I am having a problem with speed copying from Windows XP Pro to Slackware 9.1 Linux. I have several systems in the house, most of which are running Windows XP Pro. When I try and copy files from windows to linux I am getting around 1.1MB per second. If I copy from Windows to Windows I get around 8 to 10MB per second. Also if I copy from Linux to Windows I get 8 to 10MB per second. Which seems very odd. It does not matter which system I use, it is the same for all. Some info to help out, so you know what I am running all this on:

-Main System-

Windows XP Pro, SP1 (Updated as of 01/22/2004)
Asus A7N8X Deluxe (Bios 1007)(nforce 3.13)
AMD 2500+ 333mhz
1024MB 2700 DDR RAM
ATI AiW 9700 Pro (Catalyst 4.1)
40GB WD 8mb cache
80GB WD 8mb cache
400W TopPower PSU
Lite-On 52x24x52x CDRW
LG 24x10x40x CDRW
*Using the nforce onboard network card
*the other two desktops, and two laptops are similar in configuration.

-Linux Box-

Slackware 9.1 (updated as 01/22/2004)
Samba 3.0.1
Dual PIII 733
Atlas 10KRPM 18GB SCSI
WD 30GB 5200RPM
ATI Radeon 9200 SE w/128MB
Samsung DVD
*using onboard Intel network card


10/100 Full duplex, systems are connected via two linksys switches, Linux & main pc are on one switch, then that switch connects to the second one which has two pc's, and a linksys WAP connected. I have checked, and all systems report that they have autodetected full duplex.


bind interfaces only = true
interfaces = eth1
netbios name = LINUXBOX
server string = ""
workgroup = NET
security = share
loglevel = 1
log file = /var/log/samba/samba.log
max log size = 1000

path = /storage
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes

path = /var/www
guest ok = yes
writeable = yes
create mode = 0666
directory mask = 0777

I have read a lot about things to help speed up samba (all the smb.conf options) none of which have helped. any information would be nice be very helpful.

Newbe to Newbe, maybe!! huh.gif

Just for the record! have you installed the latest NVIDIA drivers for your onboard network card and other motherboard prefericals to work as they should?

Iḿ running RH9 on a MSI Mboard and couldnt even get networking going on the nvnet onboard NIC untill I installed the driver pack!

If your connectiong both PCs with crossover cable (direct one to one) or 10/100 switch you can get 100mb transfer, but count on max of 10mb if your using a hub.

Good luck

It sounds to me like there is a potential problem with your network card driver ....

I only get around 3-4 mb / sec on one of my linux machines and 12-15 mb/sec on the same machine in windows as well ... but I never really tried to solve the problem.

Intel has a optimized driver for the e100 here
