Networking advice.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
He'res the deal. PC no. 1 is brand new, almost nil stuff on it. PC no. 2 has all the gear on it.
i want to be able to transfer stuff, as i need it, to PC no. 1 using the network.
the max transfer rate is 10MB/s going through the router on cat5's, which, i dont feel is fast enough

would a direct cable between the two work? faster speeds? would it even work? (orange cable in pic) see the picture for more info on the setup.
both computers are high end, windows 7 and have multiple networking ports.

how do i get this setup sorted? thanks in advance

heres the setup, and my pro 5 minute paint skillz:

If I remember rightly, if you do that you'll cause a network loop which will trash your network.

I.E I set up a wireless bridge between two wireless boxes whilst they were connected to the network at the office and I disconnected everyone from the network.... lol

ahahahahaha
this is why we ask OCN first

hmmmm, so anyway to make the data go faster through the router? i mean, could be 1000 different things, and i've tried various tweaks around.
is there a slowdown somewhere? the router? cables? ports?

Does your router have 100Mb or gigabit LAN ports?

You could use a null modem cable...through rs-232 serial ports....but your network would probably be faster. Or you could use a crossover ethernet cable which should avoid the network loop problem.

heres the exact model: http://bc.whirlpool.net.au/bc/hardwa...w&model_id=279

yes, 10/100.
is 10MB/s normal for 100?

Yes, 10MB is normal for 10/100 connection. It can transfer at 100 megabits/s which translates roughly to 10MB/s (megabytes)

You will have to get the propper hardware to run faster, which would be a gigabit switch/router and lan cards.

Edit: It actually equals 12.5 MB/s

You could make/buy a crossover cable and use that between the computer. But you will have to manually configure those network cards (ip.subnet) to form their own network.

(also...There is a chance that one of you nics supports crossover auto detect and you won't need the crossover cable.)

(also... also... It is been forever since I have had to use a crossover cable so you may need to unplug one computer from the switch to get this to work)

As stated, the limiting factors in this scenario are the 10/100 nics/link speed.

Also, you shouldn't need a connection between PC's as well as to the router. The router's LAN ports are actually a switch, and are able to route your data at line speed.

However, if both PC's had gigabit NIC's you may be able to gain 1 gbps sync speed connected directly, although you would have to utilize at least cat5e. Also you would likely have to establish a static IP address (in a separate subnet if using multiple NICs).

Like others have stated, for the purposes of just copying your files to the new computer, just hook them up directly without going through your router and copy. They could be new enough to auto negotiate and not need a crossover, but I wouldn't bet on it. The other option is just copy everything to a USB 2.0 drive and then physically move the data that way. Which, sadly, is faster than a 100 mbit network.
