OS X :: Slow Wireless File Transfer Speed In LAN

I have an iMac and MBP. When I transfer files over the network (wireless) from one computer to the other, it is quite slow. I think around 1~1.5mb/sec. Is this normal or expected performance on file transfer via wireless? If so what can I do to increase the performance? Settings on the wireless router?

MacBook Pro :: New MBP 17", Slow Wireless Internet Crippled During File Transfer?
just got my 17" MBP today and it's beautiful. Playing a lot learning a lot (my first mac). Having one big headache though.What's up with the wireless speeds? I did some file copying from my Vista machine connected via ethernet and speeds were fine. Now I'm trying to copy some stuff from my girlfriends iMac over wireless (using a linksys wrt54g, both connected at G) and it's just balls slow. I'm talking about a meg a second, the hell?Now, what's really making me upset is the fact that it's also crippling my internet speeds when I'm doing this wireless to wireless file copy. It's like it's pegged so bad at the super fast 1mb/sec that I can't even browse the web without it timing out half the time. Internet is fine when the file copy is not happening.

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).

Mac Pro :: USB 2.0 Transfer Speed Slow?
I am trying to transfer 12.6 gigs to a flash drive via USB 2.0. it says it will take a little more than an hour.

I tried all the ports. Front and back.

Same issue.

I tried a different flash thumb drive ands I got an estimate of 14 hours. LOL.

But consistently I am getting about an hour.

Isn't that long for 12.6 gigs via USB 2.0?

Apple support says it is not.

OS X :: Extremely Slow Transfer Speed From External HD To Macbook
This ended up being pretty long but I tried to include as many details as possible. If any more information is needed please just let me know in this thread. I have been trying to figure this out all day and it has been driving me nuts. First of all I have a Macbook with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB of RAM and am running Mac OS X Version 10.5.6. Also this is the last generation of the "white" macbook that came out in February I believe of last year.

My external HD is a 1TB Rock Mobile Disk. For some reason when I try to transfer files to or from the external HD to my Mac I am getting nowhere near the expected 480MB/s. I do use a Swiss Gear 4-port USB splitter. When I use the splitter I am getting a transfer rate of about 120MB/s and without it I am only getting about 300MB/s. This is of course if I am only trying to transfer one 800MB movie. If I attempt to transfer multiple seasons of television shows it will drop to as low as 40-50MB/s. Also, if I were to be transferring a single season of a TV show. The transfer speed is much faster to click and drag every episode from my HD to my Mac than it is to transfer the entire folder at once. The whole folder might take 25 minutes but one at a time it will only take about 5.

OS X Leopard :: Extremely Slow Wireless Speed
I have tried internet speed tests on two laptops, one being a macbook and the other being a HP laptop running Windows Vista. I am meant to be getting 10mb download speeds and get it on the Windows Laptop using both ethernet and wireless connections, however when I use the macbook I get 10mb download speeds with Ethernet but not with wireless. I have tried changing the DNS servers to OPEN DNS on both my router and macbook but this did not help. fix this problem and get my wireless speeds the same as my Ethernet speeds. I am running Leopard 10.5.7 and upgraded a few days ago, I also used software update to update the rest of my software. [URL]

PowerPC :: IMac G3 Wireless Speed Slow
The iMac G3 is a 2002 model, has a 600 mghz processor and 1 GB RAM. It does not have an AirPort wireless card and Apple no longer manufacturers an AirPort card for this machine (which I bought used), so I bought a USB wireless adapter that appears to pick up a pretty strong signal from my Verizon FiOS router, strongest of course when parked next to the router. Unfortunately, I am only able to generate 3.5-4.2 mbps download speed no matter how close I am to the router, whereas the machine can consistently download at 12-15 mbps with a direct ethernet connection. The FiOS router can download at speeds in excess of 20 mbps. Is there some setting I'm overlooking that can improve the wireless connection speed or am I going to have to settle for wired use only?

