When I copy files to my live hub (wired network), I almost always get terrible transfer rates, on average below 500 kbp/s. When lucky I might get a rate higher than 1mb/s (often not) but this takes a few minutes to ‘reach’. I have reached rates of 7mb/s (although this won’t last long) so I know my hardware can handle it. I also tried various cables, as I read somewhere a bad cable can influence the transfer rate immensly, but this didn’t change anything.
What is going wrong here? And better, what can I do to improve it, as transfering tens of gigs at 500 kbp/s is no fun.
