Windows 7: Slow Network Transfer & Disconnect

Slow Network Transfer & Disconnect

I'm trying to transfer between my Desktop computer (XP) and laptop (Windows 7). When I do it wifi it only transfers at speeds between 1MBs to 3MBs. When I physically connect to my router I get better speeds at 10-11Mbs. However in both cases on large files it loses connection.

It says that connection lost/failed and gives me option of retry/skip. When I hit retry it still doesn't work. When I disconnect and retry that method it starts up again from scratch however rarely does it fully transfer a file. These files are anywhere from 2GIGs to 4GIGS.

I don't have anti-security on either computer. I'm using new Netgear router.

Any ideas? Is there another method to transfer locally without using windows explorer? Maybe 3rd party program.

Hi,

You'll find that, depending on your wireless recievers, 1-3MB/s is actually quite good...

Depending on how old your laptop is and the wireless connection in your desktop, most are 54G which can handle average speeds of around 1.2MB/s (or 12Mb/s). Newer hardware, wireless 300N can reach speeds in excess of 100MB/s (almost 1Gb/s).

If you have 300N wireless in your laptop/desktop you will still need a 300N router in order for it to utilize the packet sizes.

Wired network connection will always be the fastest as it's a direct connection with no obsticles (walls, chairs, book cases etc.).
