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.

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
