Resolving slow network performance issues in Windows® 7
How do you fix slow performance issues in Windows 7?
Local Area Network (LAN) should have the capacity to handle a large amount of data with minimum delay. Even very large corporate LANs often have 1 to 3 millisecond round trip delays in their response. The human ear can only recognize delays of 125 milliseconds or greater during a phone conversation, when compared to this it will give us an idea about the speed. Anything less than 125 milliseconds is considered an instant response. This reluctance in operation and sluggishness maybe due to various problems and experts strongly believe that the problem is not actually with Windows 7. The sluggishness maybe due to some associated faults with the network matching the efficiency of Windows 7. These problems can be eliminated by following suitable tips to solve the issue.

The issue of sluggishness is not good with browsing, as it requires more data to be handled in a shorter span of time. This issue should be tackled in a proper manner as it deals with serious issue of web pages and downloading. The delay time in opening web pages will increase at a proportional rate of the fault that occurred.
The causes will vary with the type of connection, entry of spyware, viruses and other programs outside factors that affect connection speeds. The main causes for the slow performance are faulty patch leads, faulty physical hardware, overloaded switch, hub connections and half duplex connections. The proper understanding of causes will help the user to fix those problems.
Disabling the auto tuning system will help to improve the data transfer speed over the network. It is good to remove the RDC (Remote Differential Compression) in Windows 7 by going to the Control Panel and Programs and Features and it will speed up the browsing. Removal of IPv6 from network properties and clearing of DNS cache will also help to increase the speed of the network connection. You can also boost the network speed by disabling wireless network and any additional network adapters. It is also possible to modify the link speed and duplex value in network adapter properties, thus enhancing the speed.
