Hi Uaskme39,

To know the reason why network is running slow you need to have a network performance monitor software that can detect your network traffic. We can find lots of open source network management tools in the net. Like Zenoss core, Hyperic, Nagios and many more. To know why the first two days of the week the network is running very slow.

The same thing happened to our network before and we found out that there are more non work related websites browsed than work related. So we tried port forwarding software to limit access of browsing non work related websites. Hope this helps.
