I have two PC, with Win98 OSR2 install, connect to a router(with 10MB network card), sometime I need transfer files between these 2 PC, but the speed is low, usually 700-800KB/s, how can I make the speed faster? any patch I need to patch from Microsoft? thk!

okay, that network card is actually 10MegaBIT, not byte, if you are getting 700-800megaByte transfers, thats about right after overhead.

1.2MBytes per second = 1.2*8bits/byte = 9.6 megaBITS per second and is really fast for a network transfer on a 10Mb card.

Usually network transfers are about 50% of the total transfer capacility, so the 700-800kB/s is ~ 5.6-6.4Mb/s which is expected. Why not get a 10/100 card, they are less than 20 bucks.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
