I've been transferring files from my laptop to my PS3 with 15-20 MBps through cable. Now I have built a new HTPC and I connected it instead of the PS3 (so same cable, same port), and the max speed I get is 11.x MBps.
Network properties shows 1Gbps on both laptop and HTPC. Router shows 1000 Mbps on both connections. Task manager on HTPC shows going to max 99 Mbps.
I should mention that I tried transferring both through windows network devices and ftp (filezilla).
Speed and duplex set to Auto Negotiate. Jumbo frames disabled on HTPC. I tried setting it to 2KB and no difference.
HTPC config - Qualcomm Atheros AR8171/8175 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet
Router: Technicolor TG799vn v2
Yesterday I restarted the computers a few times and nothing changed. Today I just tried transferring something and it goes with 38 MBps. What could be the issue?
