Setting Up a Gigabit Network

Q: Setting Up a Gigabit Network

I am pretty much a novice with regards to networking. We recently built a new house and have wired it with cat 5e wire. I want to share my windstream internet connection over the network as well as be able to share files and use a drobo storage unit. I have a windstream router an a gigabit network switch. Will connecting a direct wire from the modem to the switch allow all the computers to gain access to the internet.

Preferred Solution: Setting Up a Gigabit Network

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Correct - - everything attach to the router or a switch hung off of it will be "in the same subnet" as there is only one router. Wifi and wired will look the same to all users and everyone can "play" at the same time

My house is currently wired with cat 6 wire in every room. We had an 8 port 10/100 switch under the stairwell but just upgraded to a gigabit switch. We have a cable modem and a linksys wireless router (10/100) on it is well. It is assigning the IP's on our network. Would I also need to get a gigabit router so that everyone on the network would get gigabit speeds providing they have the appropriate hardware? Sorry for the incoherence of this post, I hope somebody can make some sense of it.

Cannot get gigabit performance out of Nics in Win Locked mbps My motherboard is an Evga Sli Am motherboard with dual gigabit nics Having established that there is really no benefit to in network. stuck at Gigabit 100mbps Gigabit nic using both nics at the same time in another post I am now posting because it seems I am only getting mbps out of my nics even though all the cables in the network are cat e and both the router and switch in the network are gigabit capable I started researching this problem some time back on the net and came across threads where other folks were able to resolve by installing their specific Gigabit nic stuck at 100mbps in Gigabit network. network driver from mobo maker as opposed to the network driver bundled with chipset from nvidia I did some footwork then with drivers and was able to get my machine running at full gigabit speeds It ran this way for the past few weeks Gigabit nic stuck at 100mbps in Gigabit network. then when transfering a gb file from one machine on the network to another the other day noticed that the speed was locked at mbps I went under task manager network and noticed that the speed was back to mbps I am posting here to see if anyone has any advice The only option on my nic controller config and the one I used to get it working before is auto negotiate Gigabit is not listed Any help greatly appreciated

A:Gigabit nic stuck at 100mbps in Gigabit network.

I am guessing you checked this already, but can't hurt to post the info in case not.

Right click your network adapter in the device manager. Choose properties. Then advanced. For the link speed/duplex mode, choose 1000 mbps/full duplex or whatever setting is the closest to that. I don't have gigabit network so I can't say exactly. Also, if an update for the firmware of your router is available, that is always good to install.

If both nics are onboard, try disabling one of them (if not in use) in the bios or device manager.

Here's my settings though, where I'm saying to look. I know you said auto-negotiate is the only option. You're sure about that after checking again, right? Weird problem, heh. Perhaps another machine on the network is set to 100 mbps, thus defaulting your router to work at this speed also?

I just installed 2 D-Link Gigabit switches into my home network. The network connections all register as being "Gigabit" (through windows network center) yet when I ran PassMark, all I'm getting is an average of 64.51 Mbits/Sec (max 65.5Mbit/Sec).

used online converter to check my numbers:

How can this be?

1000Mbit = 1Gbits
65.5Mbits = 0.063964844Gbits

that's horrible!
update: I direct connected my laptop to my desktop and ran again. I'm still only seeing 65.5Mbits/Sec. I tried several different cables, all Cat5e. What am I missing?

Hello All,

I have a 4-6 gigabit cable modem and would like to use it to it's utmost.
Would it be worth it to purchase an 8 port gigabit router, and CAT6 cable to completely recable my home?

My main computer has a gigabit onboard NIC, and I would upgrade them all if this is worth doing.

Any opinions?

Hello guys,

I have a Linksys E3000 gigabit router and a recently bought edimax gigabit router(before I had edimax 100mbit router) that connected with 100M CAT6 cable between them but it seems that the network is running in 10mbit instead of 1gbps.

the network start sometimes with 100mbit if I sync between them but after a while the Autonegotiation mechanism drops it to 10mbit.

when I had the 100mbit edimax things run smooth on 100mb in 95mbps transfer rate and now its stuck on 9.5mbps.

