Things to try:
- move PC and router_storage closer (a few feet or yard would be fine). What happens?
- select another channel on the router
- to compare, move a large file, not many small ones
I have a wireless network in my house. My speeds seem to fluctuate greatly. This is NOT a question about interenet speed. I live in the country and I know my ISP is sub par out here. I am talking about data transfer across the network to my storage. I am using a Cisco E4200 storage router with a 2TB drive attached. From the same location in the house using the same computer, my speed ranges from 200Kb/s to 2Mb/s. I realize the speed is very slow for the router's specs, but that could be a distance,signal strength issue. Shouldn't my speed be pretty consistent from that location though? What could cause such a large speed disparity?
