I have 3 devices that are Gigabit Ethernet:
- Windows XP PRO PC
- D-Link DSM-G600 NAS
- Intel SS4200E - NAS
My goal is to quickly transfer the 457GB of data on the D-Link DSM-G600 NAS to the Intel SS4200E – NAS. The problem is my current switch and router are 10/100 Mbps and I am seeing file copy speeds between 5 MB/s and 8 MB/s. This may be handicapped by the fact that I am using windows to initiate the transfer.
I would like to speed this up by upgrading something. But, if I can go cheap and do an adhoc set up just for the initial transfer between the D-Link DSM-G600 NAS to the Intel SS4200E – NAS that would be great.
Would getting just a new switch like a D-Link DGS-2208 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Desktop Green Ethernet Switch 8 x RJ45 8K MAC Address Table 144KB per Device Packet Buffer Memory Buffer Memory help? If so, how would I set it up, just to complete this task?
Other suggestions and ideas are welcome.
