    Hi All,

    I have a strange problem with my 54mbit wireless connection in my laptop.

    example :

    1. I have two 3 Gig files that I want to copy to another PC, if I drag and drop both the files together the copy is really slow (300 minutes to complete)

    2. However if I drag and drop one of the files and as this is copying I drag the other file at the same time so I have two copying at the same time the files copy in approx 30mins !!

    If I look at Windows Task Manager / Networking in the first instance when both files are copied together I get approx 9% network utilisation, but in instance 2 where I have to copies going at the same time the network utilisation jumps to appros 40%.

    Any idea why when I have 1 drag & drop copy session it is very slow but with two the copy are fast ?...

    That's a bit odd, can't say exactly why you see that. :)
