I want to test the speed of my network I am using 2 10/100 NIcs and a linksys router. I am tranfering files through TCP/IP. I have tryed 2 things so far. I have setup a ftp server on each computer. and when I ftp I tranfer at 1000KB/s (1meg/s), but when I drag and drop I get at times 5000KB/s-7000KB/s (5-7 Meg/s). What I am trying to do is make it the fastest I can. With my NIC's having 100 base on them. Why am I not tranfering faster. My 2 PC's are 1.2, 786 mg ram, 120gig, 7200 RPM Drive and the other is 2.8 1 gig of ram and 120 7200 rpm drive. Is it the protical, a setting? Is there a good program I can download to test the speed of the network.
Thanks for the Help
