I have 2 PCs on a Netgear Gigabit switch. One dual boots Vista 32 bit and XP Pro and has a Gigabit Wired PCI card. The other PC has gigabit wired integrated interface. When I am on the PC with the PCI card and copy from the other PC I am getting 44 to 49 MB/sec on large files. If I copy in the other direction the throughput is about what I was getting with the 100 Mb interface on XP, and as high as 30 MB/sec from Vista, but dropping down to the 20s or lower at times.

It seems like there should be some way to fix it but I can't figure it out!! Help!! :thumbsup:
At the current time I have Flow Control Enabled on the PCI card and disabled on
the integrated interface. If I try it the other way around I lose the fast copy.

Trouble is I want the copy to be fast to the PC with the integrated interface since
it's a quad core and I want to lob stuff over to it for faster processing. If it's
got to be asymmetrical I'd rather have it in the other direction.

Moderator you can close. Since I updated the PCI card driver I'm getting transfers in line with what the HD on each machine can serve up. Looks like I'm in good shape here. :thumbsup:
