No i have the problem at home. I click on the "network and sharing" and view status of local connection, and it says 100mbps, but I look at my 32GB file transfer in process, and it says 10.6Mbps and a long wait til files are all sent.
Let's just clear something up here: Please be uber-precise when throwing numbers around because there is a BIG difference between a MegaBIT
and a MegaBYTE
(an 8x difference to be precise).
If you have a standard fast-ethernet card that can transfer data at 100 MegaBITs
per second (theoretical max of course and not including overhead due to ethernet frames, etc. etc.), then there is absolutely nothing wrong with experiencing a file transfer at a rate of ~10 - 11 MegaBYTEs
per second. In a theoretically perfect transfer you should be getting a throughput of 12.5 million BYTES
per second (100 * 10^6 / 8 ), and using the base-2 definition of a megabyte as 2^20 bytes, that translates into a theoretical maximum of ~11.9 MegaBYTES
per second. There's always going to be overhead, so 10.6 MegaBYTES
per second is perfectly fine and your card is operating at full speed.
Units: Learn them, live them, use them consistently.
