    Post [practice] Wireless/wired transfer speed

    Here is speed numbers which I got with:
    • wired desktop PC with Intel Ethernet card
    • wireless/wired notebook with WL-100g
    • router/access point WL-500g

    I simply copied big file (about 700 megabytes) in various directions, transfer speed measured with Far (File and Archive manager).
    • From wired notebook through router to wired desktop - between 4 700 and 6 400 kilobytes per second (it varies a lot).
    • From wireless notebook through router to wired desktop - between 2 000 and 2 200 kilobytes per second.
    • From one HDD partition to another inside desktop - about 15 000 kylobytes per second, wired, of course .

    Theoretical maximum
    • for 100 Mb wires - 12,5 megabytes per second
    • for 54 Mb wireless - 6,75 megabytes per second

    I think above numbers is not the case to be sad about poor performance . In worst case it took me only five minute to get file copied.

    wow cool. just the kind of tests i been looking for.

    I have the max speed when copiing from a wireless notebook via router to a wired computer max 12.5 Mbit/sec
    I have the notebook standing right next to the router, so the distance is not a problem. Also I checked with netstumbler, there is no noise on the channel I use (i get constant signal-to noise ratio -25dbm)

    So why cant I reach the maximum of 54Mbit/sec, or at least half of it?
