Hey guys,

Im having massive problems with my home network. Im running windows home server on a pentium 4 with 4gig ram and 1 terra ext harddrive also have a laptop with windows 7 intel core duo2.13ghz 4gigram. The modem/router is feeding adsl2+ via a billion BiPAC 7404VNPX all relevent ports are open and have remote desktop connectivity.

Transferring files to and from the server is painfully slow everything is wireless within a 10 meter radius and at the moment im getting 1.09mb per sec.

Ive done some research and ive heard that its due to not using ipv6, ive heard that its because ive still got a sata drive installed in the home server but im just wondering if theres any obvious problems ive missed.

Do i need ports open?Should i have a wired system. It shouldnt take an hour to move one 700mb film should it?

Any help ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Wireless is not the most reliable and best performing for a network. It could suffer from interferences caused by other wireless networks nearby, or even some cordless phones.

For best performance always use a ethernet cable.