MacBook Pro :: 2010 13" Slow FW800 Transfer Speed
I purchased a FW800 enclosure for my Seagate 500GB 5400rpm HD. I just got a 2010 13" MBP. I was previously using a 2006 MBP with an ExpressCard slot, and had this hard drive connected over eSATA. According to TomsHardware the max sustained write speed of this drive is around 65MB/s, which is what I was getting over eSATA. So I got the FW800 enclosure now that I can't use eSATA with the thought that I'd be getting the same 65MB/s that this drive is capable of. FW800 should be able to handle up to 100MB/s. But I'm only getting around 40MB/s, closer to what I should be getting if I was using FW400.

Hardware :: Data Transfer Slow Speed Rate To Time Capsule
I did some experimenting this evening to assess data transfer rates to various storage items in my home network which uses a new Time Capsule as the router/hub.

Connected to the Time Capsule are the following:
- Mac Pro (GigE)
- Vista Machine (GigE)
- MBA (Wifi)
- Raptor Drive (USB 2)
- Time Capsule Drive (Internal)

Transferring a 650MB file between devices yielded the following results:
MP > Vista (GigE) = 288 Mbps
MP > MBA (5GHz) = 52 Mbps
MP > MBA (2.4GHz) = 43 Mbps
MP > Raptor (TC USB) = 38 Mbps
MP > TC Drive (Internal) = 38 Mbps
MBA (5GHz) > TC Drive (Internal) = 22 Mbps

It seems that transferring files to a USB drive or the internal drive on the Time Capsule is painfully slow. It took 2:20 to transfer the 650MB file to the Time Capsule over GigE vs. 0:20 seconds to another machine. What's worse, is that the data transfer speeds to the TC are a function of link speed, the slower your connection, the slower your transfer rates. It's not simply limited by some bottle-neck in the TC. It took 3:45 to transfer the same file to the TC from the MacBook Air over the 5GHz WiFi connection. When I complained about this the other day at the Apple store, the "Genius" said that it's due to QOS built into the router to ensure it doesn't kill my web browsing.

Mac Pro :: USB Flash Drive Transfer Speed Extremely Slow?
I have a 32GB Verbatim USB Flash Drive. The speed is 480Mb/sec. My mac is a MacPro running 10.5.8.

For some reason the transfer speeds from the computer to the flash drive is really slow. 2gb file takes 3 hours to transfer. I tested the flash drive on another MacPro and the transfer speeds were normal.

I have reformatted the flash drive (as FAT32) but it doesn't seem to help that much.

Anyone have this problem before and know whats up? This thing is basically unusable right now...

IMac Intel :: Wireless Dropouts - Slow Speed - What's Apple Waiting For
i switched a month ago from a pc to a mac (intel imac 20" , 2,4ghz) and i must say that it's great, except this : My wifi connections has a lot of trouble! a lot of dropouts , and even if i keep a strong signal for a while (yeah,some days it keep a descent signal!) i ALWAYS have slow internet speed (using firefox,but is the same with safari) my brother has a macbook pro , and at the same place, he got 100% full strength, and NO DROPOUTS a few days a go we buyed time capsule, we use it now as the main wifi routeur,because with the 80.11N we are supposed to have a MAX range extension , and more fast surfing!

well, brother and my father ( macbook pro 5G & macbook pro 2009) , yes, they have a faster and stronger connection, but I HAVE IT WORST THAN WITH THE OLDER ROUTEUR ( US robotics 9108 with a 7db wifi antenna ) and i just updated today, a security update was inculed, now i have dropouts EVERY 5-10 minutes!!
so, i know a lot of people have this kind of problem here, it's not a new problem,so my question is simple :

WHAT ARE THE SOLUTION TODAY? if solution there is! does apple work on this problem to fix it, or not?do they RECOGNIZE that there is a problem? and if there's no solution possible, can i connect a kind of "usb wifi key" like those for windows? hope that someone can give me a CLEAR answer , even if it is to tell me that it never will be resolved!

