  • Very poor transfer rate/speed problem with Linksys WRT300N

    Hello to all.
    I am using WRT300N as a home router at my main PC.
    An HTPC is connected to the router with an Edimax wireless LAN USB adapter that support N Draft connection.
    Since I connected the HTPC to the main PC (the one that the router connected to) I have very poor transfer rate/speed.
    E.g. transferring 2GB picture takes at least 20sec!!! the transfer is by browsing from the HTPC to the main PC and dragging the file to the HTPC desktop.
    Both main PC and HTPC are Windows Vista Ultimate with SP1.
    More than that, I cannot configure the connection to be an N connection (as mentioned the wireless USB adaptor is supported with N connection) every time that I configure the "network mode" to be "wireless N only" the connection to the HTPC lost.
    Pleas advice.
    Regards
    Gilad

    This is what happens when you use drafts and not the finished one. You'll need to get a Linksys wireless draft N adapter.

      OK,
      How would I know that it will solve the problem? And what do you mean "not the finished one"??
      And even if the network is not an N network still the transfer speed shouldn’t be so slow, so I believe that there is something else…
      Any idea?

        draft = not the finished one

        Are the drivers up to date on both machines?
        Is the AV scanning the file both ends (can you disable to see if it changes)?
        Do both machines have all the windows updates?

        My initial thoughts were "is 20 seconds a long time over wireless anyway for a 2GB file?"
        cheers

          Although Cisco owned Linksys it's still not a fully Cisco device.
          Moved to DSL, Cable, and other Broadband Issues

          Ps, check out your NIC. I had some issues with the NIC of my mac first.
          After an update from apple everything works fine

          My mac Pro works fantastic with my draytek router on 11n
