plug directly into you modem or IAD and see if the speed issues persist.  If no it has to be something on your network.  If yes you may want to include some assistance from you ISP.

if things are slow connecting to a certain server or resource, check the server to make sure there are no hardware issues like HDD errors or perhaps something else that is using all the server resources (check processes in task manager).

Need more info???

What kind of Network???? Do you have SBS or a Server version or is a bunch of machines connected together.  Are they connected to a switch or HUB or just a small router?
