    Unhappy 350 Mbps Writing, 367 Mbps Reading

    Host: Sony Laptop (VGNAR730E) - Windows 7 32-bit Ultimate with stock Marvell Yukon 88E8055 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller with latest drivers (v11.45.4.3) running LAN Speed Test Server
    Client: HP Desktop (P6720F) - Windows 7 64-bit Home Professional with Generic Marvell Yukon 88E8053 based Ethernet Controller with latest drivers (v11.45.4.3) running LAN Speed Test v2.0
    Router: Cisco SA540

    My testing was performed completely over wired LAN, but there are a couple D-Link Gigabit switches between the two computers.

    I do have three Linksys E4200 v1's in *bridge mode* which is basically Wireless Access Point (WAP) mode. I did not test over wireless though.

    I would like to have a little better throughput, but I don't have time to troubleshoot to find the weakest link.

    Hey counsil, I moved you over to the wired results. Those numbers really aren't that bad. From my laptop to my quadcore that's about what I get. One of these days I should run around the house and get performance numbers on all my devices just for comparison's sake. Seeing my quadcore to quadcore numbers were astounding, everything else in my house, about what you posted here...

    I didn't realize there were two separate threads. Sorry about that. You know what this means... now I am going to have to test via wireless.

    I just ran around the house collecting network performance figures for all of our devices, it was a geeky day for me. Your numbers are about average of what I saw for most of our devices, although the Windows 7 devices were a little higher regardless of hardware. I'll post an article about this later this week. You might check out what the two quadcores got though, it was a little surprising to me. http://www.homenetworkenabled.com/fo...8-Mbps-Reading

    FYI, I used the speedguide.net TCP Optimizer program and had it 'optimize' all my Windows machines' NICs.

    I discovered that my laptop had all of its NICs MTU set to 1300. I changed them all to 1500, and I now get ~410 Mbps Writing and ~410 Mbps Reading. That's not a huge bump in throughput but enough for me to update this post!

    Nice! Had you set all of your MTUs to 1300 previously?

    I don't know why they were all set to 1300. I didn't do it (intentionally anyway).

    I rebooted our entire network last night (SA540, three E4200 v1's *used as APs*, switches, etc) and decided to re-run LST. I was able to achieve ~510 Mbps Writing and ~410 Mbps Reading. I'm not sure why the *Writing* numbers when up so much, but I'm guessing it's because I hadn't rebooted the switches in months. The routers are rebooted once a month. At any rate, I'm glad to see that my network is capable of higher throughput levels.

    Whoa, that's a sizeable improvement! Do you think it was just Windows 8? That raises some big OS questions...

    I have had this laptop for a few years. It first came with Vista, then was upgraded to Windows 7. I wouldn't allow them to put a clean install on it for various reasons. For example, I had too much work related items on it that I didn't have time to save off. There were also Sony related software packages installed that I didn't want to lose. This time, however, Windows 8 was loaded from scratch.

    I'm very interested to know what it does with a Windows 7 from scratch. OEM installs have a lot of bloatware that could have slowed it down. Windows 8 may be better on older hardware though as well. That would be counterintuitive to all past Windows upgrades.
