I have no idea what a "line booster" is.

If there are other similarly configured workstations on the same network that are NOT experiencing this problem, then it's probably a misconfiguration on that one workstation. What that misconfiguration might be is anyone’s guess since there’s so little to work with here. But the first thing I would do is use IPCONFIG and compare its TCP/IP configuration to 2-3 other computers that are functioning normally.

To generate a TCP/IP dump,

Go to Start->Run, type "cmd" (no quotes), and hit enter. In the command window, type "ipconfig /all > temp.txt" (no quotes) and post the file's contents here.

You don't "line boost" an ethernet connection. How long is the cable? Ethernet should be good for 100 meters. If it's not well wired & you could be having packet loss.

Are other things slow to that PC too, such as file transfers, or just logon?
