Google for the Win7 TCP Window setting. I heard it can mess up internet speeds and I *have* had it affect my internal network dramatically. I just disable the setting.

It's a simple command you run, then you restart. It was made to help with high-bandwidth high-latency connections, so it shouldn't hurt anything unless you got a dish for internet.
