I'm far from an expert on home networking, but looking to get into it in the near future. At the moment I am with UPC 50mb broadband, and have the Thompson TWG870 router in my TV room downstairs (my only option at this point). Connected to the router via Ethernet I have three pieces of kit:
- Playstation 3
- LaCie La Cinema 2TB (which holds most of my video files, and is also connected to the TV and surround sound)
- Zyxel NAS310 2TB (which I'm looking to use to hold my music collection and overflow from the LaCie)
When I have files on my laptop and I'm looking to transfer them to either the LaCie or the Zyxel, I'm getting speeds of circa 2.5MB/second maximum. Is there a way for me to improve the transfer speed, as sending a 4GB HD movie file can become a bit tedious. Is there any piece of kit that I can buy to improve my wireless transfer speeds?
Perhaps I'm being a bit greedy but I'm sure there must be a way of achieving better speeds!