MacBook Pro :: Wireless Internet Slow Speed - Cannot Watch YouTube Videos
I thought I fixed it with a wireless-n router and it worked perfectly till now. I was loading videos on youtube in seconds with no buffering and fully loaded, and could stream even 1080hd videos on there and other sites no problem. Now the MBP is going slow again, like there's this lag when browsing, and I can't even watch youtube videos anymore unless their 240p as anything else buffers every couple of seconds.

It's not the internet, as like I've said before I have an pc in another room across the condo on the wireless network and its blazing fast browsing and watching/streaming videos. I've seen other post about this lately and really leading me to believe these $ MBP just suck on wireless networks, b/c I can be right next to my router and no changes... and my girlfriends cheap netbook can stream videos faster with no buffering then my expensive piece of aluminum.

I saw someone else say enter this for DNS and I had already done that, so is something screwed up here?:
and Search Domains next to that says: domain

OS X Leopard :: Wireless Internet Fast But Local Data Transfer Slow
So I'm presently befuddled by a problem I'm having with my home network. The network comprises two computers, both running Leopard 10.5.6, connecting through a Netgear RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N router. Both computers connect to the internet seamlessly, and with admirable download speeds. The problem is that their local connection works painfully slowly. Both computers readily appear in the finder under "shared devices." The initial connection takes a bit longer than I'd think it should, but nothing outrageous.

However, if you try to copy a file from one machine to the other, the transfer takes forever to set itself up, and then takes about a minute to transfer a 1 MB file. If you connect both machines to the router via ethernet cable, the transfer speeds are perfect. It's just wireless that has a problem -- though as I mentioned above, in terms of connection my MBP to the internet, the wireless is working perfectly. The problem is isolated to wireless, local networking.

OS X :: Super Slow File Transfer After Clean Install
I first submitted this in another section of the forums thinking it had to do with my external HD, to only find out later it's a problem across my entire iMac, not just the external. It's nearly impossible to transfer files from anything other than my internal HD *to* my internal HD. What I mean is, when I try to move a file from my external HD, a shared computer via ethernet, or a mounted .dmg, it's transferring at something like 1mb per second or less. I got my copy of Leopard (10.5.6) 2 Fridays ago (I know, I'm late), and first did an upgrade. Everything was wonky, so I did an archive & install. Everything was still a little unstable feeling, so I opted for a clean install. I moved all my precious files over to my LaCie FW HD, confirmed them, and started onto the clean install and let that run while I slept. When I woke up, I had a brand new fresh installation of Leopard with the glorious BG, and I couldn't have been happier.

I started to move my files over manually (I wasn't using the migration assistance because I was organizing my files as I went considering time was not an issue), and first on the list was my music. I opened up iTunes, set my prefs, and started to import from my external HD. ..I just assumed it was taking a long time because I had around 7000 files of both music and video. But when I went to work, came home, took a nap, woke up, and it still wasn't done, it made me wonder. I assumed it was Spotlight doing it's thing on top of the iTunes import, and left it alone. But now when I'm trying to move over files only a few mbs, it slows to a halt. I tried to install Adium from a .dmg by first moving it into my Applications folder.. it's something like 50mb and it took about 10m. I had been expecting to drag the icon over and here that "ding" you hear when a file has successfully moved. The funny thing about this is that, when I look at the Activity Monitor, nothing's really doing much of anything. So then why is it taking 5hrs to move over a few gigs? Here's a screen shot:

Hardware :: Time Capsule File Transfer Too Slow
purchased a Time Capsule today for use with my MBP. it is super super slow.. I can't believe it. How come there were so many good reviews on the Apple site? I hooked it up via ethernet cable, NOT via wireless and it's as slow as this. right now it's showing 3.4mb and 17 000 hours.

Hardware :: How About The File Transfer Rate In Wireless Mode
I am deciding to buy a TimeCapsule within next week because my Seagate FreeAgent 500 Gb is already full. But I still not sure about its functionality and warranty coverage.1. How about the file transfer rate in wireless mode(802.11n)?2. Can I use the USB port of TimeCapsule with my old Seagate FreeAgent to expand the capacity?3. Is there any way to install a bittorrent software on TimeCapsule? like Asus WL-500W4. Is it fully support Windows XP?5. Can I use it as a repeater? Is this an option provided in Airport utility?6. I have just purchased an AppleCare for my MACBook pro but I am not sure about it coverage.

