Network bandwidth?

Is it normal for a 10Mbps LAN to use only about 30% of the bandwidth? I have disabled the QoS Service (or whatever) but it didn't go up.

What are you using to measure it ?

there are many things which affect network bandwith , topology , cablinmg etc

tell us more about your setup

its strange they say 10mbps cards but you will be hard to achieve that

It depends on what you are transfering. Short files do not take up as much bandwidth. When transfering large files over my 10mbit LAN, my utilization is 70% in the Task Manager (without any tweaks and QoS running).

Depends on length of the Cable, after a certain distance it looses its speed.:eek:

It could also be due to the fact that you're on a P200MMX. It shouldn't really be so, but if the computer can't handle sending data that fast, be it limited by the processor, memory or bus speed. How are you measuring the bandwidth usage?

i just look it in the Task Managers network tab. I have tested with some program (don't remember the name) that my hdd is capable to transfer averagely 7MB/s, so the bottleneck isn't my hdd. the cable is 4m long, so it shouldn't lose that much of it's efficiency. i don't use a twisted pair cable, it's a BNC cable.

--edit edit:
i tried transferring small files (about 4%) and a 400mb chunk (around 30%), and both machines' hdd:s are defragged just a couple of days ago.
