Network speed a factor in shared database with FMP?

Post

     Just curious if anyone knows how much network traffic is involved in say a sort of 5000 records between a master PC running FMPro (not server) sharing to a slave. Is a 5mb internet connection between master and slave going to yield same results if you had the machines hooked up on a home gig network?

     While I suspect network speed between master and slave does matter to some extent, I don't think it would explain how this 5000 record sort on a local machines that takes 10 seconds would take 90 seconds over a 5mb internet connection.

     Even simple scroll downs of records in list mode on the internet connected machines causes the slave to go into  a spinny rainbow circle (mac client) where as local network = no delays.
