File transfer speed

    I searched all day and I couldn't find an answer, finally decided to register and try here.

    I installed Tomato after using DD-WRT for about a year and so far I love it. Noticed huge increases in speed, especially with QoS enabled. Anyway..

    The issue I'm having is since I upgraded, I get horrible transfer speeds between my PCs on the network. I'm trying to transfer a file from a PC connected wirelessly to my PC connected to the router and I'm getting about 6Kb a sec, it's horrible. I transfer large files daily.

    I've gone through all the settings in the router but I'm having no luck. Any suggestions?

    Is QOS enabled? Have you checked the log files for error mesgs?

    Yes, I do have QoS enabled. Would that change the speed of data transfers on the internal network?

    Also I've looked at the logs as well and I don't see anything that, from what I can tell anyway, that would be causing such a slowdown.

    Intel 2100/2200?

    Guess it would help if I stopped giving bits and pieces of info.

    It's a WRT54GL v1.1 router (I assume thats what you mean with your Intel question?)

    He was asking if your wireless adapter in the wireless computer is an Intel Pro/wireless 2100/2200BG. Not sure exactly what his line of reasoning was but I think I recall reading that those cards don't play nice when afterburner is enabled on Tomato, maybe that's why.

    The threads below will probably help.

    The problem with the 2200BG is usually disconnects, or dropping wireless signals -- don't think this might be your problem. Try looking at the wireless guide link or try a forum search on 'slow transfer speeds'.

    When you transfer files, are you also p2p'ing at the same time?

    Ah, ok. I have a Linksys WUSB54GC on Vista. I didn't have this issue with DD-WRT.

    I also don't have afterburner on, should I turn it on. The only setting I changed with respect to the wireless settings was the power (which is 70).

    Ok, what protocol are you using for LAN file sharing? NetBIOS over TCP/IP? NetBEUI? IPX/SPX?

    The reason I ask is because if I use IPX protocol for LAN file sharing, the transfer speed is significantly slower than what I expect (but not as low as 6KB/s). Whereas if I am using NetBIOS over TCP/IP, the speeds are closer to theoretical limits.

    Well, I simply copy/paste from the mapped server drive to the computer, so whatever protocol Windows uses to copy/paste over the network.

    I've also setup HFS (http file server) and tried downloading it via that, but that didn't change the speed of anything.

    Did you do a thorough NVram clear from the Tomato menu after you flashed from DD-WRT ?
  12. Quick2822

    Quick2822 LI Guru Member

    I didn't do that. I did, however, hold the button down in the fact for 30+ seconds. I thought that did a clear of the nvram as well.

    If this is wrong, let me know. I'll clear it from the menu and start from scratch.

    I would say to try that.
    And test with Speedbooster disabled and G-only.
    See what happens.

    Good luck!
