Theres allot more to it then just the Network its self.
When copying a file from differnet computers on the same Local Network, Its not just about network speed. Not many hard drives have 400MBPS read/write speed. unless there all running decent SSD's.
If your hard Drive can only READ @ 80MBPS then you can't expect it to copy @ 80+ MBPS
I have a client that used to be on 100MBPS network, 50 users. We changed to a Gigabit network,
New switches, And a Firewall to control that LAN that was 1Gigabit too.
They never saw a massive increase in speed, however, Its allot more usable and stable with the amount of users they have and they can copy more files at once.
Hope this makes sence?
