LAN settings for Windows 7
You can easily configure the LAN setting for Windows 7 and for that you would have to follow certain steps. First you would have to click on the 'Start' button then in the ;Search programs and files' text box you would have to type 'secpol.msc.' Then double click on the found icon followed by clicking on 'Local policies.' From the list of policies, find the network security policy and double click on it.
The switch ports which connect your system to switches sometimes would cause certain connection problems if the LAN settings are not proper. So you would have to connect your system to different switch port so as to ensure that a switch port is not causing any slow LAN performance. You should ensure that the new switch port is on the same VLAN and it does not have any MAC address level security applied to it.
If you are experiencing any delay between two computers in a network, it might be due to the faulty LAN settings. To resolve this issue, you would have to replace your path leads between the computer and switch. You would have to replace the patch between the panel and the switch if the switch is connected to structured cabling.
