I am running an HP laptop (compaq 2510p) on Windows 7 32 bit that has a gigabit NIC. I am on an internal work network accessing a share on a server that also has a gigabit NIC. When I try to download an installation file I get a max of 200 kb/sec while my co-worker, who is running off of the same local switch in out office, gets at least 3-6 mb/sec transfer. My CPU and RAM stay below 50% and my network monitor in performance monitor stays below 5%. I have tried the same ethernet cable as my co-worker and he has no problems but I still do.
Edit: I am in the IT staff so I have access to change things, but I just started so I am not familiar with the network or how this laptop is set up. It was used by the person I replaced since he left a couple of months ago so I do not know what is left on here. I believe the network is 100MB/s but that my NIC is Gigabit. Basically since I am new to their setup I am just looking for general places to look since my boss is busy and isn't available very much.
Fixed: Turns out it was the card's speed option. It was set to 100MB/s full duplex but changing it to auto negotiate fixed it.
