LAN to slow

March 26, 2007 at 15:01:35
Specs: WinXP Prof, 1.4GHz, 512MB
I have LAN:
- switch
- Computer A: WinXP, Intel 3.4 GHz, 512 MB, 150 GB, 1 Gbit LAN
- Computer B: Win98, Celeron 333 MHz, 64 MB, 10/100 Mbit LAN
(other 6 Computers are disconnected)

I am copying file something.rar (500 MB) fromA -> B.

When I am working on Computer B and tell him to Copy file from A to B, the speed is 7.3 MB/s

But, if I am working on Computer A and tell him to copy the same file in the same direction (also from A to B), the speed is only 1.6 Mb/s

Why? Where is problem?

First, check your 98 PC and ensure the NIC hasn't been set to 10 Mbps. If it has, change it to 100 Mbps and try your transfer's again and see if the speeds don't improve.

If the above doesn't make a difference and you have a long enough crossover cable, I suggest you try a direct PC to PC connection and then do the transfers just to see if it makes a difference.

Hi all,

extremely slowness may cause by the following:
-Network congestions
-Poor rooting
-bad cabling
-Electric interference
Overloaded server at remote end of the connection
-Virus in LAN

-if u have cisco router restart it, it maight be ur LAN freeze.
-if u have LINUXBOX as Router also u can restart.
-also u can restart IDU or any INDOOR UNIT to reflesh ur network.
-NB: use 2mins or 5mins to switch on.