Ideas please...

Running win xp on both pcs.

I need a solution to get this lan going!

I have a smc router attached to a switch from SMC GS8 with 1gbps (8 ports).

I have 2 pcs connected to the switch and this switch is comnnected to router

I have cat5e cables.

I need an ftp or something good to get the gigabit lan working with gbps transfers. I have 2 pci cards from Surecom in (one in) each computer with gbps support.

So, i know i cannot get the gbps from the windows interface... so i need another solution.

My intention is to transfer files from pc to pc, what can i do, an ftp, what?
Thanks a lot!!!!!

A:Gigabit lan with switch gigabit and router - how to transfer files

you need a working router/gateway, and the computers have to have valid IP configs (can they ping each other). then you can do the 'ol \\pcname command in your exploreer windows to brose the other pc.

My intention is to transfer files from pc to pc, what can i do, an ftp, what?Click to expand...

FTP is an acronym for file transfer protocol and is used for internet transfers. you needn't worry about this.

unless you need the extra ports on the switch, you'd be able to plug the two computers right into the router.

A:Slow Gigabit network performance on XP?

Welcome to the real world. You are experiencing what I feel is about normal performance, and it's about what I see here. I believe it's the SMB protocol overhead that limits the absolute performance, as well as the difference between server versions of Windows and workstation versions. I get much better performance over gigabit connections using server versions of Windows talking to workstations.

Hi everyone,

I've got a little networking problem and hope someone can help...

I have a Dell XPS 15Z with gigabit ethernet port, have dgs 1005d gigabit switch and WDTV live hub also with gigabit "capability"... The network cables should be fine...

The issue is that the file transfer (these are usually HD movies) from my laptop to WDTV are rather slow having in mind it's a gigabit network connection... The speed tops 15 MB/s. Same thing if I connect WDTV directly with my laptop. Any advice?

The switch indicates (green light) it has set-up a gigabit connection both with WDTV and my laptop.

I have disabled autotuning, RDC, AV software etc. Tried with jumbo frames, disabling flow control - EVERYTHING

I'm pretty desperate, so if someone out here could help, I would appreciate it...

What is the purpose of the intel 82566DC gigabit network connection.

A:File transfer speeds on Win 7 GIGABIT network ?

Sounds about right to me for copying one large file say a video several GB in size. My setup was just 2 PCs. An AMD dual core with a gigablit card I added on, and an AMD quad core with built in gigabit wired ethernet. On my setup copying in one direction seemed a bit faster than the other. The fastest seemed to be sending from the quad core to the other machine. But even in the reverse direction I got about 80% of the speed. Seems I recall copying say a 5 GB file from the quad to the dual would start out at over 90 MB/s then taper off to a steady 60 MB/s or so. So I'd say you're in good shape.

Why cant we get those transfers near gigabit?

A:Gigabit transfers rates! Why not gigabit values?

8 bits = 1 byte.

Therefore you transfer rate will theoretically be about 125 mega byte per second.

That will be lower because of harddrive limitations and overhead.

Win 7 x64 Professional Service Pack 1

It was working last night prior to the automatic update from Windows without issue.

I downloaded and installed the latest software for that adapter. Version = (date of driver Feb 2, 2012). The driver came as part of a PROSet Version directly from Intel.

In the Network Connections Properties Tabs, I am told that the device status is, "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

I've tried easy things like uninstalling and re-installling, disabling and re-enabling. Turning the router on and off.

I hoping someone can help. Cheers!

A:82578DC Gigabit Network Adapter - Error Code 10

The connection software often times will cause more problems than it solves. Have you tried uninstalling the connection software?

Have you tried to uninstall the latest Windows updates?

You might also try rolling back the driver to the previous version.

