Slow Network Speeds

Q: Slow Network Speeds

I'm using a hub and have 2 different computers hooked up to it, mine being the server. I don't know what kind of network you would classify it as but I'm using it to ftp files to different computers, hope this makes since. But anyway, whenever I hook the cable directly computer to computer I get transfer speeds of about 9-10mb but whenever I run it through the hub I don't get anything over 1mb. Anyone have any idea why the hub would be slowing things down?

Thanks,

Preferred Solution: Slow Network Speeds

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Slow Network Speeds

Replace it with a 10/100 switch or if you are on broadband, a router with built-in 10/100 switch.

Hubs let through selective traffic from one user at a time, whereas switches let through all traffic simultaneously.

It also sounds as if you have some slow 10MB NICs. Replace these with 10/100 NICs

Currently have a WiFi network setup for internet. Both computers connect to the router via WiFi Dongles. Which is running no problems.

Each computer is then plugged into a network switch (cheap 4 port stand alone unit) via Ethernet cables (gigabit ports) and into the switch I have also have a WD My Cloud.

Having various issues, such as unidentified network, network being defaulted back to public, the ip addresses I have assigned being reset to obtain automatically and only getting transfer speeds of 3MB/s

Running windows 10. No home group/work group setup, have 1 drive on the other computer shared and mapped as a network drive.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Disabling “Large Send Offload (LSO)”

Large Send Offload is a technique of improving network performance while at the same time reducing CPU overhead. Apparently it does not work very well, so it was suggested to disable it. If you would like to know about LSO, check this MSDN article from 2001 (Task Offload (NDIS 5.1) (Windows Drivers)).

LSO is an option located in a Device Manager under your network adapter, so this solution requires Administrator Privileges.

Follow these steps:
1.Open Start Menu, right-click on Computer and select Properties
2.Under Control Panel Home located on the left side of the window click on Device Manager
3.You will get a list of all devices on your machine. Expand Network Adapters.
4.Find your Network Card and double-click on it.
5.Select Advanced tab. You will get a list filled with different options.
6.Select Large Send Offload V2 (IPv4) and set the value to Disabled
7.Do the same for Large Send Offload V2 (IPv6) if it is available
8.Click OK

After clicking OK, tried to send a file over the LAN network. Transfer speed started very slow, but it was gradually picking up speed. Decided to restart the computer and try to send that file again and this time it worked like a charm.

Now that sending of files worked as it should, also checked speed for receivi... Read more

Hi guys,
I have three computers on my home network:
(a) desktop in the office with ASUS USB-N53 adapter
(b) new desktop in the office with fairly old Broadcom PCI 802.11g adapter
(c) media box hooked up to TV hard wired to router

I recently mapped a drive on system A so that it could be shared with system B (they are side by side). Unfortunately, upon trying to transfer files the speeds are terrible! I am only getting between 500kb/s and 1mb/s.
Is this due to my relatively old wireless G adapter?

thanks :S

A:Slow Transfer Speeds over Network

It could be. You really need to use on both desktops wired connections. If you are going to use Wifi and transfer large files. You may want to invest into a Wireless-ac router and same for the adapters for the computers.

Wireless transfers only go as fast as the slowest connection.

Hey everyone. Computer is an X1 Carbon Gen4 with Win10 Pro. No recent modem/router changes. No software changes. No updates available through TVSU (at least that's what it says.. I use to have updates available every couple of days and it's said there were no packages available for my system for almost a month now)/Lenovo website. Windows updates current. All drivers should be current. For some reason, only on this laptop, I'm getting around 50Mbps down instead of my normal 230Mbps down. Just started within the past couple days. It's not location related, I've eliminated that possibility. I powercycled the modem and router. I did a factory reset on the router. I tried using Google's DNS (I had to do that on my MBP to get the correct speeds out of it on the 5Ghz network) and it didn't change. My upload speeds are normal at 20-23Mbps. Any idea? My iPhone and MacbookPro are getting correct speeds.

hi folks, was wondering if the networking gurus here could shed some light on a pesky network speed issue that's been bugging me for a while now.
I have some large files that I'm trying to transfer over an 802.11n network via various high end routers and max transfer speed I get over all of them is 45Mbps, even though the routers are very close by and the
Link speed on both laptops is 300Mbps.

First laptop is a Dell M6700 with Windows 7 Professional, with Intel Centrino Advanced N 6205 a/b/g/n wireless card , driver Date 6/16/2013, v 15.9.0.5 , provided by Microsoft.