MacBook Pro :: Freezing / Slow Installations And File Transfer
I bought the latest MacBook Pro model and installed Snow Leopard on a cleanly formatted hard drive. I have tried migrating via ethernet and FireWire from my iMac, but the migrations failed either due to freezing (via FireWire after roughly 24 hours of file transfer) or by an error message (ethernet with Migration Assistant). Only through a Time Machine backup was I able to transfer my account files to the MBP, which again totaled at over 20 hours of transferring. The system was a mess, clogged constantly by freezing and spinning beach balls of death for durations lasting around 10-20 seconds during which music would clip after 5-10 seconds of everything not responding, this being accentuated especially during installations. I decided to format and try anew. Now I've formatted the hard drive, installed Snow Leopard and will transfer my files manually onto a clean account.

Installations take a long time although SL installation is within 30 minutes, iLife took 1.5 hours to install 5 GB. During the installation Safari stopped responding, as did the entire system, and the spinning beach ball would keep spinning. Watching a 480p trailer in Quicktime made the entire computer freeze up (no video/audio) for 10 seconds halfway. Transferring 136 GB (my Music folder) will take around 15 hours according to the estimate after 10 minutes of transferring. I've sold my iMac now and all I have are the files on my external hard drive. I want to get them onto my MBP ASAP but the slowness is preventing me from doing what needs to be done and it's very frustrating. When I try to boot into Hardware Testing by holding D down the computer doesn't do it no matter what (Application DVD in or not, plugged into power or not). I've tried resetting PRAM but I get the same inaction.

OS X :: SMB/File Transfer Slow With Windows Server 2003?
After some searching, I've seen three tricks: disabling IPV6 on the Mac, doing the same on the PC (my Windows Server 2003 installation didn't have it installed), and adding a line to my /etc/smb.conf file. None seem to really give me full transfer speeds.

Are there any tricks specific to Windows Server 2003 or anything new to make this work like normal? It's simple file transfer over SMB, seems like at the 5th iteration of Mac OS X we'd have better speeds.

Mac Mini :: Bluetooth Keyboard Slow To Respond During File Transfer?
I have a pc that syncs to my mac mini. On the PC there is a mapped drive for a folder on the mini. When the app is running the sync and copying files over everything on the mac seems to be running fine except for the bluetooth keyboard that I have connected to the mini. The keyboard becomes almost unresponsive and if I try and type it will sometimes not register any key presses or it may see multiple. Once the file transfer stops everything is back to normal....

OS X :: File Transfer Rate Between MBP (late2009) And External Is Extremely Slow?
I am wondering why my MBP takes about 7-8 mins to copy 700 mb files from the external (Seagate FreeAgent pro 500 Gb) and of course, it takes about 1 hour to copy 7 Gb files.

However, this problem has occurred only copying file from external to my MBP, the transfer rate is fine when copying files from MBP to external

Note : I've already repair the disk by using disk utilities, but it doesn't help me at all.

MacBook Pro :: WIFI Speed Very Slow / Speed Test Shows It Is Fast
I have a MPR 2.53 ghz, 4 gig ram, I'm using Safari 4.04. I am using the WIFI at a guesthouse in Thailand (but I had the same issue in China, Vietnam ...).

I ran a speed test and it said download 7mb/sec and upload about 1mb/sec. I have an "app" that says bandwidth in 1.3kb/sec out 1.0kbs. I thought maybe it was Safari so I downloaded and installed Firefox. firefox gives me similar speeds. When I downloaded Firefox though I had a download speed of over 1mb/sec. But as soon as it finished downloading the speed went back to around 1kb/sec. I have rebooted my MBP many times. I did some Google searches but didn't find anything helpful.

Snow Leopard :: LAN Transfer Only 1 Way 10.5 Or 10.6
I posted this before when running OS 10.5 Have now upgraded to OS 10.6.1 and problem still exists.

