I am trying to identify and correct any issues with my setup that would slow down file transfers between computers on my wi-fi network.
I have an Actiontec c1000A router with (2) wireless, and (1) wired network clients.
I routinely copy files from one of the wireless clients to the hard drive on the wired client. However, I have noticed that this file transfer typically starts around 4-5 MBps, but quickly drops to 1 MBps for the duration.
The wireless client, in question, is a Dell Latitude E6400 with Intel WiFi 5300 AGN adapter.
Under Network and Sharing Center, I show the connect speed is 144 Mbps. Should this value be higher?
Can I expect any faster file transfer with this equipment and setup?
