File Transfer speeds in Fios Home network...

What should the normal speed (mb per second) on transferring files between two hard wire computers on a home network...

 

I'm averaging around 1mb per second and that doesn't seem right...

 

 I have a normal Fios triple play setup/ all desktops connecting w/cat5 and laptops are wireless..and whatever router verizon sends with the package.

 

 

Any info on what transfer speeds would be great...

 

Thanks

I know there have been speed issues with Windows Vista and TCP receive window scaling. Remote differential compresion in Windows Vista should also not be installed or enable. If you have Vista be sure you have SP1 and have optimized the connections. There have also been many issues with XP to Vista. I would look at the Operating systems, and doubt very stronly that the switch in the router supplied with FIOS would have anything to do with it. Look for information on files transfers with Vista, if you are running it. I am, and love Vista but had similar issues before tweeking it.

Also the speeds of your hard drive matter too. If you are running a 5400rpm ide drive it will be slow.

True. I have also installed a gigabit switch and pluged it into my router. It would be nice if there was a Verizon supported router that had it built in.
