SVN Checkout is slow or completely hangs

I''ve come across several similar issues posted over the last three
years and have tried every remedy suggested.

I have been running the current version of TortoiseSVN (most recently
1.4.8) on Windows XP against a repository on RHEL 64 bit SVN 1.1.4-2
with no problem for 18 months or more. Recently I noticed updates were
taking longer and longer and now am at the point where I cannot check
out anything. The repositories are only 180MBs and 100MBs.

A colleague is using the same setup with no problem but I am at the
point where I can no longer use it. Its that bad.

I have downgraded TortoiseSVN to 1.4.7 to the same version he has.
I've installed SVN 1.4.6 on the PC and get the same "hang" (or slowdown)
so the recommended performance tweaks for TortoiseSVN make no difference.
I''ve upgraded the server SVN to 1.4.6-0.
I've reset my ADSL router.
I've checked the server firewall for blocks.

My net stats show 10 hops with an average between 30 - 60 ms each to the

My broadband is not blistering - I get a 1.1mb/s download and 350kb/s
upload but its not changed and has always been adequate.

I am at a loss what to do.

Is there some weird setting I need to set up on my local NetGear router
or something (although as it used to work and I have not changed
anything I would guess not) ?

I would be very very grateful for some advice.

Regards, Gordon
