I am moving a virtual machine image of about 8Gb from my laptop to my network hard disk and it's taking a long time, windows reports a transfer rate of 840KB/second.
I'm wondering if the slow transfer is to be expected or if there is something wrong with my network configuration?
- My wireless router is a Netgear N600 with dual band N300 (300Mbs) Wifi.
- The switch is just a 4 port Linksys ethernet switch with a wired connection to the router.
- The hdd is an Iomega Home Media Network 2TB Hard Drive
