I think the poster saying he gets 10Mb, is talking about a wired connection.

There is no way you can get 10mb on Wireless.

You will either have to hard wire your connection, or stick with the really slow wireless, there is no fix, just the way it is.

Yes I think is the fast 1.5 but i was hoping that have any solution,maybe you have solution to get faster speed with crosscable to laptop and wd tv live hub or create a reapiter from my another router or what must  I buy to connect a laptop and wd tv live hub

Yes it is.

Some would say you don’t need a crossover cable nowadays, and Cat5 cable will do the same thing, as the card inside changes the setting for you. I tried Cat5 and I made a cross over, they both worked at the same speed, it might have been my bad cable skills though.

The best way I have found is hard wired, I can stream 1080p movies from my PC to the Hub with no problems. But if I try and copy the movie from the PC to the Hub over the same cable it starts at about 10mb, but drops down to 5/6/7mb especially if its a large file. The hub is designed to stream video, its not made to move whole files over a network.

Anything else is painful and slow, especially if you are moving anything over 4Gb…shame.

Yep, understud I think that i must stay to my solution(is the faster way to transfer files,put hd in laptop and is done fast((but is going on my nerve disconect here,put here ,waitttttt,put here wait here heheh)),becaouse i never stream movie ,only whatc when is on hd .

Many thanks for all answer and i will back with another problems…:smileyvery-happy: hehehe

Hi! same question, I will try it.

If you are going to connect two computers via ethernet use a router/switch/or hub, don’t mess with cross over cables.  Dont bother with gigabit as wired speeds still max out at 10-12 MBps.

I dont now way one day, I  open this folder but another week i cant .

Why this happening any sugest?
