    I recently got a Cisco/Linksys e3200 router and have two desktop computers hard wired to it. One is Windows 7 Professional and the other is Linux Mint 12. The problem, however is with my laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium.

    The router setup was extremely simple and I get decent file transfer speeds between the desktops and between the Linux machine (wired) and the Windows 7 HP laptop (wireless). The problem is between the two Windows 7 machines, and is far worse in one direction. I got reasonable speeds when I copy from the laptop to the Windows 7 desktop (initiating file transfer from the desktop), but I am basically unable to initiate file transfers from the laptop. I can see both desktops on the network, and can see shared folders, though discovery of them can take a really long time. The real problem is when I attempt to copy a file from the Windows 7 desktop to the laptop. It will say it is discovering the files to be transferred for several minutes (even if it is only one mp3), then, if the transfer does start, it will move along at 10-15k/second.

    I've googled the issue and haven't been able to find an answer. It's extremely frustrating. Let me know if there is any more information that you need and I will try to provide it. Thank you in advance for your help.

    I should add that the internet connection speed of the laptop, connected wirelessly, is fine.
