Old Dec 18th, 2005, 02:52 AM        File transfer slowdown question (linksys)
Still getting all the little kinks worked out of this new computer that I'm on...

Anyway, I'm connected to the web with a Linksys Wireless-G USB Network Adapter. Surfing the web and downloading stuff has generally been no problem. It's a little slow at times, but nothing too major so far. The problem I am having is that whenever I try uploading files somewhere (for example: to my site via ws-ftp) it is slow as hell. I'm talking over a minute for a file that's only 100k or less. Sometimes it'll hang so long that I'll just cancel the transfer completely. I made sure that my ftp program was in the exceptions list on my windows firewall just in case that was causing the problem, but it didn't seem to do anything as uploading files is still absurdly slow.

Any suggestions on how to resolve this funtastic lil' problem?

Yep, the other two definitely upload way faster.

clean out your startup temporaly, see it if make s difference.

used msconfig, choose selective startup, uncheck process system.ini, process win.ini, and load startup items.
Then go to the services tab and clik hide all microsoft services, then click disable all.

If this works, then you have an app running in the background causing the slowdown.

Nope, that didn't help. I couldn't even test my file transfers because what you had me do killed my internet connection completely. :o

It could be that you're getting a really shitty signal. :/

Just tested out file transfers on the old computer and they're just as slow all of a sudden too. And that one isn't even hooked up via wireless adapter, it's just plugged in directly. This has been going on for well over a week now. Any ideas?

Something has buggered the settings on your router, or your upstream bandwidth has been capped. Those are my guesses.

I guess you figured out msconfig, can be set back to defualts by choosing normal startup?

If it is occuring on more than one system now, I would power down the dsl/cable modem, for about 20 seconds and then power if back up, if no luck you can try to reset your router to defaults and re configure it.

if that doesnt work, try a system plugged directly into the modem, maybe its just your isp.

Have you also tried going to your router settings, should be status tab (I have an older router), and pressing DCHP release and then DHCP renew.

Also try rebooting the modem (remove power, wait about 15 seconds plug back in, wait until the ready light is solid), reboting router (in same way after rebooting cable modem) and if that fails try the release renew. It can take a little while to kick in and send packets, sometimes they get a bit clogged up.

Also check your security settings on the router.

If all fails, phone your ISP and get them to check your modem. I hope that in america the customer support over there is of some use unlike this country (which I'm ashamed to say I've had to scream down the phone at a few times "I'm more qualified than you I'm doing an IT graduate (ok, ok give or take a few months but they don't need to know that)."

Oo also try right clicking the network connection and clicking repair that sometimes helps.

Could it be a NAT problem? :/

take the router out of the equation. test your upload speed from a machine connected directly to your gateway device (cable modem in your case, correct?).

if the problem persists without the router, call your ISP, and ask them why it's so bad.

you can use http://www.dslreports.com/stest to measure your bandwidth and compare that to your service's advertised speed.