Hello everyone I decided to open this thread about a subject which has been discussed network gigabit using intranet transfer PCs Low speeds windows between widely in different forums on the net namely the extremely low transfer rates of data between PCs running Windows using a gigabit Low intranet transfer speeds between windows PCs using gigabit network network because I think to have observed something which - as far as I see - Low intranet transfer speeds between windows PCs using gigabit network was never reported anywhere else until now So this post is based on my report here which i will now republish in a slightly modified way I see the same problems many others are reporting i e low transfer rates between two windows PCs lt gt or lt gt over a gigabit network my transfer rates are never higher than MB s and go down to Low intranet transfer speeds between windows PCs using gigabit network a few MB s in many cases However I did carry out some test using the following software Downloads Totusoft And the results are impressive Testing the transfer of files of MB and GB in size I get up to Mbi s transfer rates in both direction and between all PCs which is what I would expect from my pc gigabit-network configuration So if transfer rates up to Mbi s are possible this corresponds to approx MB s if I'm not wrong than the problem cannot be hardware-related but must lie in some windows-related stuff I did not have this problem with my x win pc network only when I installed win on two of these PCs I started to get the limited rates For everyone observing the low transfer rates using the windows copy system please try the SpeedTestSoft I shared above run it more than one time to get some statistics and please report if you're observing the same stuff as I am So question remains what is the problem with windows which does not allow the high transfer speeds which are allowed on a hardware level Cheers

I have found a bug on 2 Pc(s) with Vista 64 and 32.

When i listen a sound (mp3, divx, dvd etc.) in windows -> the bandwidth become low.

I use iperf to see it and why i use this tool, it's because when i streaming from PC to my PC, it's work very well only if i disable the sound.

Without sound : the datarate is equal to 90Mbytes (my network is gigabit).
With sound if wmplayer, powerdvd, winamp etc. : the datarate is equal to 5.8Mbytes.

i see it too if i transfert file on net work, if no soft with sound is open -> All work done.

Thx for your help,


A:Vista Network Gigabit Bandwidth degradation when audio is on.


i found a solution :
Reports have been flooding the web that the network transfer speed of Windows Vista drops to a low level when the user plays music at the same time. While there does not seem to be a obvious connection between network transfers and sounds being played and everyone would probably consider other possibilities first it seems that a service called MMCSS, the Multimedia Class Scheduler Service.
Mark Russinovich described the technical process in his blog explaining that ?when a multimedia application begins playback, the multimedia APIs it uses call the MMCSS service to boost the priority of the playback thread into the realtime range? which basically means that every other thread - including network transfers - see a performance drop because of this.

The following method has been working for most users who experienced the slowdown in network traffic in Vista while playing music.
Don?t play music while transferring files. This is pretty obvious but probably not the best solution for most users
Remove the MMCSS dependency of Windows Audio in the registry. To do that navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \Services \Audiosrv, right-click the DependOnService string and remove MMCSS from it.

Solution @ Fix for slow Vista Network Transfer while playing Music

The fix involves editing the Registry to turn off Network Throttling. As always create a System Restore Point to backup your Registry, then follow the steps below.
Click the Start Orb and type Regedit in the search box.
Click Regedit.exe at the top of the search results under programs.
if you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
Navigate to the following key

In the right hand pane double click NetworkThrottlingIndex and type in FFFFFFFF (that?s 8 F?s) in the Hexadecimal field.
Click Ok and restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

I have an Asus P8P67 pro mobo with the Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection network adapter built in. It currently is using ver 11 driver.
I found the latest driver (PROWinx64.exe) to update it (I'm having some issues).
When I try to update it, I get an error box that says:

"The installed version of Intel Proset is not supported for upgrades. You must uninstall it before installing this version".

When I go to Device Manager to uninstall the Gigabit Network Connection in order to install this update...Windows re-installs it before I can run the update. Thus I can't update the driver. How do I stop Windows 7 from automatically updating this driver so that I will have time enough to manually update it with the downloaded newer driver?

I'm Running Windows 7 64bit

Any ideas?

A:Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection upgrade issues

Uninstall through Programs and Features in the Control Panel. Uninstalling through the Device Manager is only temporary and does not actually get rid of the driver. Basically, it just disconnects the device from the driver. As you found out it will reinstall itself every time you restart the computer.

