Hardware :: NAS Wireless Transfer Speeds Over N Network?

How long does it take for you to copy about 12GB wirelessly over a N network to a NAS attached to your router? For me (Granted its over G because I don't have a N card), it takes close to 5 hours for 12GB :O. Is it supposed to take that long or what?

OS X Leopard :: Network Transfer Speeds Much Slower
I've noticed since upgrading to .7, that my network transfer speeds are much slower. When TM was running, I would get 10 - 12 MB/sec, now I'm get about 1 - 2. This still happens when transferring files manually, so it's not just a TM issue. Is there anything I can check or change to see if I can make the transfer rates faster? I should note that my internet speeds are fine and that this only happens in my internal network when transferring files.

Hardware :: 5GHz Wireless LAN Transfer Speeds
Got a question for all you people experienced with wireless LAN transfers over a 5GHz 802.11n network. I just got myself a new AirPort Extreme and a 2TB hard drive. I'm planning on using this 2TB hard drive as a media server, but only for one stationary MacBook that I have hooked up in the living room. Here's my problem: If I plug the hard drive directly into the AirPort Extreme and transfer something from my iMac in my bedroom, the speeds are fantastic. I definitely see the 5GHz speed bump, and can transfer a 4GB file in just a few minutes. However, since the MacBook isn't that powerful, streaming a movie over WiFi seems to skip the playback a bit.

I would love to have the server plugged into the MacBook to avoid this skipping. I've tried playing a movie off a USB drive and it plays perfectly fine. However, when I transfer a movie from my iMac to the hard drive hooked up to the MacBook, the transfer speed is much, much slower (what would normally take a few minutes takes about 15). Why is it doing this? Is this normal, or should the transfer speed be theoretically the same as if the drive were plugged into the AirPort? I double checked that this MacBook is in fact connected to the 5GHz network (although it's at 270mbps instead of 300, but I don't think that should make that big of a difference).

Hardware :: Time Capsule Transfer Speeds On Network?
So I've been using a 1TB Time Capsule for a while now with my old HP and recently purchased a MacPro [15 inch base model]. My room mate has a recent model Macbook as well as an older iMac. We have a 50MBPS internet connection through our local ISP. More or less I am looking for advice on how to make sure our network is:

1. Secure.
2. Faster transfer speeds between all of our computers to and from the Time Capsule. [Where to find / adjust / optimize these settings]
3. Utilize our internet connection to it's fullest potential.

I am mostly concerned with my machine [optimizing it that is.] then the rest of the computers in the house. Go slow and use medium sized words as I am still wading into the world of Mac.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Why Isn't IMac Transferring Files Over Network At Wireless-n Speeds
First of all here's my setup: 30d/4u Charter internet coming in through my Linksys modem, from there to port 1 of my 2006 Intel Xserve running NAT and DHCP, out from port 2 of the Xserve into my AirPort Extreme running in Bridge Mode, and then out to my other devices. 

My AirPort setup is as follows: Internet tab-DHCP, address set by Xserve; Wireless tab-Create a wireless network, WPA/WPA 2 Personal; Wireless Options...-5 GHz network name is not checked, Radio mode is set to 802.11a/n-802.11b/g/n (Automatic), both 2.4 and 5 GHz channels are set to Automatic; Network tab-Off (Bridge Mode). 

I am transferring 100+ GB of data across the network to my Xserve, but it is only Xferring at 5.5 MB/s, or around 44 Mbps, which isn't even at wireless-g speeds. My iMac is the Mid 2010 27" BTO w/ 2.93 i7 and 8 GB of RAM. It is also wireless-n compatible.The Xserve is wired and they have had gigabit NICs since the G5s. 

Things I've tried: In Wireless Options... I tried turning Radio Mode to 802.11a/n-802.11b/g and leaving 5 GHz network name unchecked, but the speeds were down in the 2 MB/s range. Again in Wireless Options... I checked the box for 5 GHz network name, and left Radio Mode in Auto, joined the 5 GHz network on my iMac, tried again, but again only 2 MB/s or less. In Wireless Options... again, I checked the 5 GHz network name box, and set Radio Mode to a/n-b/g, but ocne again, it ran at 2 MB/s or less. The AirPort Extreme is model A1354, which is obviously 802.11n compatible, and the iMac is also 802.11n compatible.

