Gig Wired Underperforming?

Just got this router a few days ago, and overall happy so far. However, just had to transfer many gigs worth of files from one computer to another, and they are only moving at ~1.6 MB per second. Both computers are wired in, and are gig NICs (confirmed that Local Area Connections are connected at 1gig). Has anyone seen this before, or have an idea why the transfer speed is so low?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Hey,

I just tested windows 7 to windows 7, using windows explorer, dragging a big .iso file to my desktop.

The speed was between 80 and 90 MB/sec.

Did you have anything else going on with the network?

What method were you using (FTP, windows workgroup share, etc.)?

Ahh! Figured out what was going on. Did a direct connection between the 2 computers, and speeds were a solid 70 megs. Then, tried swapping out some of the cables going to the router, and discovered a bad one. It's nice that's all it was.

Thanks Rhy, got me thinking 😛
