I have a network with a 10port Switch that is connected to a wireless router which is connected to DSL. I have 6 Computers connected to this network, 4 via hardwire and 2 via wireless with 2 laptops that come and go via wireless. Long story short our "file server" which is just a computer with a big hard drive has held my files for the last 6 years with no problems. Recently my access to this system slowed down dramatically, I scanned for viruses spy-ware etc and nothing is on either computers or any on the network for that matter. What are some possibilities? Switch getting old? Router getting old? I haven't had to administer a network for years since my job change so I am drawing blanks right now.