Alcatel 546v6 4P wired Router.

Transfer files 10.6.1 (or previously 10.5) to iMac running 10.4.10 and transfer stalls requiring a Finder relaunch.

Logged into machine with 10.4.10 as 'owner.' (I think, as 10.6.1 never asks?) Only part of transfer succeeds.

Transfer the other way (from machine 10.4.10) and logging into 10.6.1 as 'Owner' (10.4.10 asks me for 'owner') file transfer works ok?

Have tried several different Permissions in 10.4.10 but nothing works.

From 10.6.1 get info on 'transfer-to' shows I have 'Custom Access.'

OS X Leopard :: Wireless And LAN On Same IP?
We have a lot of wireless users who keep forgetting to plug laptops back into LAN and so their assigned IP is DHCP-based in range x.x.x.1-50. This is annoying because the machine keeps moving around in ARD lists. We use a Microsoft 2003 Server for DHCP allocations and I thought of assigning a reserved address to each machine, but using same IP for wireless and LAN. As the wireless is always on will this cause problems if they plug in the LAN cable? Seems to me that they'd be a clash, but unless you're using port teaming the Mac is using either wireless or lan not both, surely? Interested to hear what people think and if anyone's tried it.

MacBook :: Wireless LAN Interfere With Bluetooth?

However, when I use my wireless LAN at home to transfer movies or songs or whatever between my iMac which I now use as a server, and my Macbook, my Apple wireless keyboard and mighty mouse drop their connection frequently, or there is a lag with the mouse across the screen. My Macbook has been like this since the day I got it on the 6th of November 2008 and I've recently begun to wonder if this is normal.

MacBook Air :: Slow Opening Apps - Slow Read Speed?
I'm finding my MBA rev b to be quite slow opening apps, I bought the 1.6 ghz 120gb model.

It seems like everything's rather slow to open. I have 30gb free on the hard drive, iTunes, Safari (5 tabs) TextWrangler and mail open all day.

If I ever need to go into Firefox it takes a fair while to get up and running. I ran some xbench scores and it seems very slow on the random reads, oddly it was much quicker writing to the disk than reading.

Is their anyone in the know who can confirm that this is normal? Or if not, is there anything I can do to give it a boost?

OS X :: Webpage Loading Very Slow / Slow Internet Or CPU Speed?
Is there a way to tell which one is slow, if anything is going slow? I have an extremely old PC which is normally ok for most things, but gets bogged down if I am doing too many things.I was so annoyed with our national real estate site after they changed the format that I wrote a letter once a long time ago.. and I was ready to let them have it again, listing all the reasons why it is so bad and so much worse than the original.

Today for the first time, I accessed the site ( using my new iMac. It was like lightening speed, comparatively speaking.Wow, suddenly I knew why the mls people hadn't changed their new format.But then I started going to other sites.. like for example, and it was slow as heck... and stalling.. etc.
How would I be able to tell whether it is an internet slowness or the computer being slow?

I've recently converted the whole family to Macs! So I finally have a use for Bonjour in iChat. We have a cabled network at home using 10/100MB switches (so it aint a gigabit LAN). The connection doctor comes up and says that I can't host a multiperson video chat, because the connection is too slow and also that I can't share my screen for the same reason. The odd thing is that I can share my screen, but it refuses to allow me to host the multiperson video conference.

IMac Intel :: Wireless LAN - Disconnect Every Time
Some month ago I decided to buy a refurbished iMac 20". The iMac was delivered with 10.5.6. WLan was working fine. After upgrading it to 10.5.7 I cannot connect via WLan. The connection breaks down. My other Apple hardware (iBook 12", iPhone) as well as my business Laptop (Toshiba) can still connect via WLan and hold a stable network. Only the f... iMac is not working. The internet is full of reports where other users have same problems. I have to mention that the WLan Router is from AVM (modell: 7050). They too knew the problem, but the router is to old to get a firmware update. It seems to me that I should consider changing the computer manufacturer as well as the router manufactorer. What have I done since yet: change the WLan channel, switched of IPV6, entered an open DNS server.
