High Transfer Speeds

Have you ever tried transfering over 30Gb of data from one computer to another over your home network?

Last night I tried transfering around 600 home videos and pictures, a total size of 30Gb, from my laptop to the home pc over my wireless network and it took the whole night to fail halfway through.

Since I am a genius, I did manage to solve the problem. I connected my laptop to my home pc through an ethernet cable and restarted the moving process. Guess how long it took? Around 40 minutes. Impressive isn’t it!

The transfer speed over the wireless network was around 400 Kb/s where as the speed over the ethernet cable went over 8 Mb/s.

So there you go. Always choose to transfer large files over either USB or ethernet cables. Sooner or later wireless speeds will dramatically increase. Keep an eye and ear out for Wi-MAX.
