Slow network file transfers


I'm running Mandriva 2006 and I have a 100mbit network set up like this:

WRT54G running HyperWRT tofu12

Clients connected are My mandriva box, a Linksys NSLU2(love it), and an IBM laptop running xp.

Now I'm having problems getting file transfers that are initiated by my mandriva box above 2.0mb/s

Now what is strange is that like I said, if the transfer is initiated by the Mandriva box, it's slow, but if I initiate the transfer with my laptop, it's much faster, probably more around the max of the 100mbit network. The same file, and the file is located on the mandriva box.

Any ideas?

I don't know about the HyperWRT tofu12 software. I recently purchased a Linksys WRT54G. The transmission rate was horrible. I downloaded the latest version of their firmware and installed it. The WAP/router is working great now. The transmission rate is excellent.

Unfortunately you are correct about static DHCP. I looked all over the management interface pages on the router. I downloaded the user guide and data sheet from Linksys. Although there are numerous advanced features using the Linksys firmware static/assigned DHCP is not included.

Well, how many computers do you have? If you have a small LAN then you could just use the hosts file to assign an address for each computer.

I don't see how the router could be the problem though. It's ONLY something on my Mandriva box. If I transfer files from my laptop to my NSLU2, I get full speed. But If I try to copy files from my Mandriva Box to anything else, it caps out at 2.0mb/s

BUT if I go into my Mandriva box through samba and copy the same files to the NSLU2 or my laptop, I get full speed. it has to be Mandriva.
