windows 7 7420
any updates t o this issues

i think windows 7 have soem issues after moths of testing and probing

we did a test with a crossover cable on 2 gig network cards and only got 33 meg at the faster time we did every tweak in the book and then some it was kind of painful took 48 hours to back up our videos and music to a new server of the wire now are are all sata drives so no more slow dieing drives btw the never server sis still lagging big time avve 12-18 mbs on a gig lan we think it the realtex cards a the intel cards right now they say they are a gig connection but will never see a 1/4 of the speed on network copying media ceter HD content to the exteneders is a no go for now

You must have the right switch for Fast transfers

Requirement for full speed ethernet transfers (75% of 1000 every transfer +) is a Non-blocking, wire-speed transmission switch!

•ZyXEL's GS1100-16 16 Port Desktop GbE Switch is a 16-port 10/100/1000 switch (I'm getting 700-800Mbit or 80Mbyte transfers)
•ZyXEL's GS1100-24 The GS1100-24 is a 24-port 10/100/1000 switch
•ZyXEL's GS-108B 10/100/1000Mbps Port Desktop GbE Switch is a 8-port 10/100/1000 switch
•Cisco SR2024 24-port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch
•SMC Networks - SMC8508T - EZ Switch 10/100/1000 - 8-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Unmanaged Switch
•Linksys SR2016 The 16-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit

Please try the examples given but if you don't have the right switch then it won't matter what you do at the OS
