I am trying to transfer files from a PC at home running Windows Server 2008 R2 to my computer here at college, running Windows 7 Ultimate.
To test this, I tried connecting to my home PC via SMB with Windows Explorer, and am copying a file from there to my school computer's desktop. Everything works, but I am only getting speeds around 256KB/s. Theoretically, it could be faster, seeing as the home computer has tested internet speeds of 45Mbps down and 28Mbps up, and my school has speeds of 49Mbps down and 279Mbps up.
I know that my upload speed at home is not being throttled, as I can upload to a file hosting site such as ge.tt with much faster speeds, and my download speed at school isn't the issue, as I can download files from various sites at speeds of 4Mbps.
What else can I do to find out what is causing the slow transfer speeds?
