My laptop alone is capable of Gigabit Ethernet. My desktop has obsolete hardware which limits the file transfer speed. Option 3 seems perfect but it is more expensive. So long as you have reasonable expectations, you might achieve satisfactory results, but don’t expect it to offer high performance. Unfortunately, this is an older chipset, so it is 11n only and not 11ac. And i will use cross-over Gigabit connection between PC and Laptop which also eliminates the need to get separate Gigabit Switch. I would still recommend a dual band USB wireless adapter rather then the single band one.

The wireless speed is labelled as Mbps and it is not having any antenna. Sign up using Email and Password.
If you get good speeds from both those tests, then you need to look at replacing hardware. User 2 3. And i will use cross-over Gigabit connection between PC and Laptop which also eliminates the need to get separate Gigabit Switch. If you are only concerned about the two devices and are okay with the crossover cable, then it sounds like you have a solution.
My laptop alone is capable of Gigabit Ethernet.
Thank you for the clarification. However, the problem you indicate can be caused by a large number of problems and choosing the right “fix” requires that you correctly identify the part or parts that are creating the problem.
If you unplug the laptop from the switch you can still use wifi if you just feel like roaming with the laptop.
Unfortunately, this is an older chipset, so it is 11n only and not 11ac. If you really meant MBps, then yes, the BaseT connection is the bottleneck 96 Mbps is about the best you will get from most Mbps links.
But how great the transfer speeds will be? So long as you have reasonable expectations, you might achieve satisfactory results, engemius don’t expect it to offer high performance.

The Pi version 2 has higher USB current available, so it should work without a powered hub. YLearn 1, 6 Not all are created equal – you often get what you pay for. Option 1 is cheap solution. Now I got a better option. You provide details framing the problem and options to fix. You should be able to do significantly more than Mbps, so if not then look for the engeniks on one of the computers.

Very first thing, make sure there are no firmware updates for your DSL device. And it has Mbps Ethernet ports. Now, I wish I could have fast file transfers between the PC and laptop. My vote is option 2. As I need faster file transfers, I have the following options. Wireles is a shared medium per radio, so with the dual band adapter your desktop an be working in 5GHz and your laptop in 2. So a cross over cable presently only gave me 12MBPS.
You can plug the laptop, pc and router into the switch and have fast file transfers.
From there, I would look at a new “dual band” router with Gig network ports. This site has a list of sources:
