Windows network speed
« on: April 16, 2014, 12:46:50 PM »
Hi Joom, i was reading recently that windows XP-7-Vista is by default made to severely limits the file transfer speed over a home network setup. It would seem so to me at least, i use a 4 PC setup for animation/3D stuff, and use the network drives constantly [mainly for common/shared, texture referencing, xrefs and video file storage] and it does seem to be rather slow, considering the network speeds and bandwidth avail nowadays. it really would be nice to have some fast tranfer rates, i assume its like a lot of windows features, optimized, but editable?

i also read that it is "fixable" but is a real PITA to get the workarounds in place.

You wouldnt know of any solutions ?, ......any thoughts about the issue?

Just need to know a little more about how your network is set up, 9.  Are your 'network drives' just the drives in the computers, or do you have a NAS box set up, or are they external?

Also, what router do you have?  Even though some routers say they have gigabit ports, they don't always give gigabit speed.

Are you running CAT5. CAT5e, or CAT6 cabling?  And is any of the hardware or cabling really close to something that would be putting out a lot of RF or power?  Twisted pair cabling is supposed to eliminate outside interference, but it can still be affected.

And lastly, if the drives are in computers (or external), you have to look at the bus speed and architecture of the drives themselves, as well as the network adapters if they're in computers.  If they're in NAS box, the drives would be the only thing to look at.

Things can be tweaked, even through something as simple as a caching system, but a lot depends on what you're working with.  You could be experiencing anything from slow hardware, to slow drives, to data collisions, to router settings, or a combination of things.

Let me know what you've got...