Second laptop is an Asus Q325UA (UX370UAR) with Windows 10 Home with Intel Dual Band AC8260 wireless card. (Driver Date 3/19/18, v 20.50.0.4, provided by Microsoft).

Between them I have a Linksys EA6350 router with latest firmware, supporting  both 2.4 and 5ghz.  and have set the network to 5ghz,  Since the Windows 7 Intel Centrino cannot support AC protocol, I have set the 5ghz network to Auto.  The

Hey everyone. I have an issue that's driving me nuts. All of a sudden my internet download speed seems to have dropped. But, when viewing my connection or doing online speed tests, the speeds are actually great. I cannot stream video most of the time and images take longer than ever before to load. Web pages sometimes load fast and other times they will hang for a little while before downloading. If I try to download a file, my download box pops up but takes at least a minute or two to begin showing progress. Its as if im behind a proxy or something. The real kicker is that when im in safe mode with networking my speeds are great. My actually system is working as smooth as ever. Any suggestions here?

Hi,

I got my Fiber line installed about 2 months ago. The offer I pay for says 1Gbits/s down and 200Mbits up. Naturally, I've never even gotten close to those speeds. At first, when the guy did his thing, I didn't have an Ethernet cable on hand (despite being a network and IT student...I know, the irony), so I used the router's Wifi. I was averaging 70 Mbits down. At first, I was thinking, 'this seems a bit low'...for fibre of course). I went into lectures the next day and people said, you may need to wait for your line to be properly activated...this seemed plausible, so I waited. The next week I stuck an RJ45 on some CATVE and immediately went to average 500Mbits/s (688Mbits/s record). Now, this is great, but it's still half of what I'm paying for.

However, for the past 2 days, I've been having problems. My Desktop (after coming out of sleep) always has the yellow triangle symbol over the wireless icon (faulty ethernet cable so was back to WiFi). I disconnect and reconnect to find the same problem. I restart the wireless on the router, to find the problem is persisting. Only after 3-5 tries does it work. My phone too has been having trouble connecting to WiFi (Authentification problem).

The original CAT5 cable has since 'developed' a problem and has been changed. The Pc hasn't been having the connection problem out of sleep, but Chrome is very slow to do anything. Youtube loads every other time, social media too. I... Read more

Hi
My PC's network card is configured as 100 Mbps
My NAS Drive is configured as 100 Mbps

My Home Hub 3 shows both connected at 100 Mbps, yet I'm getting a maximum of 1.3M transferring a file to the NAS.

Is there any way I can increase this ?
I get the same speed from my 20Mbps download from my DSL.

A:Slow Network Transfer Speeds on Local LAN

Your hub is probably whats causing the problem. Hubs are only able to run in 1/2 duplex mode so your speed is only 50 mbps.

100 Mbps (Mega bits per second) connection maximum theoretical speed is 12.5 MBps (Mega Bytes per sec)

A hub that runs in 1/2 duplex mode runs at 50 Mbps = 6.25 MBps

This is theoretical maximum speeds.

To increase you speeds i would suggest replacing your hub with a switch. If you want to increase it more add gigabit hardware to all your machines. That will give you a maximum of 125 MBps. On my Gigabit network I normally see network transfer speeds around 70-100 MBps.

I hope this helps.

Hi

I am transferring some files over my network using the Python SimpleHTTPServer on a Xubuntu box.

Code:

Code:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
The server is a mediocre, 4-5 year old machine AKA David. I don't have the exact specs to hand but it was bargain bucket in 2009

The client is a big powerful monster of a machine. Big games rig. AKA Goliath.

The router has a theoretical transfer speed of 300Mb/s. It's a TP-Link TL-WR841N.

My actual non-concurrent download speed is ~ 4Mb/s.

This isn't really my area and I was wondering if anyone can explain why this is? All connections are via Ethernet cable. David is connected via Ethernet. Goliath is connected via Ethernet to a Powerline Adapter which in turn is Ethernet connected. Over wireless, I am getting ~1.5Mb/s.

I'm not expecting the full theoretical maximum but surely better than 4Mb/s? Is there anyway to improve this? Why am I getting such a slow connection? I'm interested in the academic side of things here as well as the technical solution (if any)

My theory is that my rubbish-y old network card is throttling. Possible?

