I have a wireless network with 2 desktop hooked up wired, and one laptop that's wireless. Accessing files on the desktop with xp installed is quick and transfers files at around 5-7mb/s. When I connect to my main pc with windows 7 on it, file transfer is EXTREMELY slow and almost always stutters and freezes. I've tried removing the drive from 'shared' and then adding it again, reinstalling my ethernet driver, swapping ethernet ports on the back of my router, and resetting it altogether. Still a slow transfer speed.I use workgroup all around, for xp and for 7.
Just relised this problem after trying to leech some stuff from a friend from his pc at a lan My connection seems to go REALLLY slow. Heres a pic nobody else is file copying and its the same from every pc.
I have 4 systems in my network1)Amd Phenom based HTPC- wired LAN- win764bit ultimate2)Laptop-Wired LAN/Wireless -win764bit home basic3)Work Laptop-Wired LAN/Wireless win764bit ultimate4)Atom based storage server-Wireless only win7 32bit ultimateThe issue I am facing is really really slow data transfer speeds from one system to another 100-200Kbps!!whereas my download speeds are in upwards of 500 kbps with a 4Mbps connection.All the systems run various versions of windows 7 and are part of the same homegroup.the Wireless router I use is this And also have Kaspersky internet security 2012 on all the systems, with the firewall set to recognize my home network as a trusted network
2-Qualcomm Atheros AR938x wireless cards, both connected on 5Ghz network at 450 Mbps.Router-E4200, latest firmware, the only 5Ghz network in the area
One PC has a drive bender drive pool on it that I'm trying to read/write from. Testing the pool w/ crystal disk mark on the local pc shows fast speeds (650 MB/s read, 67 MB/s write), so I drive bottlenecks aren't the issue.
Connecting at 450 Mbps i would expect to see something like at least 200 Mbps actual speeds, or is this off? Using LAN Speed test I'm getting 41 write and 52 read. Not great
My work has a main office and a backup office which is off site. What I am trying to do is copy a folder from one computer at the backup site to another computer at the backup site, all while sitting at my computer in the main office. Let's say the two computers at the backup site are called comp1 and comp2.Whether I use Windows Explorer, or .net VB script, or XCOPY from the command prompt, if I try to copy \comp1c_drivefolder to \comp2c_drivefolder from my computer then it takes an extremely long time - around 5 hours for 2Gb of data.
However, if I Remote Desktop into comp1, and from that machine copy C:folder to \comp2c_drivefolder then it only takes 5 minutesI can only assume that when I try to copy the folder from my computer remotely that it is transferring the data from comp1 -> my computer -> comp2, and with the computers being at different sites it's very slow. What I need to know is if I can do this remote copy using VB without the data going via my computer, i.e. straight from \comp1 to \comp2.
I thought this was the way Windows handled copying between networks anyway, i.e. straight from one to the other, my only explanation for the terrible speed is that it is going via my computer. I'm writing a basic folder-backup program in VB and would REALLY like to cut that 5 hour transfer time down to the 5 minutes I know the network can do
just bought a WD my book world edition 2 NAS and have been trying to tranfer files wirelessly to it but a 700mb file is taking 25mins to trans. my book is connected by ethernet to netgear dgnd3300 router and my laptop has sitecom 300n usb doongle.is there some sort of setting i've missed or is this speed normal?
I'm having very slow file transfer speeds between the 2 computers on my network. One is a gigabit pc wired (cat6) to the e3000. The other is a wireless N laptop. Both computers running Win7. Speeds are like 1.5 - 2 MB/s. when I connect the laptop to the router with a cable (cat6) I get proper high speed. Trying to figure out if it's a problem with the router or windows or what. Speedtest.net says I'm getting 16 MB/s DL wirelessly to my laptop. Shouldn't wireless N be capable of higher speeds than 1.5 MB/s?? Tests are done approx 10 feet from the router.

I am a sales engineer, so I use my desktop and laptop all the time. When on road, I sync my desktop with my laptop using a program called ViceVersa. This a very good, reliable syncing program that I have been using for over 10 years ( with upgrades ).
