So i setup a simple ftp server to help share my files around the household to the 4 or 5 other computers located here. Everything is up and running fine except im getting a maximum of 1.2MB/s. Everything is setup with Ethernet and last time i checked the connection speed says its connected at 100MB/s. So my question is where is my other 99MB/s going? Its not being used for internet because im still on dial-up (high speed doesn't come to where we live -.-) so that couldn't be eating up more than 56kb/s. All the computers connecting are either Windows XP or Windows Vista... The host is running on Windows XP. IS there anything i can do on my end to help increase the transfer speed?
Even when im transferring files directly over the network ive noticed that the speed is at a maximum of 1MB/s i've only once ever seen it at 1.5MB/s. At my school ive downloaded from the internet at over 7MB/s so there must be something wrong with how i have things setup.
Thanks a lot for any responses
