Help,

I am having trouble with the eMac at the moment and I don't really know how to diagnose the problem or fix it. The problem is when I am transfering files from a network share to the eMac its very very slow (350 mb file about 6 hours over cat5 network?) I have opened the Activity Monitor and the network and disk activity graphs seem to peak out just when I am typing this (no files moving atm).

Above the network activity graph it says 161 KB
Above the disk activity graph it says 1.77 MB

Is this wrong?

We'll I figured it out. I was of course stupid enough to think it was the eMac. It was infact the computer the file was shared on. It had a dodgy home made cat 5 cable joined with another cat 5 cable.
