Slow downloading documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a client running PC's with Word 2003 in a workgroup enviroment ( No domain controller or AD).  They are running Windows XP service pack 2 and 3 and using IE 7 and 8.  When they try and download Word documents from a hosted SharePoint 2010 site it takes upward of a minute or two to download the file. 

    The files are around 1 MB in size and they have 3Mbps download speed.

     I have verified the Internet Explorer settings for the site is setup as a "Trusted Site" and the LAN setting under Connections is not checked for "Automatically detect network settings".  Any ideas on where or what to look at next would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance for your attention.