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Slow-ish transfer speeds over network

Several things here. First, the NIC(s) used can affect the speed, even the driver version can have an affect. Second, how each NIC is connected and configured (ie: 10half, 10Full, 100half, 100Full, etc.).

Verify the configuration end to end. Also, the router itself, and in this configuration, the powerline adapter can/are likely further reducing the speed.

Try moving everything to the same room and test. ie: David > short ethernet > router > short ethernet > Goliath

That will give you the best possible results with your current hardware (assuming there aren't any configuration issues).

So when transferring files from one pc to another using copy and paste, why does it only say 2-3 maybe 5-6 or so..

I’m using windows vista, but it’s the same in XP when I was using it. I share a folder on network, browse to this shared folder using another PC on the network (same workgroup) and i copy and paste say a 600mb file. The transfer speed reports (in vista. xp don’t have this feature) that its around 3mb/s or so, whatever it says, it’s not "what it should be" regardless if its 100mbit(10MB/S) or gbit(100MB/s) network.

Now on the advanced config of the network adapter there are various settings that control the network adapter. Does one of these determine the overall speed or the transfer? Maybe a firewall or router is slowing the transfer; therefore a port should be opened? is so what port? Or are speeds slow due to windows..but where can I find information about such a bug, i mean iv looked and looked.

maybe I’m just not googleing the right thing

so anyway if someone knows anything that could help me speed up the transfer of data between two pc's on a windows network, It would be a great help.

Hello everyone,
I have 3 or 4 devices connected via a wireless connection, 2 of which are in the same room. Roughly a week ago, my desktop (Vista OS) started to suffer from severely reduced download speeds (5-30kb/s), while my laptop (also Vista OS) which is on the same wireless network continues to run at normal speeds (500kb/s-1mb/s).

I have tried a system restore, scanning for viruses, updating/disabling antivirus and firewalls, connecting directly to LAN, changed wireless interface speed from g to b to mixed, changed wireless channels from 1-6-11, nothing seems to work.

I have a Thomson TG782T router with a D-Link wireless card (which is rather old). I will be happy to post system specs if it helps diagnose this problem.

Please feel free to move this if it should be in the hardware section, I'm thinking it may be a hardware issue.

Thanks in advance.

Every now and again the connection speed to just one PC drops to a point where there is almost no activity. I get various "connection timed out" and "DNS lookup failed" errors, then after about 10 minutes of frustration everything works again.

So, I know that at one point in the past my Home Network File Transfer Speeds use to be better than what I'm getting at the moment.

I'm by no means Network Savvy, so please bare with me. I know enough just to get into trouble.

Question 1
From what I've been told your Home Network Speeds can be put to a screeching halt if you have a device that is particularly slower than most of your other devices (ie. a 802.11b device where most of the devices on your network are /g or /n. or a 10/100 device where most others are 10/100/1000) Is this true?

I have 1 D-Link DIR 865L AC Router centrally located in my home for the best reach of signals.
I have 1 WD My Book Live 2TB NAS connected directly to my Router via Ethernet.
I have 1 Samsung Series 6 Smart TV
I have 1 D-Link Baby Monitor connected via WiFi (802.11b I "THINK")
I have 1 iPad Mini, 1 iPhone 6, and 1 Samsung Galaxy S5 that are all also connected.
All my Ethernet Cable is Cat 5e, hard to find 6 where I live.
My Router Channel is manually set to 11 (best possible) due to conflicting Home Networks around my area.
Router Mode is set to Mixed Mode (a, b, g, n) All of my devices except our 2 phones fall into this category.

With the laptop i get average transfer speeds of this 9gb file of 50-70 mb/s, every time, consistently, No problem at all.
With the PC, one time it will start at 55-60 and slow right down. Other times it'll start at 30 and again slow down.

Hi there, i was wondering if you could help me this problem i've been having for the past 3 days now. I recently downgraded from Vista to XP, and ever since then i've had download speeds of 5kb/s or less. Before now, i couldn't get onto anywebsites because it would time out, things like www.yahoo.com would take about 5 minutes to open properly. I did notice that when i was asked which partition to install XP on there was 2 sub partitions on the C drive for some reason. Anyway long story short, i managed to fix it by using the format option from booting the pc with the vista installation disk, then put xp in etc.
So, browsing speeds are normal for me, but i can't get on my online games because it just times out due to the slow download speeds, and anything large in size takes extremely long to download even with internet download manager, I've been waiting 10+ minutes for windows live messenger to finish downloading and installing and it still hasn't done so.