The program allows me to sync my desktop and laptop. The program also shows the data transfer rate during the syncing process. The typical data transfer speed is between 5MB/s and 10MB/s with sometimes up to 12MB/s. A typical sync between the computers will take about 3 - 5 minutes at the ~ 10 MB/s transfer rate using ethernet CAT6 cable inteface. At about 11pm last Tuesday,there was a Windows update on both my Vist and Win7 computers. On wednesday, I went to do a typical sync. The system has dramatically slowed to 59KB/s max. This is about 150 times slower than 5-10MB/s that I was used to for so many years. My typical sync was now taking about 2 hours....unacceptable ! I have tried everything to figure out what is going on and how to fix it but nothing has worked.
Then I tried to see what would happen if I disconnected my ethernet cable ( between the router and the laptop only ) and just sync using the wireless network. With that configuration, the transfer rate is ~ 2.5 MB/s which is not great but is much, much better than 59KB/s. I actually do not know what a reasonable wireless transfer rate should be since I never really did it before due to the faster speed of the wired configuration.
This is just a LAN. Only connecting my Desktop to my Laptop via the Cisco router.
How I can get my wired configuration back up to the 5-10MB/s transfer rate that it once was?
I have recently purchased a Cisco E4200 to replace my D-LINK DIR-655, which I thought was defective because I was getting slow wirless file transfer speed, regardless of setting, location and client.Using the E4200, when I transfer a file from a PC to another, both connected at 300mb on the 2.4ghz band, the file transfer rate reported by windows 7 and networx is from 2MB/s to 3.5MB/s. I think those transfer rates are not acceptable. Is that a good assumption ? I would expect something in the range of 10MB/s (which is what I get with a cheap dlink router, wired)
I also had great difficulty finding a channel. I had to try them all one-by-one as the auto channel selection made my PCs connect at 130mb.The E4200 is setup as follows:
-WPA-Personal -Channel 5 -802.11n only
I have tried 3 different computers with different network adapters and they all underperform (IMO..).There are no other wireless networks in my area.I also took the E4200 to my office which is very crowed. Every single channel is occupied by several wireless networks. I get a file transfer speed PC to PC of about 2MB.I basically could have kept my DIR-655 as the speeds are identical.
Ive been doing everything I can to try to enhance transfer speeds between my home server and desktop pc. [code]
Just drag and drop copying on my network, a 7gb file started at 20mbps and immediately dropped to ~11mbps where it stays.I took the time to run cat 6, bought a decent router, and (2) intel NICs, I feel like I should be getting much better transfer speeds than this.
Im having a problem transferring files to a shared network folder (my server's folder), its transferring files at ~20KB/s Thing is, I can copy files from the server to my computer at 90MB/s.I can also copy from my computer to my brothers computer also at 90MB/s.And copy from my brothers computer to the server at 90MB/s.But only 20KB/s from my computer to the server.My server is running WHS2011 by the way and my computer and brothers computer is running Windows 7.My entire network is wired and tested with a 1Gbit connection. and im using a Linksys WAG320N router.

We have a network between two locations. WAN is 100 Mbps MPLS provided by service provider. There is a FWSM module on core switches. Problem we are facing is FTP file transfer between two servers across WAN link never crosses 20 Mbps. Link is 100 Mbps. However if we do parallel file tranfers each transfer is 20 Mbps . But we dont get transfer rate above 20 Mbps in a single FTP session. Is there any bottle neck where traffic is getting restricted.Traffic between two mservers passes through 100Mbps MPLS WAn link, 6500 core switch and FWSM module in switch.
Ok I have 8 computers 2 computer will have a camera attached to it importing photos as they are being shot. (2 photo stations) Trick is I need to transfer all photos taken in real time to the remaining 6 computers at the same time. What is the best way to do this and what software to export all photos to the six computers. I'm running windows 7. I set this up as a home group but it was really slow. When I tried to use a network printer it would freeze the network? I need it to monitor new files as the photos come in. Also all photos also need to be copied to 6 different computers so guest could access their photo on any computer.This is how I currently have it set up. I have 2 Computers with cameras attached that takes the photos and sends them to PC1 (My Server Computer) The server computer also has the network printer attached. Each photo is about 300K-500K size.
