Description

Hi,

I thought I would log this as the issue doesn't seem to be being addressed on the forum. Myself and other users are all experiencing the same issue whereby both internet speed and network transfer speed are severely limited through the LAN connection.

If I do and internet speed test through my Boxee box (connected to my router via LAN) I only get around 7mps, yet if do the very same test on my laptop hooked up to the same the same LAN cable I am getting 14mps (which is my broadband connection speed)

This issue also effects data transfer between my main PC and the Boxee Box. If I drag a file onto a USB plugged into the Boxee Box I only get a transfer rate of again around 7mps. Yet if I hook up my laptop to the very same LAN cable it hits 70-80mps.

I believe the fact that both the internet speed test and the file transfer, both using the LAN connection are topping out at around 7mps shows there is either a hard issue with the LAN controller on the Boxee box or the issue is software related.

Like I said, it's not just me, see this forum posting

Please clarify where you think the fault lies.

This also may have a negative impact on Netflix/Vudu/Hulu+ (if they ever come out), especially for HD streaming.

I have the same problem here, hope to see some improvement. I originally format tue external USB as HSF+, but a bug prevent me to write to it after reboot, I chose NTSF, but the speed is too low, especially annoying for large files...

You closed this because you said it was a duplicate of

http://jira.boxee.tv/browse/BOXEE-6967

Yet you have closed that as fixed within SP3

It isnt fixed, file transfer is still very slow. Please reopen