Mac Pro :: AFP Over IP To NAS VS FTP Speeds
After setting up a Synology DS411+ NAS on a gigabit network and doing a lot of testing, it seems fairly clear that Apple some work to so do tweak AFP over IP to take optimal advantage of gigabit networking speeds. One telling test was transferring a 22.8 GB Final Cut Pro project folder from an 8 GB Mac Pro (internal 7200 SATA drive) to the NAS (no other local or network activity occurring). The NAS is configured as a RAID 5 with 4 internal 2 TB Western Digital Drives. (speeds were verified with Net Monitor, and timed manually).

OS X :: Firewire 800 Real Transfer Speeds
I have 1TB Seagate Freeagent external (15mb buffer / 7200rpm) connected to MBP. Transfering .avi files using firewire 800 takes about 20 seconds per gb so around 50mb a second - Is that not incredibly slow considering firewire 800 is rated upto 800 mb/s?

IMac Intel :: Ethernet Transfer Speeds Slower On G4
Not to sure where to post this as in incorporates my iMac, MBP, G4, 10.3 and 10.4, but any way, here I go. I have an iMac, MBP and a G4, whose specs are at the end. They are all networked together through a 100Mbps switch, which I am considering upgrading to a gigabit switch. I ran a few tests to see what the increase would be like. First off, the basis to this. The G4 will hopefully be used as a media server, with numerous internal HD's holding the media. The test folder was transferred from desktop to desktop of each machine and contained over 3000 jpegs all between 8KB and 4.5MB each.

2948 of these files were in that folder, the rest were in two other sub folders in that folder, about 111 in each. This is a fairly standard sort of folder that I deal with on a daily basis, so I felt it would be best to use for a real world test. It totaled 3.39GB. Occasionally, generally for the slower transfers, at times during the transfer, it would slow down for about 100MB and then pick up again. why? The speeds are all below. I would love to know what causes the bottleneck for the G4. Would it be the processor? or ram? etc. All of the mac's have gigabit ethernet, and were one by one wired to the others and the test preform, to simulate the new switch. The current switch was then used.

Gigabit Test
iMac -> MBP 1:21
MBP -> iMac 0:52
MBP -> G4 2:20
G4 -> MBP 2:13
G4 -> Imac 3.33
iMac -> G4 2:30

100Mbps Switch
iMac -> MBP 5:54
MBP -> iMac 5:21
MBP -> G4 7:00
G4 -> MBP 6:49
G4 -> iMac 5:33
iMac -> G4 7:30

Thinks that'd I'd love to know.
1. What would cause the 1 minute slowdown between the iMac and the G4 in the Gigabit test?
2. would a Gigabit switch technically be able to match the speeds of the direct transfer test? or would there be a bottleneck at the switch?
3. what do you think of the speeds overall?

2.8 Ghz Core 2 Duo
4GB 800Mhz Ram
320GB 5400RPM HD 3.5in SATA

2.53Ghz Core 2 Duo (Unibody)
4GB 1066Mhz RAM
320 GBP 5400RPM HD 2.5in SATA

733Mhz PPC
768MB RAM (333Mhz I think)
40GB 7200RPM HD 3.5in IDE

1. What would help any of these Mac's increase any of the speeds?
2. What causes the bottlenecks?
3. Would the new switch be a bottleneck?
4. Would I get the Gigabit speeds from the switch?
5. Would more RAM help the G4?

24" iMac 2.8Ghz 4GB
15" Late 2008 MBP 2.53Ghz 4GB
G4 DA 733Mhz 768MB 10.4

MacBook Pro :: USB Transfer Speeds Slowed Down?
My girlfriend just got a new MacBook Pro and I've been helping her transfer software and such to her computer from my MacBook Pro. When I was transferring games to a USB 2.0 flash drive (it was only 25% full and it is 2GB), it was freezing up when transferring multiple things. So, I stopped everything, and transferred everything one at a time. Well, it took between 5-10 minutes to transfer a 50MB game! When I plugged the drive into her computer it took all but 30 seconds to transfer. Is this difference accounted for by the .14 GHz processor bump from my 2.26 to her 2.4? Or should I be concerned about this slow speed? My computer is little over a year old now and I've already had the logic board replaced.

