Slow transfert on home network
 
Got a little issue here. Between my main computer and my home server ( see spec of both in sig ) I got a very low transfert speed. 10-12 Mbps. I`m pretty sure I should have faster speed. My router is a poor WRT54G2. All network settings seems to be ok and driver are up to date on both computer. But I have no idea where the issue is from. Please if you have any idea let me know :)

Important detail : my server is using Windows server 2008 R2 pro.

Is the client wireless? For a G router, 10-12Mbps seems pretty normal to me, depending on distance and wireless interference.

Nop everything is wired.

Your router is only 100Mbps. That's basically the maximum speed you'll see is 10MB/s.

Assuming your PC's have gigabit NIC's in them, then pickup a gigabit switch and you'll see vast improvements in your speeds.

damn to used to corporate stuff -_- shame to my dad. I`m used that 100 mbps router give 70/80 mbps transfer rate :( I'll try to save some money to get a Gbit switch. But if I just put a switch in the router will I get better speed?

You can also find gigabit routers for pretty good prices. The TP-Link TL-WR1043ND comes to mind. DD-WRT capable as well.

you will get aroung 10 MB/s with a 100 Mbps switch or router and aroung 80 MB/s with a 1 Gbps switch

That's not normal, and you DONT need a new switch.

Try this:

In short: Windows 7 network throttling should be disabled, its helped me in more than one case.

I would try it Cmet but your link lead me nowhere?

we need to clarify

did you mean 10 Mbps or 10 MByte a second

there is a difference

when the file is transferring what does it say its transferring at ?

if it says 10-12 MB / sec

then you are at your max pretty much

if its just over 1 mb/sec, then yes something is wrong


i ask cause ppl use Mbps and MBps as if they are the same thing, but they are not
