Hi Steve,
 My suggestion is to manually set the adaptor speed to gigabit if
you are on a Gig network.  In the properties tab of the adaptor force the link
speed to "1000" or "Auto 1000" rather than just plain Auto.

I have found this setting needs to be set on the Broadcom network adaptors in 
the Dell
Optiplex range.
