I have my server hardlined to my router, server is running windows 8 pro, raid 5 array. I am on my laptop thats running windows 7, via wifi to the network. When i transfer a file from my laptop to my server, i hover just under 7 mb/s. that seems slow to me, unless my problem is my laptop being connected via wifi. When i first set up my server, i bridged my connection from my laptop to the server and i beleive the transfer rates were close to the same, maybe a little more i cant rememebr, idk if that helps. the router i have is a Linksys E4200. any suggestions?

thanks

You haven't provided enough info.

1. How fast is a transfer on the server itself?
2. Is the server connected at gigabit speed to the router?
3 How fast is the transfer rate from the laptop to the server (and from the server to the laptop) when it's connected via gigabit Ethernet?

1. Yes. If you have a local drive on the server, then where is the RAID? Is it an external enclosure?
3. You could test using both the array and what yoy call the local drive on the server.

Can you confirm the 7mb is tru 7mb, not 7MB/s
Eight b equal one B :-)
If you get 7MB/set (equiv. to 70Mb/s) that is pretty good for Wifi.
