Posted: Mon Jun 07, 2010 9:39 Post subject: Slow Speed
First time testing DD-WRT, and tried a file transfer from one computer to the other (using a windows file share).
Using gigabit LAN on the old firmware, I got the read/write speed of the slower drive (about 30MB/sec) and about %25 of bandwidth, but it varied greatly (from 10 to 30MB/sec, prob due to the HDDs involved)
Now with DD-WRT, I'm getting a constant transfer speed of exactly 3.98MB/sec(+-0.03) with a constant network use of 3.66%(+-0.1), and while doing a file transfer, remote desktop is slower because the network seems completely cap'd.
To me, that looks like some kind of bandwidth cap of come kind, but I can't figure out what would cause this. I really installed DD-WRT to use some kind of VPN in a school network, but if I can't get good file transfer speeds, it's really pointless.
LAN to LAN? LAN to WLAN?

It seems to be a LAN-LAN transfer which would go through the internal switch without any interaction with the router's software (firmware), so it's probably something else causing the slowdown. _________________ Read the forum announcements thoroughly! Be cautious if you're inexperienced.
