1. replace that linksys switch with something more geared towards business class (something from Netgear (prosafe) or HP Procurve)

2. Slow is this internal lan network speed or access to the internet. Also there is no harm in mixing gigabit with 10/100. Also i would check the cables to make sure they are in good condition.

3. Finally i would also check your firewall to make sure it not doing some funky on your network.

If the speed complaint is due to a slow access to a database it may not be the network at all. It could be the server. SQL databses are fairly intesive and benefit from a RAID 10 Configuration with lots of spindles. (ie disks)
and now for something completely different
