I have a client that is running a server 2008 R2 acting as file\print server handles all DNS request.   Internal network is about 10-12 client machines.   Connected to Gigabit switch,  Using a Netgear FVS318N firewall.  Verizon Fios is our ISP 50-25 package.      The employees are complaining of slow internet speeds.  I verified that the Dns SERVER is configured correctly.    I am thinking it is a switch or the Firewall that is slowing them down.  There is no audio streaming.    Sometimes pages take 1-2 mins to load other times you will receive page can not be displayed.   I have done everything but switch out the switch. The firewall is only 2 months old.  Anyone have any other ideas\troubleshooting steps.
