My home network has three desktops, three laptops and some NAS drives. All desktops and NAS drives support Gigabit LAN and all laptops support Wireless-N. I was running a 100 BaseT switch though.
I recently purchased a Gigabit Ethernet Switch and an Wireless-N ADSL Modem-Router.
After upgrading, I noticed that the wireless file transfer speeds from laptop-to-NAS and vice versa became terribly slow. Possibly even slower than before the upgrade. The transfer speeds from desktop-to-NAS (wired) have improved though.
As an example, copying a 50GB file from laptop-to-NAS was estimated at 15 hours!
Is there something I can do to improve this? Also, should I consider buying a dedicated wireless access point for speed rather than using the Wireless modem-router?
UPDATE: Not sure if this helps but I noticed that all network cables installed in the network are CAT 5.
