TRANSFER RATES - You got 90 MB/ sec ( 700 mbits/sec) transferring files from Win 7 to XP????

Apps-The networking tab monitors total traffic.
Xfer- Yep, from a win 7 laptop (6 years old) to a tape server (6 Year old desltop). Both with gigabit cards.
Homegroup uses IPV6 XP and legacy systems work better in IPV4, so it does apply. If the homegroup didnt yield a higher throughput I would check the drivers
with a latency checker like DPC Latency Checker
