Slow network transfer speeds help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So flame away, but I have a Apple Time Capsule, which is a gigabit router as well as a network storage devices that houses a 1TB 7200rpm SATA hard drive.

My PC (windows 7 x64 sp1) is connected to the device via a Cat 6 cable and currently is the only device on the network (as I have turned off my laptops). I am trying to transfer some items from my PC hard drive (Intel 510 SSD) to the Time Capsule via the 1 gigabit connection and am only achieving about 11 megabytes per second. At this rate, my 133GB transfer will take hours and hours.

Any reasons for this? I know gigabit and gigabyte are not the same, but I really was expecting something more than 11MB/s

Thanks

taking a guess, maybe bottlenecked by your mech HDD?

In my experience transferring 100GB of tiny files takes far longer than 100GB of large files, probably because of the HDD. If you're sending loads of little files try using winrar or something to store them in an archive first and transfer that archive over, that should go much quicker. You don't have to use any compression on the archive either, though making it smaller is an advantage I guess.

Ensure both connections are setup for 1Gb.

11MB/s transfer rate is suspiciously close to the maximum transfer of a 100Mb/s connection (max is 12.5MB/s).

Sounds to me like 1 connecion is only operating at 100Mb/s.
FYI - Max theoretical transfer of a 1Gb/s connection is about 125MB/s, however your 7200RPM disk is probably limited between 50-70MBps, throw in the Time Capsule between and drop it again slightly. A quick gues based on this tells me you should be getting about 40ish MB/s.

If you go to your NIC properties on your Win7 machine, and click the configure icon on the "networking" tab, then click "advanced" tab. there should be an option for "Speed & Duplex", make sure this is set to "1000Mb full". this forces 1Gb/s operation on the computer side, on the Time Capsule, i'm not sure and i'm not really interested (avatar) but i'm sure someone will jump in!
