Post Slow wired data transfer
Datatransfer in our workgroup at home is ridiculously slow. I get 18 KB/s max when transferring files to our server.
Transfer between other PC's is fine (Over 60MB/s) and I don't have any problem watching videos (11 to 12MB/s).
Flow control is disabled.

It has been a while since this is happening but no matter what I do, I can't seem to fix this.
We changed routers, virus-scanned, reinstalled the OS but nothing seems to bring back the decent speeds we used to have.
I can't imagine it is a problem with the harddisks since torrents easily go at 1MB/s.

Worst of all, almost forgot to mention is that utorrent has often shown this message recently.
Error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

I don't think it should be acceptable that it is faster to use external storage to transfer to the server.
Does anyone have any experience with this problem? I am at my wits end.

Sounds like either bad SATA/IDE drivers, or failing controller. Could also be the NIC. Could be the hard drive itself too.

Ensure drivers are up to date.
Run the manufacturer's hard drive tool to scan the drive for errors.
Try the drive in another PC, see if similar errors/slowness occur.

I recently experienced something similar and a replacement NIC resolved the issue. On a gigabit network transfers to this one PC would max at around 10MB/sec. Changing the drivers did nothing, but a replacement NIC got me back to 110MB/sec where it should be.

Run something like HDTach on the drive you are transferring the files to. If the drive is performing normally then I'd look at the NIC next.

I have been checking the harddisks and they seem to be okay. Thanks for the input everyone. I didn't really do anything but for some reason the normal speeds of 12 to 13 MB/s are back. I just don't get it, why now after all this time...

Well the server is only for home so it is a cheap motherbord with 10/100 speed. We only use it for watching and torrents so I'm glad. Never got 110 however we have cat5 cables and only get about 80MB/s with other PC's. I guess I could look for a 10/100/1000 card and some cat6 cables for cheap somewhere, but seems like overkill.
