    Increase transfer speed of windows file transfer (SMB)


    I have setup a shared drive so I can access my files with my Android devices but the transfer speed is very slow around 500 KB - 1.5 MB per second. My QNAP NAS that also using SMB is transfering very fast up to 12 MB/s. Can i increase transfer speed of SMB?

    :)

  2. Bluetooth 3.0 in the Nokia N8. Really?

    I bought a BT3.0 dongle specifically to enjoy the increased speeds. I attached it on a different computer than the one with BT2.1 and measured the transfer speed.

    The difference was a joke! The transfer speed went from 160 kB/s to 200 kB/s!!! There are no tangible/real world benefits from the touted BT3.0 support! I would call that deceptive advertising, unless Nokia can show that using a specific BT dongle one can
    reach a respectable percentage of the theoretical 24Mbps speed.

  3. N95 8GB SUPER SLOW USB TRANSFER PROBLEM

    Well the MAPS issue is different as the speed is affected by the Speed of the MAPS server, and NOT the transfer speed of USB.

    The speed of the USB in FILE TRANSFER or MASS STORAGE MODE or MUSIC TRANSFER is about 700-800 KBps (that's kilo bytes). So 700 MB should take about 17 mins and not 2 hours.

    If you are using PC Suite or Bluetooth, then you getter do the transfers overnight as they do take a loooong time.

    Bottom line, use File Transfer or Music Transfer (Windows Media Player is needed) to tranfer music or other files.

    Increase transfer speed of windows file transfer (SMB)

    Android smb shares are always slow.

    I use Fast File Transfer which when in wifi direct mode gets up to 5 MB/s but have never managed to get more. This uses http protocol rather than smb.

    Fast file transfer app is in google playstore and easy to use. Nothing is needed on pc side - all done from a browser.

    In the end, usb tethering is quickest way.

    You cannot change them, only the two devices can. Mobile devices are going to end up with a permanent choke point when doing transfers, because it needs to do more CRC checksums between each packet, along with the Wifi Access Point has a lot to deal with being able to properly transfer the packets without a lot of FEC or CRC errors.

    OP - this really will not help smb transfers to android devices. Android devices maxium wifi speed is normally limited to 72Mbps ie 8 MB/s. As with all speeds, that is the maximum theoretical burst speed and real world average speed is around 50-70% of that. Fast file transfer app reaches around 4-5 MB/s which is probably about as fast as you are ever going to get.

    You can analyse your maximum wifi lan speed using

    Increase transfer speed of windows file transfer (SMB)

    I'm not always on pc all the time and this are more complicated. I like the way to get quick access to my PC drives without having to turn on/off whatever

    Nah I have 5 GHz wifi and it's faster than you expected. SMB on my NAS works 2 times better than Windows. Since my NAS have an app that syncs my whole files between PC and NAS continuously, i'm using that method instead and access my files in my NAS without having to keep my pc on. much much better.

    Problem solved *Smile
