Copying files across a 802.11g 54Mbps network
02.04.06 at 14:15:47
 
For my multi PC backup solution I am copying large 700MB disk images across the network using a 802.11g 54Mbps network link. Network usage went up to 11% (100% is 100Mbps,  the max bandwidth of my wired LAN). This means I am only using 11Mbps (=1.3 MB per second)
 
PC and wireless access point (integrated in my Speedtouch ADSL modem) are approximately 3 meters apart. Signal strength is excellent.
 
If you have any thoughts on why I can only get up to 11Mbps,  please let me know.

I have redone the experiment, copying the files to another computer on the network. Data speed was higher, 18% of the 100Mbps network bandwidth. My assumption is that wireless 802.11g is the slowest part in the connection. Perhaps that assumption is wrong. My throughput today was 1.8Mbps.  
 
A continued experiment was to copy the same files across the wired 100Mbps LAN. This transferred at 60% so at 60Mbps. This rules out the limiting factor is the receiving PC. It can receive at least up to 60Mbps. The limit is therefore the wireless link it seems.

This topic seems quite popular. May I invite everyone to post their experiences? Any tips on how to improve the speed across the wireless link would be greatly appreciated. Also it would be nice to hear of people that have achieved higher speeds.
