    shouldnt i have more then 1mbps up and down?

    hello everyone

    heres my small problem

    2 computers
    both gigabit *10/100/1000* ethernet
    cables handle 10/100
    router handles 10/100
    shouldnt i have more then 1mpbs *not even that* over my network??

    1 computer is running slackware 10.1
    other is windows xp pro

    my thoughs is samba might be slowing it down alittle bit... if i start up a NFS do you think i will get more speed?


    P.S. i have been searching google and still am... not the greatest luck

    thanks guys

    I have no real idea as to your answer but I would ask: what are you using to measure your actual speed?

    Also, what is the "B" in bps.............bits or bytes...........remember that there are 8 bits in a byte

    just a thought

    I would check for duplex mismatches.

    Like make sure auto negotiation is enabled.

    Maybe even try manually setting it to 100Mbps Full Duplex

    One thing you could do to test it is start up apache and put a file in there then download that from your windows machine. or vice versa start up IIS on your Xp machine then wget a file over your network from your linux machine.