My HP Envy 15t-k000 works fine, but is slow. I thought it was my internet until I did a troubleshooting and discovered that the reason I am not getting the superfast speeds I am supposed to be getting is because my computer doesn't have a fast enough network adaptor. Currently it has the Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 it came with. I looked at the service manual and couldn't find an upgrade in it. Is there a module I can replace it with that will allow for the 1G speeds? The part number for the laptop is G0T55AV. Thanks!

A:My HP Envy network adapter doesn't support gigabit speeds. I...

Hi: The adapter you mentioned...Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 is the wireless network adapter, and I do not believe that card will connect any faster than 72 MBPS. Your notebook comes with the Realtek 10/100 ethernet (wired) adapter and it cannot be upgraded because the ethernet chip is part of the motheboard. If you want a gigabit ethernet connection, then I recommend you purchase an external USB to RJ-45 gigabit ethernet adapter. You won't find any wireless card that will go beyond the AC rate of 867 MBPS and you would need an ac router to achieve those speeds. You would also have to take the entire notebook apart to replace the wireless card and if your notebook only has one antenna attached to the atheros wlan card, you won't be able to upgrade to a faster wireless card. A suitable AC card would be the Intel 7260 wireless card if your notebook has two antennas attached to the atheros card.

A:Windows 7: Can't change setting System Properties > network ID setting

Hi Lewis, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The \\DOMAIN_OR_PC_NAME\USERNAME combination is not erroneous, it's how Windows keeps track of users in your network (even if said network only has one Windows PC).

For Windows, when a computer does not belong to a domain, the PC name is used instead of a domain name. I am currently typing this using a laptop with name AGM-W8LAP02 (my own naming policy, my home network is called AGM and this is Windows 8 Laptop number 02). My complete username for this user profile I am currently using on this computer is \\AGM-W8LAP02\Kari. This combination \\DOMAIN_OR_PC_NAME\USERNAME does separate my user profile Kari on this computer from user profile Kari on other computers. User \\AGM-W8LAP02\Kari is not the same user than \\AGM-W7DESK01\Kari.

For Windows it's easier and more logical to use this naming policy even if your PC would be the only one in network. If you now add computers to your network which also contain user profile Lewis, Windows does not have to change the system to be able to separate users not only from other users on the same computer but also from same users on other computers.

A:there are driver orhardware problems with the network adapter "realtek family PCI-E Gigabit ethernet NIC"


I had this problem as well, and found that a Windows update seemed to cause the problem. Fortunately I was able to download the LATEST ethernet driver from Realtek, and this resolved the problem.

You may also try to go to Micro$ost update and do a "custom" Search for updates, if I'm not mistaken there is a Realtek NDIS update there, this may help.

I am assuming that you have a wireless connection. If not, I suggest that you ask a friend to search for your particular driver at realtek, and have him download it for you.

Do you have the Driver CD or DVD for your motherboard? - The ethernet driver will be found on that CD.

You can also try to "update" the driver from the device manager:

Open device manager

RIGHT click on the driver with the "i"

select properties

click on the driver tab

click on the update this driver button (you must have your driver disc loaded into your ROM)

In the next pane, select "browse my computer for driver software"

HOPEFULLY the OS will scan the disc and load the necessary NDIS files from there

If this machine ever belonged to a Domain then it would say that. The problem is that once you are part of a Domain you will be locked out of changing the location settings.

Domain Network: For domain networks in large corporate environments. This type of network is controlled by a network administrator and can?t be changed.

You may be able to change this by going to Winkey + R to open Run prompt and type gpedit.msc

A:Setting up a network

Well, a single CAT5 cable to the lower level would be the best way to solve this issue, then you could use a cheap Ethernet switch to connect the two computers. This will be the most reliable network by far.

You could use a single WAP (Wireless Access Point) on the lower level and connect both the printer and the computer to it on the lower level.