Hardware :: Setup Network With N And G Speeds?
I searched but couldn't find anything about this. I'm fairly new setting up networks. I have an AEBS with wireless N (NOT the new one which would solve my problem). I also have a Belkin wireless G router. I would like to set up a network where my new macbook can take advantage of the wireless N speed and not be slowed by my wireless G devices.

Current setup:
iMac (early 2006) wired to AEBS (G speed max if wireless)
iphone 3G wireless (G)
PS3 wireless (G)
Macbook wireless (N capable)

Is there a way to setup my AEBS so only the macbook sees it so it gets full wireless N speeds then use the Belkin G router for the other devices?

Hardware :: Average Transfer Speeds To Airport Extreme USB HD
I recently acquired an Airport Extreme Base Station. Its the previous generation - i.e. the one that does not have the dual band technology. I am getting extremely poor upload speeds to this drive while trying to backup (using time machine) or transferring even small files. Generally the transfer speeds are less than 1 mb/sec. Is this normal? I was under the impression that under wireless N, these transfer speeds would be much faster. I am literally within 5 feet of the router.

OS X :: Drive Make Noise And Low USB Transfer Speeds
I have some questions to ask about my MacBook Pro (15" 2.66ghz mid09). It's running under 10.6.2 fully updated.

1) My optical drive sometimes keeps making this noise every 10sec even without a disc in it, is it normal?

2) My hard drive sometimes makes this noise even when there is no disk activity (I checked with Activity, again is this normal? I remember hearing the same noise on my old PC when there was some heavy disk activity; but on my Mac it does it for no reason.

3) Can you recommend me a fan control software for Windows 7? Having to boot on OS X, set the fans at 5000rpm and reboot every time I want to do some gaming is pretty tiring

4) I was making a little video with iMovie today, I only added a photo and a mp3 file but suddenly my computer started getting slow, that's when I noticed it was actually taking 2.20Gb of memory.

5) Can you recommend me something that would give me the same mouse acceleration curve as in Windows? I tried SteerMouse, USB Overdrive, MouseFix and ControllerMate but none of them gave me a satisfying result. It makes me feel that my new Kone mouse is totally useless.

6) I have low transfer speeds to/from USB drives, around 5Mbytes/sec while my friend with his 2006 HP laptop could achieve around 20Mbytes/sec with the same USB drive. No, it's not funny.

Mac Pro :: What File Transfer Speeds Possible Over Gigabit Ethernet
Our still photographic studio has a range of MACs all connected via a gigabit D-Link switch to a series of Buffalo NAS raids. Wiring is CAT5e, all devices have gigabit ethernet cards and the link lights on the switch suggest that all devices are connected at that speed.We currently get file transfer rates of between 5 and 12 MB/s depending on network traffic.We would like to upgrade our NAS to a NAS/SAN, preferably using the existing wiring (and avoid the expense of Fibrenet). 50 or 60MB/s would be great if possible.Any suitable architecture and Hardware. Cable lengths are a maximum of 30 metres.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Slow Fileshare Transfer Speeds Using SMB
I'm running Lion Server on a Mac Mini and using SMB to share files between the server and both Windows and Mac machines. I can't figure out why I can only get 2 Mb/s transfer speeds between the server and the other machines. I'm quite certain I'm not limited by my network and the disk write speeds clearly exceed 2 Mb/s. Possible to boost this speed or is this an actual limit of SMB or Lion Server?

OS X :: Ultra Slow DL Speeds On I5 Mac Wireless But PC Is Normal...
I just got my first Mac last week and I love it to death except for one thing. I can only get D/L speeds of about .7 - 1mbps wirelessly on my Linksys N router but my PC gets the full "advertised speed" (about 5.8) on wireless. This is very annoying and I have no idea what it could be. I don't really know what it does but I did some research and some people in other places recommended clearing the cache and I did. Nothing works, no reboots, no unpluggs, nothing.