Ever since I have bought the laptop Wifi internet speeds seem to be comparitively very slow on battery than when plugged in.

The issue with this laptop is that when running on battery and connected using wifi even opening a webpage such as facebook or youtube takes an awfully lot of time lets say like 5 to 10 seconds and sometimes much more, whereas if I do the same with the power cord plugged in, the web pages appear as soon as I click their links(i.e. Vey Fast/Instantaneously).  To add further clarity to the situation I tested the download speed of a particular file while running on battery and with the cord plugged in.

Hey, I'm having really slow speeds surfing the internet, watching videos on sites like youtube, and downloading files. So i went to Speedtest.net and found that my download speeds are only 1.3 mbps!! my upload is fine, around 5 mbps. I dunno what the issue could be! I am wirelessly connected to the router, but the signal strength is fine. Attatched is a screenshot from xirrus.

Hello all, I've been pulling my hair out for two days about my wireless connectivity issues.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro, SP1 (32 bit). I've got a custom built machine with a Realtek 8185 Extensible 802.11 b/g wireless device. I've got a wireless networking modem through Centurylink, an Actiontec C1000A.

Previously at my old place, I had cable internet through a modem and used a router to connect my PC to the wi-fi. Never really had too many problems.

Now, I've got this new setup with a DSL networking modem and I've got problems galore.

The most common issue is that the PC connects, but it's "Limited Access" and it usually shows "unidentified network" with the public network icon. It also says No internet access. And I can't get online. I can't even see the modem. I've called tech support numerous times and we've tried tons of things. On a few occasions, we've managed to get the thing online. Twice it was the built-in WPS on the modem that got it connected. Once it was disabling and re-enabling the wireless adapter on my PC.

But every time I was able to get online, my speeds are terrible (1 mbps or less, and this is a 40 meg connection). And if something causes my PC to lose wi-fi, like a restart or something, I can't get connected again. Very inconsistent, and always at super low speeds.

I officially have no idea what to do and have exhausted numerous troubleshooting avenues. Here's a few things also that would help rule out certain caus... Read more

A:Connection Problems over Wi-fi "Unidentified Network", slow speeds

Are you sure that the modem is not one of those modem/routers combo units?

I believe the Actiontec is a combo unit... if you plugged your old router into this unit you need to plug from the LAN port on the Actiontec into the LAN port on your router "not WAN port", you will also need to turn off DHCP on your router and assign it an IP, usually in the range of 192.168.x.x depending on the default gateway and IP range of the Actiontec.

I'm just assuming that you plugged in your old router in or you wouldn't be having so many problems?

It would be helpful if I could see a screen shot of the ipconfig/all.

Hi folks,

This is my first network setup and i am hoping someone can help me with some issues. The setup is as follows:

Router: Netgear DG834GT ADSL

Computer 1: (Known as Maude)

Desktop
Celeron 434MHz CPU
512 Mb RAM
XP Home SP2
Wired to Router
Has USB Hard Drive that i want to use as a central data file storage space for the network.
Computer 2: (Known as Myrtle)

Desktop
AMD Duron 1.29GHz CPU
512Mb RAM
XP Home SP2
ASUS WLAN via USB
Computer 3: (Known as Martha)

Laptop
Celeron 1.86 GHz CPU
512 Mb RAM
Vista Home Basic
802.11g Mini Card Wireless Adapter

Computer 1 is in the living room and is used for email/browsing/word processing/IM and other relatively low demand applications and is the most likely to be switched on, hence the Networked Drive being attached to it.

Computer 2 is primarily the hub of my Recording Studio (grand name for a cobbled together hobby type affair) but is also used for email etc. It is located in an outbuilding but is no more than 7meters from the router and gets signal and link strengths that rarely dip below 50% and more likely average 65%

Computer 3 is my wifes college laptop and is only really part of the network so she can use the printer attached to computer 1 and back up her files on the networked drive.

All 3 computers communicate.

The biggest problem is the data transfer speeds between Computer 2 and Computer 1.

I'm not sure if I'm trying to do the impossible but I'll explain the situation.

I have this roommate that is excessively consuming the majority of the networks bandwidth. I've blocked all service ports except for 443, 80, and a few other ones used for every day task. The problem is that he is still consuming a ton of bandwidth, I'm guessing by streaming or downloading through HTTP.

