Slow transfer speed while sharing files on a winxp netwok using 54g wireless clients.
Posted on 2005-05-16
First of all, I have an ASUS WL-500g Deluxe router, a TopCom SkyR@cer 154 PRO pci card on the desktop and a 3Com Officeconnect 11g PC CARD on the laptop. The ruter is set to AP and the internet connection is a 2mbit adsl.
I have Zonealarm With Anti-virus on both computers, set to allow access only from the ip of the other computer in the network. I have shared folders on the desktop with the media i want to stream to the laptop and out to the TV.
The problem is when transferring files from the desktop to the laptop. I never get speeds above 300K/s. This is way too low to view a movie in the dvdplayer on the desktop over the wan.
I have set the router to open access, not using any form of accesscontrol/encryption what so ever.
I have tried everything i have come over of advice in the forums on the internet, but without luck.
I hope you guys can help me.
