i tried changing the mtu size by lowering it but  still the speed of my application reading its database is horribly  slow...wins is working..i could map drives using hostnames already...i  could even do large file transfer but it really take some time to  finish it...the speed of the other side is 768kbps and the other line  is 512 kbps...

First determine whether WINS/lookups are the problem or not. Use ping with various packet sizes. try
tcp clamping. try changing the mtu on the ethX interfaces involved.
