Different Network Speeds off same switch

Hey all, kinda new to this whole network management thing, but I've been trying to determine why there is a huge discrepenacy in network speed for users on the same switch. I can get about 30mbps while my boss can only get 6 mbps. We are both located on the same switch, and we have different users on the same switch with a similar issue.

I've determined it's not a cable issue by plugging a test machine directly into the switch, and it got the same speed from any port I tried. Tried switching our ports and he's still slow. The ports have exactly the same configuration. The switch doesn't have the most current version of IOS, but I don't think it could be that. Running out of ideas and it'd be great if I could fix this. Any ideas would be great.

The question of how much you are able to consume in terms of bandwidth is limited to what your laptop can take.

Dont think its a problem with duplex settings as you already tried a different workstation on the switchport.

Now what are you monitoring? If its the traffic passing through the port, then try downloading more, reduce the time interval to 30seconds for the port and input command "show int f0/0" as an example. See how Much traffic is going through for a period of time and compare values with your NMS. It should be same

Dont think you have any issues.
