Silly question - data transfer speed

  reddwarfcrew 22:43 17 Sep 2006

Hi, I'm trying to measure the real speed of transfering data between 2 wireless PCs connected with a wireless router.

I transferred a file that was 245813KB (240MB, 251715584b) in size and it trasnferred in 5mins 14 secs.

I get this to be 6Mb a second... is my maths rights as this is way off the wireless speed reported on my setup of 24Mbps (when it is at its slowest).

My guess is you cannot measure like that, As I would say text will go down the line faster than graphics at the same size. Try it as experiment