Different photo is transfer every 15 seconds. The server computer is also connected to the other 5 Computers. The guest goes to one of the computers, scans a card and their photo pops up which is located on the server computer, they also have an option to print the photo. The problem is when the guests scans their card the photo is very slow to pull up ( about 15-20 seconds ) Second is when they hit print it freezes up sometimes for up to 2 minutes. I connected as a home group and first did connection wireless Then connect everything through a Ethernet cord which speed it just a little not much. Questions Do I need a better server computer?
I'm having problem with slow wireless trasnfer speeds. 129kb/s slow. So here is my set up. Desktop with a 100MB nic card, running windows 7 ultimate, connected to linksys wrt320n running dd-wrt. then i have my laptop running windows 7 ultimate, connected to my wireless network.
I have tried coping files in the homegroup and outside of the homegroup.
i am running windows server 2008 with the hyper V role installed.i have installed windows 7 Professional as a guest OS. assigned 2 GB of Ram to the machine. the point behind the VM is to virtualize my FTP server and incase a format is required i have the VM file on my 2nd partition, host OS on another. i use Cerberus FTP Server on the Win7 OS. i configured the server to accept SFTP and TLS connections. on the host OS i installed Fire FTP and File Zilla, both Clients will at max download a 4 MB file at 64 KB/Sec .. i have seen both jump to about 80 KB but was only a split second and never held.. however if i login without SFTP and transfer over standard protocol, i download at 1 MB/sec. which is my normal speeds. would this be only to the encryption process?, in the Cerberus Server there are options to adjust download speeds, i have left it default, and altered it to allow its max configuration. My ISP is not limiting any connections that shouldnt be.
i'm overal content with the router. But i bought myself an ipad and an app to go with it,what it does it, you access your computer from your laptop. You can than transfer files onto the ipad.But the max speed while transfering is 4150kbps, kinda slow imo.
I am using a DIR 825 and I experience slow data transfer speed within my internal network under the wireless connection (2.4 Ghz), 2 Mbs. I can videostream from the internet OK, no problems there, but when I want to transfer data between two external HDD (NAS devices) it can get as slow as 2 Mbs.
im experiencing very slow transfer rates averaging 600 kb/s when transfering files. my PC has a compatible dwa-552 card and both the router and card have latest drivers / firmware. i have various changes on the router and to no avail. all devices PC / laptops running N @ 20 mhz / channel 11. i can see 2 other networks but very low signal using diff channels.what setting might i be overlooking in the router that might cause this slow trans rate? incidentally, when i transfer .jpg or .pdf files the transfer improves to 2.5 mb/s. however, when i transfer a folder containing subfolders with diff file types the trans rate drops sharply to 600 kb/s.
I have 4 - WAP 321's in an office all connected to a POE gigabit switch. Each WAP shows connected at 1GB but when I am sitting within a couple feet of the WAP and attempt to transfer a 972MB file it takes around 9 minutes to complete. speeding this up? All 4 AP's are setup as a cluster as well.
Anu network monitoring software that would monitors constant network connectivity? I am working with a company who uses an Access database that checks members in and out of a gym. 6-8 people work in the database at any given time. Several times a day the users will get a network error and they have to force the database to close. Sometimes this happens to all of the users and sometimes to just certain ones. I believe the problem lies with the database (due to poor programming) but I want to monitor the network connectivity to see if and when the network connection is dropped and determine if that corresponds with when users begin seeing network errors in the database.
I am having incredibly slow connection while transferring files using file sharing.I have the below hardware:
108Mbps TPLINK Wireless Router TL-WR642G 108Mbps TPLINK Wireless Access Point acting as repeater Laptops accessing internet and folder sharing enabled for local file transfer
Transfering of files excessively slow (after playing around with the settings was able to get 500KBps). I have set all wireless adapters on the laptops to 802.11g only.Tried setting the router and access point to both 54Mbps and 108Mbps 802.11G only as well as b/g.
