    Real world maximum wifi transfer speeds?


    A question out of curiosity, not need or a problem.
    It seems to be pretty well known that the fastest internet transfer speeds come through a connection using an ethernet cable, and for various reasons including signal processing overhead, a wifi connection can not reach wired connection speeds.

    The question is how do you reach the fastest wifi speed? There appears to be a combination of wifi adapters, routers and routers which result in speed that approach the so-called claimed maximum rates which appear to be unattainable.
    Some say that wifi overhead will result in internet wireless speeds that can be no better than half of the wired transfer rates, but is this always the case?
    Does anyone really know the hardware and setting combination that leads to really fast wifi, or is this a mystery or a secret?

    Increase transfer speed of windows file transfer (SMB)


    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 Real world maximum wifi transfer speeds? :)

    Slow File Transfer Speeds (WiFi)

    Hi Ruz,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have checked out all your suggestions, but nothing has so far improved the transfer speeds. To clarify the issue:

    My requirement is to transfer files from my desktop PC to my laptop. The desktop is connected to the network with an Ethernet cable.

    When connecting the SB2 to the network by Ethernet, the cable is connected to the laptop via an Ethernet > USB C connector, attaining transfer speeds of around 100 MB/sec. When connecting via WiFi, the transfer speeds drop to around 30 MB/sec, whether I
    am using the built-in WiFi adapter or the new, third party adapter.

    By way of comparison, I am achieving transfer speeds of around 80 MB/sec when transferring to my 8-year old MacBook Pro via WiFi in the same environment.

    According to various internet speed test utilities, I do not have any issues when uploading/downloading via Ethernet or WiFi, which give similar results.

    To summarise, the only issues seems to be the file transfer speeds when using WiFi.
