We have one member server (windows 2008 R2) that when we check its upload speed is a fraction of what it should be, all the other computers in the network have almost the same speed downloading or uploading like it should be. Speeds are download 9.6 download 2.0. This Server is a VMWare virtual machine. Can someone help to get it to normal upload speed? I will really appreciate it.

I disabled the e100 NIC and added another VMXNET3 card but the speed is the same; I got 9.04 download and 1.57 upload. Any ideas?

Hi,
what is you VMware product ? ESXi I suppose.. Please give us the version too if you can.
Do  you have Traffic shaping enabled on your vSwitch or VM port group ?
Is there other VM connected on the same VM port group on this ESXi ?

also, what are you uploading/downloading against?  Are you just using speedtest?

The problem is resolved: We had an Application called Dexis for X-Rays, all records are kept on a file server the problem was it was taking over 5 minutes to retrieve the records and when we made a speed test the upload speed was very slow. I restarted the Esxi machine and all went back to normal.

check your physical port on physical switch for errors!
