Hey, i am working on implementing a new system for a small business. Whenever we have a single computer load act it will start up right away. But when i put it on a network with even just one extra computer it will slow down drastically. Once it is in it works fine, but it takes about a minute to even show the splash screen. This occurs even if it is just accessing a local database, it seems to be just the fact that its on a network at all. It doesnt matter whether im trying to access my own database over a network or the demo database by default.
I am using windows 7 32 bit, i have them connected through a switch with static ips. I was wondering if my problem was with using a switch instead of a router. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks
