Good morning experts,

I have a simple one for you , but the solution has eluded me on my network at home. My problem is when I am copying or moving large files ( avg of 2.5 gib) files across my home network , I am only getting about 9 to 10 mb/s. how can I speed that up to at least 30 meg per second or more. I have checked the adaptors on all of my computers and they are capable of 10/100/1000 throughputs. I have each card configured as 100 or 1000 half duplex. my netgear hub ( its not a switch) is capable of 10/100/1000 throughputs. My computers are all Dell Optiplex computers with the exception to two machines. The Optiplex computers have integrated nics , but the other two pc clones have pci express nics in them. Is it a simple matter of going out and buying a better hub/switch and replacing/disabling my nics?
