I have two Windows 7 laptops (one Dell and other Toshiba). I have a shared folder on the toshiba-pc, and both are connected to a wireless router. When I copy a large folder from toshiba-pc to dell-pc, (from dell-pc accessed the network share on the toshiba-pc->right click the fodler->copy->paste to local C:\ drive), the transfer speed shown by the Windows ->Copying dialog is between 180 to 200 kb/s!
I can download files much faster (2 mb/s) from the internet to these laptops (so that proves wireless router does not have any issue).
So I believe some settings on these laptops should be incorrect (may be n/w card setting), but I couldn't find where exactly is that settings. Can someone help?
Note: I know I could use other ways to achieve faster files transfer, like for eg, installing a webserver or an ftp server, and then using those protocol for the transfer. But I'm trying to see how to make this fast with default windows network file copy
