When trying to transfer files between my home server and my main rig the transfer rate is 16 Kb/s tops why is this. Both my rig and the server are respectable computers. both with quad cores and 4 gbs ram. The server is running the latest windows home server. they are connected with a cat 5 through a Net Gear router.
What am I doing wrong.

I highly doubt Cpu will make much of a differance, as my home server rig uses win xp a 900mhz Celeron M, yep a celeron M and 2 laptop drives. and i still see 90mb/sec transfers across the network, it is likely a problem with your router or congestion somewhere.

Okay we can officially rule out that it is not the computer. Can you give me the model number of your Netgear Router?

Okay the best thing to do first would be to troubleshoot your router. Try doing a factory reset. Go to your Windows OS and delete the current shared network and setup a new one.Also turn your firewall off on your home server for just a few minutes and check the transfer speeds.

Something tells me the nics are running at 10mbps lol

Might wanna check, if you transfer a lot of data over network LAN, it's not a bad idea to invest in gigabit network.

The computers are probably gigabit capable just not the router.

So Tried turning the firewall off for a moment and it still was extremely slow. Anyone one else have any ideas?
