a new gigabit switch this morning.
The network has 4 computers on it with one of the computers acting as a "server" by sharing a single folder for the other 2 users on the network.
Checked to ensure other computers are spyware/virus free, they are.
What else could cause the network to progressively get worse? Is there any tool I should use to see if something else is bogging down the network or hogging bandwidth?
While the network is completely unusable it seems I am still able to ping via terminal to Google with reasonble response times.
