What are good speeds?
I just setup a home server. Running WHS 2011. I was just wondering what good write speeds are?
I am running the Server on a cat6 directly connected to the router and i am transferring files from my laptop at about 8MB/s is this suitable or should i expected better. I am a nub at this stuff
That depends if your laptop supports Gigabit LAN. My hunch is that it does not.
The server is connected to Linksys WRT-160N which is 100mbps not a gigabit. Could that be the reason why i am getting such slow transfer speeds. Is it worth it to upgrade the router to a gigabit or should i just get a gigabit switch and just use the router for wireless?
With fast ethernet, you can't acheive speeds higher than 12 MBps (100 Mbit). If you have some money, then a gigabit switch would be a welcome upgrade!
Edit: Also, keep in mind that your speeds may be limited by your storage, not your network (but at 8 MB/s I highly doubt it's your storage :haha:)
yeah it take me 6 mins to transfer a 2GB file... i was think i would get around 45mbps. I just not sure if i should buy a gigabit switch or router
and even which one to buy. Any suggestions
Depends what you want to spend. You can find a 5 port unmanaged GB switch for under $30. Most routers that have GB ports are $60 or more. The one I usually recommend is the Asus RT-N16, but it's 90 plus tax. ASUS RT-N16 4 Port Gigabit Wireless N Router With 2x USB 2.0 Ports - ASUS - RT-N16
I am thinking this.
D-LINK DGS-1005G 5-PORT Unmanaged Gigabit Switch - D-Link - DGS-1005G
I can go from my modem to gigabit switch and then use 1 port from the switch to my linksys.
I think this is my cheapest opinion for now!
If you see any problems please say
asus rtn16 here and with gigabit i can pull 30mbps across my network
Go with Asus or TP-Link stay away from the box store D-Link and Linksys
just ordered the Asus RT-N16..
thanks for the help guys
