Re: 1 PC on network very slow

try replacing the Ethernet cable first.

If you are using a patch panel replace both the cable to the machine from the wall and the one from the patch panel to the switch.

I would put an entirely different machine where this slow machine is and see the issue reoccurs with the other machine.

If it does not see if the slow machine still shows slow in the other location. (assuming this is an office etc.)

Otherwise just try a different port on the switch if replacing the cable does not fix it.


ASUS had new firmware available - updated and QoS 1000% better.
Only issue was that firmware has been changed so drastically that saved config file was practically useless and it took forever to set up the network with all MAC filters, forced DHCP addressing and NAT settings before I could even touch on QoS. But, all is done thanks for the input Aranarth.

Lesson learned - when troubleshooting never blindly believe that a device is doing what it is set to.
