We have a single Windows Server 2008 64bit with SQL 2008 R2 installation for SharePoint 2010 Enterprise.
I've enabled the search services so the search query is returning results. However the time it takes to resolve is too long, anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. The collection is small - about 10 team sites with a few documents for testing. We expect search results to take about 2 seconds but cannot figure out what could cause the query or index to bottleneck or perform so poorly.
Any thoughts? We have no add-ons, just out of the box features.

The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:01:59.9931505. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.