Mac Pro :: Very Slow Transfer Speeds With External Hard Drives Through Firewire And USB?
My external drives transfer very slowly on my MacPro. I've been searching for answers and have turned up very little.

Just to make a note, I measured my disk speeds with both AJA System Test and copying files between drives and reading the Disk Activity in Activity Monitor.

I have 3 external drives, all MyBook Premium or Professional, 1x 500GB, 1x 1TB and 2x 1TB in RAID 0. I had them on Firewire 400 and the RAID 0 2TB one on Firewire 800. My transfers on FW were all around 24MB/sec on all drives (much less than what I should be getting with FW400). I then read somewhere that the FW bus on the MacPro uses the slowest speed connected for all FW connections. So I unplugged everything but the FW800 Raid 0 drive and my transfer rate jumped to 40-60MB/sec. This is much better, but still about half or so of what I expect it should be producing from an external RAID 0 setup.

To keep my FW800 backup drive faster, I've plugged the other two into USB2.0. The transfer speeds on both drives are now hideous, around 10-15MB/sec. This is so slow, but I'm not sure what to try to fix my speeds.

The HD's in the external drives are all 7200rpm, and all should be transferring at a higher rate. Do you have any suggestions or ideas? Ideally I'd like to get everything transferring at rates they should be transferring at, but I'll settle with my current FW800 speed of 40-60MB/sec if I can get my other two drives transferring at a non-snail pace.

Is this a common issue? I can't believe I'm the only one plugging multiple external hard drives into their Mac Pro. I hope someone has a fix or solution for this. I'm all ears!

System: Mac Pro (early 2008) Mac OS X (10.5.5) 3.2Ghz 8-core - 16GB Ram - 4x1TB SATA - GeForce 8800GT - Dell 30" 3008WFP A02 - Gateway 21" FPD2185W - 3xMyBook external drives

Hardware :: Multiple AirPort Expresses - Huge Impact On Wireless Speeds
my internet connection got extremely slow. I thought it was because our ADSL modem was acting up, so I restarted it several times. That didn't help at all. I didn't really need a fast connection until today, so I started digging to see if I could find where the problem was. Well, it turns out it's with the AirPort Express base station. Base stations, actually, as I have three. I couldn't get a good reception in the back of our house, so I bought a second that's used in the living room, which I now have connected to my stereo. AirTunes is very nice, as I found out. I also wanted to connect a printer wirelessly, so I bought a third AirPort Express to go in the back of the house (as that's where I put the printer).

Hardware :: Poor Wireless Speeds Using Airport Extreme Base Station?
I've recently upgraded into a faster Internet Provider, but for some, I'm still getting poor internet speeds using my Airport Extreme Base Station (Model # A1034) when using my Wifi.

When connected via Wifi, I'm getting at least 1-3/Mbps downstream while I can achieve 10-15/Mbps when wired.

What's causing this drastic downstream speed difference between Wifi and wired? Do you think it's time for a new wireless router?

MacBook Pro :: Slow Wireless Upload / Download Speeds Compared To Ethernet
I have a brand new MacBook Pro 13'', it has all the latest updates from the Apple software update tool. Connected to Ethernet, i'm currently getting 12.5mb/s. As soon as i go to AirPort, disable Ethernet, and run the same speedtest i get just over 7.9mb/s. Even with the laptop literally next to the DSL router. Could this be down to the dodgy update Apple have released, as i have been led to believe by other users with similar problems?

Hardware :: How Can I Able To Setup NAS That Will Be Accessable Outside Of Our Home Network
I use the Apple Airport Extreme Base Station Dual Band as my main router. I use a new Apple Airport Express to extend the range of my AEBS and allow connectivity via Ethernet only. Problem: We want to be able to setup a NAS that will be accessable outside of our home network via the internet. We are looking at using a free software such as Free NAS. We are not able to figure out how to forward a port on the Airport Extreme to allow an FTP. Is this being complicated by the additional airport express? do we also have to change settings inside that router to allow this. We have scoured the internet for specific instructions on how to do this, but cannot get it resolved.

