Howdy gang,

I'm trying to transfer files over my LAN between two 2 computers (both connected through Ethernet) but the speed is very slow.

The top speed is : 3MBps

Desktop: Windows 7, wired
Laptop: Windows 7, wired
Modem/Router: Aztech DSL605EW

I've tried a couple of things already:

1. Disable RDC
2. Disable FlowControl
3. Disable autotuninglevel
4. Set Speed and Duplex to Auto Negotiation

Thanks for the time!

On a 10/100 network, under ideal conditions you should get an average transfer speed of about 12.5Mbps assuming all other things are equal and assuming it can make a 100Mbps connection in the first place, if not it'll throttle down. You will never get anywhere near 100Mbps transfer speed.
However more is dependent on the rest of the setup, and the hardware involved. The fact they run Windows 7 is nice, but doesn't mean anything if the machines are very old.
