I did have a problem regarding the TCP/IP stack limit that WinXP SP2 imposes. When the limit
was reached, new connections were slow and it became dificult browsing. I solved it by
gradually increasing the limit until at 200 there was no more problems (the default is 10). It´s
worth investigating if this is at least part of your problem. It´s very easy to do that, just go to E
Event Viewer and see if you are getting 4226 event warnings.
