|this isn't a huge problem, but it does make me curious:
I start downloading a 400mb file from the webserver computer to another computer in my lan. The speed starts out at 1000kb/sec which makes sense to me (since it is a LAN), but it slowly goes down and stays at about 300kb/sec. My network is under no use other than this transfer of this 400mb file, so:
Why can't it stay at a really high speed? Such as at least 500kb/sec
I've had transfers of 700kb/sec with a ftp server running in my network, so I know high speeds are possible.
I have a netgear router
I am downloading through wireless (but it is not limited because of that)
dunno what else.