I recently switched from an older 10/100 linksys to this gigabit router from D-Link. However, when I try to transfer files from one computer to another on the LAN, the file transfers are ridiculously low, right around 16KB/s. I have CAT6 cable for all connections, but am baffled by what could cause such a slow speed. I'm trying to transfer files from my desktop (win7) to my server (Windows Home Server 2011).
I have the above router, but I have noticed that the USB Transfer speed is very poor. I have a WD External HD plugged into the router and id i transfer filed from my server which is hardwired to the router I only get a transfer speed of about 2.5MB/s. For a USB device I was kind of thinking I would be getting a minumm of atleast 50-60MB/s.
I currently had 6 WAP321 setup in our work environment on 2 floor building as Single Point Setup cluster. When I do a 470MB ISO files transfer between the server and the laptop, the speed is very slow, rate at 130KBs and sometime it go up to 30Mbps.Is there anyway to tweek teh WAP to get FULL speed of wireless all the time?
My transfer speed from HDD which connected to linksys e4200 reach max 2,3MB/s how it is possible to watch fullHD movie if its required minimum 5MB/s? Maybe I should make some adjustments? HDD-WD My Passport 750Gb Also connection speed max reach 144mb/s?? how to make 300mb/s ? wifi adapter is Intel advanced N + WiMax 6250 AGN last driver installed, also E4200 last firmware installed 220.127.116.11 all settings by default Max download speed 75Mb/s by utorrent but provider gives 100Mb/s By cable its ok, max speed 100Mb/s as giving provider
Very slow transfer speeds problem with this router. When I put the router in the system, my transfer speeds drop from 12 Mbps to 3 Mbps. I've updated the firmware to the latest version but that doesn't work. The most frequent suggestion is to upgrade the firmware which I have already done.
I have a home network running on a Linksys WAG320n and i have attached to it a WD MyBookLive (w Gigabit Ethernet). I am connected on the network via my Dell with a Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGN. I am not able though to connect on N range. I have installed the latest drivers from Intel but nothing changed. When i try to copy a file from my computer to the WD Network drive the transfer rates are very slow. I get Max 2MB/s - 3MB/s while if i connect my computer with a wire the speed goes up by 3-4 times more.
E4200 with an external hard drive WD My Book (1TB) connected to the router via USB.Desktop PC (Windows 7) connected to router via Ethernet cable.Laptop PC (Windows 7) connected to router via wireless connection.I wanted to create a central media (videos/pictures) file on the external hard drive connected to the router. However, the transfer rate is terribly slow. Interestingly, it is 50KB/second when copying from the Desktop (via Ethernet) and 1.6Mbps when copying from the Laptop via wireless.
[code] Wireless transfer from HTPC to Windows Home Server peak at 8-9 MB/sec. Note that my WHS and my Winn7 Gaming rig are both on the same physical switch, but the same exact wireless file transfer from my HTPC to Windows 7 gaming rig hits consistent 35-40 MB/sec, 4x faster and which is what I expect. Wired transfer of same 4GB test file directly from gaming rig to WHS tops over 100MB/sec so it is not a problem with the WHS writing to disk or wiring. So the question is, what could possibly be bottle-necking my upload from HTPC only to the Home Server? I have tested a Netgear R6300 with the same results as the Asus router.
I've just bought a Synology DiskStation DS412+ and put 2 x 3TB Western Digital Red drives in it, set up in RAID 0. It's currently plugged in to my gigabit Netgear switch.I created a user with full permissions on the NAS, created a share, mapped a drive on my Windows 7 PC (also gigabit ethernet) and tried copying some files, but I'm getting painfully slow transfer speeds (< 40KB/s - yes, kilobytes, it's not a typo!
Does anyone have any ideas why it'd be so slow? There's loads of reports online of people getting > 80MB/s from this NAS.
I've copied files from this PC to my MacBook Pro in the past and got decent enough speeds so it shouldn't be an issue with the NIC on this PC, or (hopefully) the Netgear switch it's going through.
