Database Not Responding

I created a database and placed it on a shared network where a typical day sees two users entering data into forms that each update the same table. They have both complained of this taking a long time, errors out, and/or get a "database not responding" message. In researching this I thought I understood this type of activity could support 30-40 users before seeing these types of issues. Am I off with this expectation or is there possibly a common error I have made that is causing this? Any feedback is extremely appreciatiated and thanks in advance.

Well you would need to split the DB and each user to have their own front end. Have you done that.?

Admittedly, I did not. I will research that and address. Thanks for your time/feedback.