As long as you don't mind leaving the computer on the lower level running anytime you'd like to print, you could also bridge the wired and wireless connections in the computer and connect the printer to the wired Ethernet port of the computer and use that wireless adapter to feed both of them. This is the "cheap" option, as you have already purchased the equipment.

If it were my money, I'd take the USB adapter back and run a cable.

You 'd be better off connecting a wireless router or access point to the desktop through a PCI ethernet adaptor (wired lan card) instead of trying to use a wireless adaptor.

I'm not sure if that card can act as a access point or not. If not, you wouldn't have a SSID for the notebook to connect to.

I've never set up a connection like this before so any help would be greatly appreciated.

At the moment my home network is as follows, we have two PC systems with Wireless Netgear PCI cards fitted, and a Netgear ADSL Router which supplies the connection.

I've now got another system in my room I need tempoary access to along with my main PC. My main PC has an ethernet port on it.

How would I go about getting the connection onto my other PC shared with my main one using my wireless as a source of connection?



A:Setting up a network

Is my understanding, as follows, correct? PC M has a wireless connection to your router, and also has an ethernet port. PC O has an ethernet port but no wireless capabililty and is too far to connect to the router via ethernet.

If all the above is correct you can connect the two PCs via cross-over ethernet cable. You can use a regular cable if either port is auto-sensing, also called MDI/MDIX. On PC M you should then be able to bridge (in Network Connections) the two connections. Or you can try ICS on PC M provided the router is not using the 192.168.0.x subnet.

Of course, getting another wireless adapter would be infinitely easier.

I am trying to get my network set up, but when I try to set up the base station it tells me to disable firewall. Well the one i found is disabled. What do I do? I have the microsoft MN-500 wireless base station. The setup application at the part where it tries to configure the base station is what is telling me to disable the firewall.

A:help setting up network/lan

i just did this 2 days ago.

first thing make sure all your lights are doing the right thing (according to the manual for the router)

the answer that worked for me was call the tech support in the back of the manual they should square you away.

but if that isn't possible, look in the manual there should be an http:// adress to type in for the setup, type it in and setup screen should appear,all i had to do was choose the type of connection (i.e. pppoe ect.) my isp uses select it enableing it then i was good to hook tell me how it goes

I have 4 computers that I would like to be able to network, 3 are Windows 10 and the fourth is a Ubuntu box we use for backup. There is no problem networking to the Ubuntu box from any of the computers. The other 3 computers, listed in order of importance are mine (1), my wife's (2) and the workshop (3).

#3 can access #1 and sees #2 but is unable to get into her files.
#1 can access #3 and sees #2 but is unable to get into her files.
#2 can access #1 and #3 but it asks for a user name and password for both computers.

I have attempted to share her files with everyone, after several minutes up pops "Can't share this folder"!

Any help would be appreciated.


A:Setting up a network

If possible, for the Windows computers, you want to use the same username and password combinations (since these are likely workgroup computers and not on a domain). Are they all connected to the same router?

Are you using a "crossover cable" or a "patch cable" (straight through)?

Direct PC to PC connection needs a cross-over cable.

Hello all,

I need some help trying to setup three computers on a network. Let me explain what I have. Two desktop PCs connected via Ethernet through a router, and one laptop connected to the router via Wireless. My router is a Wireless-G Linksys WRT54G v5. Both of the desktop PCs have Windows XP and the laptop has Windows 98SE. I would like all three computers to be able to share the same internet connection, files and folders, printers, and scanners/printers if possible. I have tried going through Windows XP's "Setup a home or small office network" wizard but it didn't work. All three computers can already access the Internet, but I can't share files/folders/printers/scanners/etc.

I would really appreciate it if someone could walk me through setting up a Network for these three PCs or atleast redirect me to a guide on how-to setup a Network.


A:Help Setting up a Network

Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of Win 2k Pro or XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. On one run, create a disk to run on the Win98SE. Windows XP firewall will be properly configured by the wizard. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... .

When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment. It takes awhile (20 minutes; even hours) before all the computers in the workgroup get up-to-date and accurate lists of the other computers. Often you can speed up this process via Search for other computers, and a few computer restarts.

