Hi, can someone take a look at the capture and let me know why so many dup acks and perhaps help me determine why my inside lan is so darn slow? this capture is a file transfer of malware bytes from my machine to my lan file server.

You PC is configured with an MTU size of 1300 bytes, resulting in an MSS of 1260 bytes only. So this would be the first thing to check.
The majority of lost packets is reported by the LAN Server running in VMWare at 192.168.179.6. Given that this is a flat network I'd guess these packets are dropped in the VMWare environment.
That is certainly not the optimum for a flat Ethernet network but obviously it is configured.
will show the actual settings and
could be used to bump this up to the standard ethernet MTU size.
As for the packet drops in VMware I suggest you google on "vmware packet drops" and/or address this issue to a better suitable forum.
