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

If your network consists of only two pc's you will never take advantage "full" advantage of 100MBps Line speed. Don't get me wrong. It is better than 10MBps, but you probably don't see a difference because just your file transfers are not even exceeding 10mbps's line speed capability. You notice a big diffence in 10MBps vs. 100MBps when you have a larger lan with more network traffice on it.
