Specs: Windows XP, p4/4gb
Hi there dude I am trying to backup my laptop by sending all my information to my desctop. I have only started playing aruond with networks and I set some speed to 100/mbs but the transfer speed is still on default(10/mbs). How do I increase the speed coz I am a programmer and have alot of Data that need to be transfered, it just takes forever. I dont have a network hub or adapter I am using a cable connecting the two pc's directly to eachother... It works perfectly its jus damn slow.

Please Help...

Ok, first off, don't mess with the speed settings. Leave them on "auto" and they should negotiate for the fastest speed possible.

What is the speed of the two NIC's involved?

You will always connect at whatever the lowest speed is. So, if you one PC has a 1 Gig (1000 Mbps) interface, but the other has a 100 Mbps interface, then you'll only connect at 100.

I think increasing the speed of a fan will not help in cooling the CPU.
Because increasing the speed increases the power consumption of the fan and
increases the load to the power supply. This in turn will add up more heat disipation.

the power consumption that cpu fan would need/take will have no effect on power consumption or on the level of heat the power supply will create.
