Hi, I have a desktop and a laptop computer. both equipped with Gigabit Lan port... I connect them with Straight cable by assigning both computers IP address. I havnt use any switch or router between computers.... The problem is that my transfer speed is about= ~10MB/s..... As far i know the transfer speed should be around 70-80MB/s (125MB/s for Gigabit Lan)..... i cant figure out the problem.......... plz let me know the solution.......
Thanks

Best solution

You need a crossover cable to directly connect two PC's.

Why not just buy a cheap Gbit switch?

Go to the properties on each NIC, then choose configure. Try setting each NIC to 1 Gbps full duplex. See if that helps.
