Slow Performance

Slow performance is sometimes caused by the server's network speed.

To check the server's network speed:

  1. In Windows, open Control Panel > Network Connections.
  2. Right-click Local Area Connection and select Properties.
  3. Click Configure.
  4. On the Advanced tab, select Link Speed & Duplex in Property (on some machines it is called Speed & Duplex, Speed, Duplex, or Media Type).
  5. Make sure Value is set to the same speed as your server.
