  1. Yes and it's easy with Windows 7,
    Just set up to share internet and files(home network), then grab what you need

    This might help u more, as u don't need the internet, just the 300 gigs and then you're done:

  2. your data transfer speeds will be limited by your hdd speeds as long as you have 10/100/1000 Ethernet on your computers/router so transferring over wireless will not be any slower. 300 gigs will take about an hour maybe more depending on your hdd speeds.

    how to determine the hdd speed anyway ?

    you can use hdd tune but really it doesnt matter. most sata 2 hdds transfer from 60-120mbps, sata 3 120-160. decrease the MBps by 10% for every partition the drive has.
    if your transferring from 1 partition to another on the same drive you may or may not get a speed decrease depending ob how many drive platters the drive has and how the drive is setup.
    but like i said its not really gonna slow the ethernet/wireless speeds, they have more than enough bandwidth to cope.
