|lan vs internet optimization|
Transfering from the internet to one machine is not the same as xfer across the lan. Server to your hard drive. Hard drive to hard drive. If you have a slow hard drive/system as destination - hd to hd can be slow. Its the weakest link that is the issue.
There are things you can do to optimize your lan
1. defrag all of your drives. Amazing how file xfers increase when they don't have to write here/there on the disk.
2. set your nics from auto to 100mb full duplex. This is assumin you have a 100mb connection between pcs.
3. off load any apps/services you don't need from starting up. There are guides on the internet for this.
Give a person a fish you feed them for a day.
Ask a person to internet search and they learn a skill for a lifetime.
