Btw, no offence but I wish the F*** people would give up quoting BITS when talking about communication speeds. The general public thinks in terms of BYTES not bits.

I checked around the Intel site and apparently there are some very recent update for your Gigabyte network adaptor which came out on Dec. 12. They are supposed to help with Windows 7 network speeds from what I could read about them.

You can download them in the link below. The Windows 7 drivers are right at the top of the page.

Ok...so you are getting around 7 megabits per second to the internet. That's most likely limited by your internet connection...but that comes out to roughly 875,000 bytes per second.

When you are transferring files between the two machines, are you using machine names or TCP/IP addresses which are internal on the network? I just am trying to make sure that you aren't in any going out of your network to your ISP and then coming back.

Becuase seriously, how many people are going to go deep down and figure 8 bytes equal 1 bit.

then when you start to explain why a hard drive loose gigs when you format... that's alot of math for the average user *lol*

theres alot of peole out there that you still have to convince them that 2 + 2 does equal 4

I'm running out time (not to mention the will to live...) on this, and need to get some sleep.
No, although my router's connection to the Internet is fixed, I assume that the local connections are dynamic and no, I have no idea how to change them to become fixed too.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarghh! Why is all this so hard?

It's not hard at all, although it could be slightly most difficult if you don't follow directions. Those drivers should help. The simple way is usually the best way.

This is what updated drivers are for by the way, to fix these sorts of problems.

No, turning it off didnt make any difference.
A silly question on my part: Did you reboot after making the change?
Yes I did.

OK. Just checking.

Okay I've just installed the new driver. Sorry but it makes no difference. (Arguably a small fraction SLOWER if anything...!)
