I’m having trouble with my speed too. I get about 3-4MBps wireless and 10-20MBps wired. I read quite a few posts on this, tried all the solutions, but nothing’s working. Here are some numbers:
I’m on a GigaBit network. Router (Linksys E4200) is gigabit, my laptop is gigabit, and Windows confirms the connection is gigabit. However, after using the LAN Speedtester recommended on one of those posts, it gave me the following results: about 120-140 Mbps upload and 280-290Mbps download. (I’m talking Mb, Megabits here).
I know that GigaBit connections will only grant you about 120MBps transfers, but I’m getting 120Mbps.
I disabled jumbo transfer, my cables are all Cat 5E (in all honesty, I did pull them out of a box in the attic).
I’m lost here! I have no idea what else to do to improve my speed. I went through all the options in the WD My Book Live control panel, found nothing of use there.
Is it possible it’s still the cables? Is it worth buying new Cat 5E/Cat 6 cables just to try?
Can’t wait to hear from you guys.
