Thread: FileTransfer over lan (wireless)

FileTransfer over lan (wireless)
One computer is connected wirelessly to a Netgear router, the other computer is connected via ethernet. No matter how I try and transfer files (windows itself, FTP, or Direct Connect) it won't go above 300k/s. It usually hovers around 270 k/s.
I think it is the wireless connection but the router has no bandwidth limit and everything is G, which can go up to 54MB
Anyone know why?
PS Computer are about 100ft away from each other signal strenth is "Great"

wait, slow down.
are you saying the speed at which one lan pc is sharing and sending files to the other lan pc?
or are you saying that the wireless laptop is slow at downloading things from limewire, newsgroups, direct connects...etc.
you are confusing me when you say transfer your file, i dont know if you mean transfer your files in the network, or transfer files meaning, downloading from an outside site.
clera that up and we can help.
if you're talking about downloads...you can only download as fast as the remote computer's cap upload speed is.
if you have a 4mbit download, but are downloading or ftp'ing a file from someone with a dial up modem. you'll only get files are 30kb per second. doesnt matter how fast your speed is

Transfering files from one comp to another comp located on the SAME network. Connected to the same router. Just one is wireless and the other is plugged in.Abit AW9D-Max | E6300 | XP-120 | Panaflow 120mm | 2x 1GB G.Skill DDR2-800 | BFG 8800GT | Corsair 650w

What is your link quality? You can have great signal but if there's interference then your link quality will be poor and your link will downgrade speed to compensate. You could try changing channels to find something cleaner if this is the case.
What about wired to wired? Is that also slow?

I have kind of given up on this problem, but just for reference, wired to wired transfer rate is 12,000 KB/s (that is the full 100Mb)
Unplug the wire, connect the wireless, signal strant is GREAT and all of a sudden transfer rates are capped around 250 KB/s
250 is WAY slower than 12,000
