    just some tips:
    To test your LAN or WLAN speed use the Windows Build in Monitor, they accurate. Open TaskManager>Performance there you have Ethernet und WLAN. There is a the bottom the "Resource Monitor" which gives further more detailed information.
    Try to copy a large file, for example a Windows ISO file between your PCs, LAN / WLAN and watch the speeds. Like that you can see if your Cables/Router/Switches are working well.
    About Speeds, a 100Mpbs LAN will give a max. transfer speed of 2,7MB/s (that will be shown in Windows Explorer )
    In "Resource Monitor" you will see 21.3 Mbps for the same speed of 100Mbps.
    A WLAN with 300/150 will give give the max, of 8MB/s / 4MB/s, in "Resource Monitor" will be 64Mbps / 32Mbps respectively.
    If your ISP gives only 24Mbps, your intenet Speed (shown in Windows) will be max. 1,92MB/s or 15,4Mbps
    Hi there

    over the wifi-ethernet Bridge system I described above I was getting quite reasonable speed copying a 6GB m2ts (blu ray) file to another computer on the same network -- no probs -- so your calculations seem a bit off.

    Hi jimbo,
    The "calculations" are correct. They are related to the max. theoretic speeds.
    Your speed of 11,4MB/s in Explorer are 91,2 Mbps in Ressources and 427.5 Mpbs LAN/WLAN adapter speed.
    I have never seen such High speed, very good, congratulations.

    @ jimbo, I am just curious, would you please open your Adapter Settings and tell me which speed is shown there? (Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network Connections>"Your Adater")

    Going back to basics.....I have two computers connected to the same router via an Internet switch box....the PC gets 70-80mbps I am cable with 80mb max.....the laptop only gets up to 1mb but on wireless either built in or an external device get up to 3mbs

    i know it's an old laptop, but don't know why the wired slower......

    thanks

    first, please put Speeds in same Unit, either MB/s or Mbps , so we dont get "confused".
    second, take another Cable and see.
    Is the Cable a "Straight" or "Crossover"? Crossover will only work good connecting 2 PCs directly. There are some switches that support also "Crossover" cables, but I would not do it.
    To identify if is Crossover or not, look at both ends side-by-side of the RJ-45 and colors must mach . If there are some (3) of the small wires in wrong order , you have a Crossover.
    Third, the best you have to do, is looking at Network Adapters and see at which speed they connect to Network.
    From that you can take conclusions.

    Hi there
    I've now switched to 5GHZ band for the Ethernet--wifi Bridge

    Even better

    copying also from Window(ntfs) HDD to NAS (File system ext4) HDD --My Capture device is Windows so I have to capture programs on Windows first --then I send it to NAS box for streaming / viewing later. NAS connected via SAMBA (running standard Linux CENTOS rather than a QNAP type of system for the servers).

    Network currently 2 windows machines and 2 NAS servers - ticked with red markers -. Same LAN- all 4 boxes connect via LAN -->wifi Bridge using edimax router described in previous post in this thread.

    One windows machine without LAN card connected via USB--LAN adapter -- Other adapters are 2 X HP Ethernet 1GB 332i adapter on the NAS boxes and an INTEL pro 100 mbps / 1Gb on the other laptop.

    Your Router is 802.1AC working at max. 433Mbps. The max. it will run is 12MB/s.
    My HDD is doing better than than, over 80 MB/s.

    Hi there.

    I'm only showing what Windows is reporting -- seems fast enough for me. If Windows is telling lies then I can't help that !!!!!

    HDD's of course on direct connections can go a lot faster --local SSD to decent optimised RAID will get over 230 MB/s - but that's local connections --different issue to going over a LAN - especially wireless.

    A full 1Gb/s LAN should give sensible results too --but my point was to say that wifi is still perfectly OK unless you are transferring mega amounts of files regularly.

    Cheers

    You are moving files to the same computer, HDD Transfer speed. Not that huge, actually.
    Router will give 12MB/s and no more.
