Windows 7: Increase Local Network Speed?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

Converting that to megabytes, comes out to approx 27 megabytes per second...MAXIMUM. Considering that ethernet at best gets around 80% efficiency, you can really only count on 27MB/s x .80 = 21.6 megabytes per second. And the speeds of devices slow down when they get further away from the unless you are right next to the router with no interference you aren't going to hit 100% of these speeds.

So, when you say that you see speeds of 19.5 megabytes per second on your computer...that's about right. Those other figures are showing you cached speeds from within Windows and are simply inaccurate.
Very well explained.

You should be having no problems streaming to the Xbox, although certain formats may not work and it's a bit buggy still.

Some of the solutions posted in the thread link below might help you fix it.
Windows 7 and XBox 360

This might also help.

Msoft also says that certain ports may need to be opened up.

Excellent thanks

I'll just have to try work out why WMC on the PC crashes everytime I setup an extender for the 360 now

Thanks for all the help, it's very much appreciated.

Just stick with it, I'm sure you will get it figured out. I just didn't want you to think that you should be getting much faster network access and just leave it at that. Since you know this really isn't the problem, you can now focus on finding the real issue.
