I have two laptops running windows 7 and hardwired via CAT5e ethernet cable. I am transfering data between them
Why am I getting only 20 Mbps transfer rate while I should be getting closer to 1000Mbps????? Wgere is the bottleneck??

Go to network connections and the NIC, Configure, Advanced and check the speed settings -- usually on Auto, try 100.

Do this on both machines.

Perhaps turn off anti-virus ?

If you want gig connections you need to set it at Auto. You can hard set it to 100 full as a test if you want.

Also check in your router and see what they are connecting at.