When computers show up in My Network Places, double click on one to see its shares. If that includes a printer, you can right click on the printer to connect to it.

If something fails, tell us exactly what you were doing at the time and what the result/error message was.

I currently am on a school network that is so small that I can not assign folders to classes or students. With less than 200 students I am sure that one of our computers would handle a network that would allow that if I monitered the amount that was saved in the folders. I want this so that everytime I have an assignment for the students I don't have to print it out, or take their flash drives and copy each one on seperately. Also, they could save their work to the server and I would not have to collect flash drives at the end of each period.
Where would I go to get step by step, simple instructions to set something like this up?

Thank You

A:setting up a network

You should discuss the problem and your suggested solution with the head of your school or the head of the school's IT department. You could easily jeopardize the security of all computers on the school network by adding your own network that can be accessed by your students.

Hi there

If you look around the router you will find an IP address and a default username and password.

Type the ip address into the address bar of the internet explorer and when prompted use the default username and password this should let you access the set up of the router.

I hope this gives you some help

I have three PC's a W7 Pro and two Vista Home Premium.

I have an ADSL modem with both Wireless and Ethernet output, the Ethernet cable is connected to a splitter and two PC's are connected through the splitter, the third is connected by wireless.

Up to now I have only used the modem etc for Internet connection sharing, now I need to Network all three PC's so I can share printing and have full access to files etc.

Can I create another Network without hurting the Internet sharing setup?



A:Setting up a second Network

There is no simple free way. Your best bet is to get a router and connect it to your adsl modem, then connect your 3 machines to the router. This will give shared internet to 3 machines and allow you to network them. Routers can be had for less than 40 USD.

A:Setting up a new network

The easiest network to set up is usually by using a router and connecting both computers to it. But, if you don't have a router and don't plan to get one, what networking equipment do you have (adapters for each PC, switch, hub, etc.)?

I recently got the internet (sprint dsl) installed in my room. My roommate and I are going to split the internet 50/50(two computers) so we got a Linksys WRT54g router. Sprint supplied us with a Zhone 6211 adsl2+ router as well. Everything is hooked up properly.

We have been trying to set up the network with no luck. All connections are good and we have run the startup disk(no luck as well) and been browsing the internet for help all weekend.

Any recommendations? Our computers are very close so there is no actual need to run wireless but if it is easier to setup that is fine.

Please help!

One thing you might take a look at is the subst command. When each user logs on, they can execute a batch file that will give them a U: drive. a command like this will do it.

subst U: d:\user1

you can have directories on the D drive called user1 user2 user3
and when that user logs in, their U drive will really be their own directory
on your D drive.

Is that what your asking?

All right so I've got a broadband connection at Computer #1. Which connects to a wireless router which connects to a wireless usb adaptor at Computer #2. My question is would I be able to run an ethernet cable from Computer #2 to an Xbox 360 to get the Xbox 360 connected? What would I set for WEP key settings and such on the 360? Thanks in advance.

A:Network Help : Setting Up

You might get it working by bridging the two connections on computer 2. Are you using ICS on computer 1, or what?

Why not just connect the modem to the router? If the modem only has USB, get one with ethernet.

If you connect the Xbox 360 via ethernet, just disable the wireless adapter.

A:setting up a network

First, are both in the same workgroup? To check to to Start>Control Panel>System>Computer Name and look under Workgroup. This should be the same. If not hit Change and make them the same.

Second, go to the Shared Documents folder, right click on it and hit properties. Select sharing. Varify that the folder is being shared. If not enable file sharing but do not run the wizard and select just to enable file sharing. This should fix the problem.

The main thing to do is make sure both computers have an Ethernet NIC and make sure your broadband provider has given you a modem with an Ethernet port (not USB). If both are true than all you need is the router and 2 patch cables (any length) if either of your PC's are missing an Ethernet port you will have to buy an ethernet NIC as well.Click to expand...

I'm in the same situation only i've been given a modem that has a USB port not Ethernet. Could anyone explain what happens in this situation and what would be needed in order to set this up.
