I have desktop with Win 10 connected to 1 Gbps router via Ethernet, the link is full 1 Gbps (in
Also I have old laptop (Lenovo Y500) with the same networking configuration (NICs surely differ, but both are 1 Gbps Ethernet).
I am living in Warsaw, Poland. I am observing that download from my two servers (Amsterdam and Chicago) on desktop are giving more than 20 MB/s (FTPS), up to 30 MB/s.
The link is 600 Mbit download and 30 Mbit upload nominal (checked on
speedtest.net). Both NICs are set for default settings.
The same application (Total Commander) with the same download on laptop is giving maximally 2 MB/s for Amsterdam and 512 kB/s for Chicago. Switching to Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz) does not help.
Why there is so much difference in the transfer? Ubuntu image download is also slow. But networking speed tests give max...
Can I make sth with laptop to achieve higher speed?
