Hello all, I'm having a weird problem with my home network (ie a desktop and laptop hooked up via a cross-over cable). When I transfer files from the desktop to the laptop the speeds are quite nice (4.5 MB/sec), however when I try to send files from the laptop to the desktop the transfers are increadibly slow (12 KB/sec). I've tried fiddling with settings, updating the drivers I can't seem to improve the speed. I'm baffled why the up and down speeds would be different.
Here is the system information: Desktop: celeron 1.7ghz 256 mb aopen ax45-v with onboard lan Realtek rtl8136/810x lucent winmodem sb live! Geforce 3 (original not TI) 2 hds, 1 cdrw, 1 cd
Laptop: this is a standard Toshiba sattelite 1115-s103 the Nic is also a realtek rtl8139/810x
any help would be greatly appreciated.
