There are several things which would help with the answer:

  • What browser are you using?
  • What firewall and proxy are in use?
  • How many devices are on the network?
  • Have you patched all operating systems and programs?
  • What other programs are functioning at the same time?

    These will all have a bearing on the answer. I would suggest patching everything first. Please respond with the answers to these questions and I will be happy to help you out.