MacBook :: Wired Network Settings (NAS And D-Link)
I have a macbook and am trying to set up a small wired/wireless network at home. I am trying to wire my macbook through a gigabit switch with the router and a Nas D-Link 323 also attached to the switch. There will also be a PC which will be wireless and does not need access to the D-Link. I can connect to the internet ok and have the pc working wirelessly too however I am at a loss as to how to get the mac talking to the Nas. The lights are all on on the switch but I cant figure out what I need to do to get the D-Link to talk to the mac. I am using cat 5 cables. If I log into the router the D-link shows up as an attached device with an IP address and a mac address. I have a feeling that I should be doing something in the network settings but I don't know what.

Hardware :: AirPort Express + Get NAS (Network Attached Storage)?
I'm looking for a "media server" of some sort. Buying a second computer to have constantly running to store movies/music is out of the question since I just want to have it for my MBP, 360, and roommates PS3. I want to get a NAS (Network Attached Storage), but the main router is in my roommates room. I don't trust my roommate to keep a $100+ hard drive safely in his room, and he won't want the responsibility of making sure nothing happens to it when people are over and what not. I already have an AirPort Express in my room. I know the AirPort Express can be used as a network extender. Would I be able to connect the NAS to the AirPort Express via Network Cable and have it work?

MobileMe / Restore :: Access NAS Outside Network With An Airport Extreme & BTMM?
I have a WD 2TB NAS on my network. I am in the market for a new wifi router and am very interested in the Airport Extreme. Is it possible to access my NAS from outside my network if I have mobile me and an Airport Extreme? I know you can access an external drive attached via USB to the airport extreme using BTMM & MobileMe, so it seems logical that you can access any drive on the network that is exposed with share folders. Anyone try this? I called Apple several times and most of the people I spoke with said it is possible but not supported by Apple.

Hardware :: Extended Wireless Network - Multiple Airport Express Wireless Setup
I'm working in a home/home-office environment right now which was setup by someone else and I've noticed some odd network behavior when moving about the property. Looking at the setup, the relevant portion is: Cable modem - Airport Extreme - 10 port wired switch - 3x Airport Express in different areas of the house. The configuration of each device has the Extreme and all three Express devices set to "create a wireless network" with the network name the same for all four of them. I am not a networking expert but I would have thought that the Extreme should be set to be the "master" in a WDS network and the Express should each be set to participate in that WDS network. If they're all hosting their own wireless network with the same name and the coverage overlaps, how does a PC know which one it's using? Or maybe this doesn't matter. I just know that when we move from one room to another we frequently have to re-select the wireless network to establish connectivity.

Hardware :: Time Capsule Join Wireless Network/Will All Traffic Go Mac Wireless Router
I have just got my 1Tb time capsule and there are a lot of confusing descriptions of how to connect it.

At the moment I have just selected "join existing wireless network" which is a ADSL 2.4ghz G Router that came with my internet package (Thompson TG585 v7).

Does this mean that all traffic goes via the ADSL Router and that I will not be using the 5ghz band when I back up so that all the data will follow a path like this and have slow data rates? :

MAC --2.4ghz--> ADSL Router --2.4ghz--> TC

or will I be communicating directly with the TC at 5ghz for backups and data transfer and 2.4ghz with the ADSL router for internet like this? :

MAC --5ghz--> TC
ADSL Router --2.4ghz--> MAC

If this is not a good setup, what setup would allow me to get the full speed to the time capsule and be connected to the internet.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Possible To Use Mac's Ethernet Port To Extend Wireless Network To A Non-wireless Device?
OK, I asked this question previously, but not quite succinct enough, I think. I have a Pioneer home theater receiver that is network capable, but not wireless capable. I want to get this thing on my home network without having to purchase another device as my Mini resides no more than 36" away from it.So far, I have been able to get the receiver to connect to the internet through Internet Sharing on the Mini, but it remains blind to, and invisible to my wireless network. I simply want to connect the receiver to my Mini via ethernet cable and have it see and be seen on my wireless network. url...

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.3), 2.7 GHz i7, 256 GB SSD, 8GB RAM