I have *two* WGR614v10 router, and a Realtek PCIe LAN card controller at my disposal. I attempted to set QoS settings on what we will call Base Router. That did not seem to do the trick because router QoS only blocks ports and slows upload speed. Since that did not work I hid the SSID/MAC filtered connections to the Base Router and then connected my computer to the Base Router and rebroadcasted the signal using a Secondary Router using a shared connection, which I gave him access to. The point of this was an attempt to control bandwidth through the Realtek LAN card; I am not having any luck with this though. I've set the adapter to 10Mbps at half duplex already.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can look into for limiting bandwidth? I want him to have Internet but not abuse it like he's doing because that is not what we agreed upon.

A:How to limit network traffic speeds with a network card?

If you want to solve the issue using your existing equipment, you can try dd-wrt on one WGR614v10. See this thread (DD-WRT Forum :: View topic - WGR614v10 Support - Jump to post 9) which claims that there is a dd-wrt flash for WNR1000v3 which works on WGR614v10. Then look a thread like this (DD-WRT Forum :: View topic - Steps for Permanently limit Bandwidth of a PC using DD-WRT ?) to setup the limits. You can start a new thread in those forums if you want someone to walk you thru the steps.

Or you can just buy a router/access point that has a bandwidth limiting feature for each SSID that it broadcasts.

Hello all,

First off, I have been searching these forums for several days and have seen a number of people reporting slow wireless connections in Windows 7. Which was comforting, knowing I was not alone - but unfortunately I've yet to find the answer in any of the older posts, so I am hoping that making one of my own will help resolve this. Sorry to add to the noise, but I'm kind of out of ideas. Now for the problem:

Initially my wireless speed in Windows 7 was comparable to what I got under XP - mainly 54mbps but occasionally dropping lower, but nothing out of the ordinary. However, I've recently noticed that I am never going about 18mpbs now on my wireless connection, and the actual speed seems to be bottlenecked even slower than that. Example, here is a speed test I just ran.

Here is the results of my ipconfig /all

A:Slow Wireless Speeds - Laptop is fine, Desktop is SLOW

I almost don't believe it, because I could have sworn I had tried this in the past. I changed the broadcast channel from 10 to 1 after doing another WiFi channel search and seeing a new network broadcasting on 8. I was still getting good signal strength, but I figured it couldn't hurt. About 30 seconds later my wireless speed jumped back up to 54mbps and this is the speed test now.



Glad its fixed, but I almost don't trust that this will stay fixed. Going to leave this open for a day or two to see if anyone else has any suggestions that I might want to try.

Also vista reports the network speed to be at 1Gbps (1 Gigabit) but through testing i have found it to be around 55 MBps (55 Megabytes, should be around 128Megabytes, i believe),

I have also tested the speed by connecting two vista computers together both with the required ports, vista says the link speed is 1Gbps but yet again i don't get even half this, anyone know what i am missing here??
and why i frequently lose internet even when the wireless works??

A:network speeds

Nope, only one connection will be able to access the Internet. If you have weak signal strength, you need to address that, not try to cobble something like this together. I'd start by changing the router's channel, and also you can add hi-gain antennas or signal boosters to one end or both.

Hawking Tech has a number of products that will help you increase your wireless range. The root page is Hawking Hi-Gain™ WiFi Range Extending Products.

Some of the more interesting products are this Hawking [HSB2] Hi-Gain WiFi Signal Booster, which can be used on either end of a wireless connection to boost the signal power.

Another way to increase your signal strength is by the use of hi-gain antennas. You can choose from omni-directional or directional models, here are a some examples.

Hawking [HAI7SIP] Hi-Gain 7dBi Omni-Directional Antenna

Hawking [HAI15SC] Hi-Gain 15dBi Corner Antenna

[HAO14SD] Outdoor Hi-Gain 14dBi Directional Antenna Kit
This is just a sample of available products, many people have hi-gain antennas with similar specifications, but I haven't seen any other suppliers of signal boosters.

Hello,

I recently switched my ISP from cable internet to DSL... when I was on cable, everything seemed to be consistently speedy (but not as fast as my new DSL connection is supposed to be) As soon as I switched over to the DSL, the issues began.

Now, my wireless connection is consistently faster than 3Mb/s, and I'm quite happy with that, however the wired connection bounces from 300kb/s to 1.5Mb/s. I have a DLink WBR2310 wireless router that has served me well until now.

Any ideas why the wired connection would be slower than the wireless...? I should also mention that when I connect my desktop right to the DSL modem, I always get speeds of 5Mb/s or more.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
