I have a XBMCBuntu machine that holds all my HDD's and is connected to my TV.
If I move a 120MB file to my wifes machine it will take about 5sec ~11MB/s
If I move the same file from my machine to my XBMCBuntu machine it takes about 5min ~500KB/s
If I copy that same file from the XBMCBuntu machine it takes about 10sec ~6MB/s
This is a test I did 2days ago.
And I have mapped the drives of the XBMCBuntu machine in my computer, and it sometimes take a long time
to look trough the folders.
All machines are connected to a 10/100/1000 switch, and all the machines (3 of them) should be 10/100/1000 capable
If I download a ~200MB video trough utorrent I will get the video in few minutes, but it will stay at 99.9% for a long time
or until i've stopped it, force checked, rinse and repeat it couple of times.
I used a program called Lan speed test (lite) to check the connection.
I made a 100MB package to send to the XBMCBuntu machine, yesterday it went to 53MB of the package in few secs, then the speed dropped and
it took few minutes to send the rest of the package.
Just earlier I did it again, 100MB file, it jump right to 11MB then about 2 min later it stopped around 18MB and gave me the error "Error while writing data to test file!"
I restarted the machine and send the same package with the Lan program, waited for like 15 minutes until the program stopped responding.
I tried it again and used just a 20mb file, it got written in just 2sec. then the Lan program stops responding and
shows the status "Writing Data...Done: Waiting for the file to close"
This problem only started to occur maybe 2 weeks ago, and it's been slowly getting worse and worse, now I
cant move files to it, because it takes for ever.
Any one that could help me with this problem?
