kindly clarify your problem...what part are you experiencing slowness in the network?...what kind of network do you have? it the client/server type? you log in a domain environment? oyu experience the slowness when logging in your domain or when when accessing network resources such as Internet?...

Yep more details please.

Until then.. when in doubt tcpdump & traceroute are your friends.

Oh, if I had money for every time people came to me saying "the network's slow" I'd be a rich man!
The very first thing to do is to ask questions. Who says it's slow? And who isn't seeing slow responses? All applications or just some? All servers or just some? Quite often this sort of exercise, coupled with a bit of logic, will tell you where the problem is.
Secondly, just because they say it's slow don't assume that it's the network. It might be the server or the user's PC
