large file transfer over wi-fi -> "network connection was aborted by the local system"
Posted on 2004-08-30
I'm trying to copy some 1+ GB files from my notebook to my desktop. The notebook connects wirelessly with its Netgear WG511T 108mbps PC Card (108mbps enabled, signal strength 82%). The desktop connects via Ethernet cable to the Netgear 108mbps WGT624 v2 router. I can browse the network resources and copy small files just fine, but transfers of large files fail midway through with the error message "network connection was aborted by the local system". This may or may not be related, but I also have skips in audio playback on my notebook (2.66 Ghz P4, 960 MB RAM) only when I'm connected to my wireless network; the skips recently decreased to mere blips when I installed new Netgear router firmware. Thanks for your help with the file transfer issue.
