would this be my server or router or something i did wrong
 
ok my network is 100 megabits a second and both computer involved in this test claim that speed


i mounted my file server to /mnt/poop (dont ask!!)

sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=tom,password=******* //192.168.1.102/15g2 /mnt/poop

then made a test file manually (aprox 100 megabytes)

then used this to transfer it

sudo dd if='/home/tom/Desktop/100MB' of=/mnt/poop/100MB

i got this after about 5 minutes

204800+0 records in
204800+0 records out
104857600 bytes (105 MB) copied, 273.817 seconds, 383 kB/s


now is it just me or are those speeds about idk 5 megabits a second or simply 95% slower then my router claims????

the oddest part is that i download from the internet at up to 500 kilobytes a second so its not my router nor the lines.....


if anyone can point me in a good direction on why this is id be greatful

For starters use -t cifs rather than -t smbfs. If you don't have it, compile it.

The options are slightly different if memory serves, -o user=<you>, pass=<youpass>.

tom@ubuntu:~$ sudo dd if='/home/tom/Desktop/100MB' of=/mnt/poop/100MB204800+0 records in
204800+0 records out
104857600 bytes (105 MB) copied, 55.909 seconds, 1.9 MB/s


when mounted using cifs.......


thats a more respectable speed thanks for your advise
