Thread: Data Transfur Thru Networking

  1. #1
    my m8 has a 21mb file that i need on my pc and we are networked. when ever i go onto his pc and and simply tryu and move the file to myu hard drive the pc just restarts str8 away. and if i try and drag the file from his pc to mine my pc bombs out and says not accessable or some sh!t like that.

    msn was taking ages. 2 hours for 15mb on a broandband connection and then it suddenly restarded (m8's pc not mine, cause the connection to fail)

    are there any other ways of transfuring data.

    PS he dont have a cd writer


    any help wod b much apreciated(sp?) thnx

    btw im hoping (sp?)means spelling mistake

    how are your pc's connected and what os's are being used. is it just this file that causes your pc to crash.

    Is the folder the file is in shared? (right click on folder>properties>share>share this folder), if not try it, you may have to config your OS for a network connection first time too, but it sounds like this is done.

    And do either of you have a software-based firewall, if you do, try turning it/them off, it should speed up the transfer.

    Have you tried opening up ports on your router?, if it's a firewall combo.

    Otherwise try updating the drivers for your network cards.

    i have a real problem with my firewall/router im always having sh!t like this. i cant use bittorent cause of it. bloody socks5. anyway yes it is shared no software based firewall but whatever my router is doig. can only open ports 1080 and 4480 (kazaa lite and msn are the only things that work as far as i know) btw i have idea about networking and sh!t./ i even got a guy to network everything for us. for some reason it took 2 hours to send 15mb's and then failed 15mb's! for 600k broadband!!!

    When you did that test, was it within your network at home? If so the connection ought to be 100 Mbit one, a 10 Mbit one or a gigaBit one. 15MB should pass through under a minute. Maybe you had something incoming from an outside source, were you connected to the internet?

    Have you tried getting a cross-connected cable and connected the computers directly, bypassing the router? that should show you whether it's the router that's acting up. What brand is it btw?

    Have you checked the inbuilt firewall in WinXP?(yes, there is one), if that's turned on it might be the culprit.

    Have you turned any modules off in XP?, to get get more free Ram or something like it, if so try setting everything back to default.

    Have you any other progams that connects to the internet, like automatic AV upgrades, or some other automatic upgrades? turn those off if so, in fact turn as many programs off as possible, before doing a transfer, especially any that may want an open connection for some reason.
