ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock and X1 Carbon SLOW wired network speeds

Question: ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock and X1 Carbon SLOW wired network speeds

Got my X1 carbon, like it don't love it. However using it on our wired network I'm getting around 20MB speeds copying files and my carbon becomes very copy when doing large 2GB file type copies. On my T420s with a "real" docking station I get around 150MB speeds copying the same file. No errors on our Cisco switches, seem speeds are locking in fine. Is that simply the best I'm going to to over the USB 3.0 connecting to the SS port? I can almost live with slow speeds but copy video during copies, no way. Am I missing something, doing something wrong, or this is what it is? Sure hope not...

Answer: ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock and X1 Carbon SLOW wired network speeds

Having the exact same problem. Files that transfer instantly on other computer take upwards of 40-60 seconds on the X1 through the USB 3.0 dock. We are using the most recent dock drivers as well as the most recent usb 3.0 drivers, so not sure what could be causing this problem. Thanks

ok folks.......i am begging someone on here to help me - on the verge of going back to windows 7. Tried everything.
help me. please.

i have an x99 chipset pc, i7 5820k, 16gb ram, gtx nvidia 970 - its a good pc (meant to be anyway............).
it's connected directly to my router, as are a few other pc's in the house including a laptop - all via lan cable, as is my NAS drive.

a few weeks ago i noticed file transfer speeds had dropped, really slow. I've tried all sorts, including 2 fresh formats trying a combination of things. Different slots on the router, different cables, the whole 'large send offload' disabled thing, everything.
None of it works.
I've been doing side by side tests, vs my Asus laptop (also on windows 10, and the last thing i'd expect in the house to work properly) - transferring the same file, from the same location on my NAS, to a local drive (ssd drives both on laptop and on pc).
With the laptop i get average transfer speeds of this 9gb file of 50-70 mb/s, every time, consistently, No problem at all.
With the PC, one time it will start at 55-60 and slow right down. Other times it'll start at 30 and again slow down.
Or it'll stay at 30.
More often than not, it starts at 30-40 then will slow to 15-20.
On the laptop its a consistent 55-65 and stays there for the entire file.

What the hell is wrong with my pc?

Answer:File transfer speeds over LAN network (wired) - very slow, random

Checked Netbios is enabled , not on Default ? (on all PC's on Win 10 , it seems to be an issue for some)

Also if Jumbo Frame is Enabled and your Router or the other PC can't use it , it will cause issues like this . EVERY DEVICE on the LAN MUST Support JumboFrame if you use it. ie my C7 ARCHER can't.... everything else can....

If that doesn't help , this is my goto list I posted in another Thread for them to check too.

Hello fellow users / Lenovo, In our office we have several X1 Carbons and several ThinkPad USB 3.0 Docks (0A33970) located all over the office. We typically bring our X1 Carbons around and use each other's Dock during the course of work. However, we recently face a problem with the Ethernet interface not working with other Docks, other than the Dock that the driver was installed with. Using other Docks, the Ethernet interface comes up as a generic Ethernet device with a yellow warning triangle inside Control Panel. Using the Dock that the driver was installed with, the Ethernet device works as normal. It should be pretty easy to replicate this behaviour, just get an X1 Carbon (fresh, Windows 8.1) and connect a USB 3.0 Dock to it, and install appropriate drivers.Verify that the Ethernet port works correctly. Next, disconnect the Dock and connect another Dock to the X1 Carbon. Observe that the Ethernet interface does not work, and see the yellow warning triangle icon under Control Panel. Uninstalling and Reinstalling the drivers with the new Dock doesn't work either. Only the Dock that the driver was originally installed with will work.

Hello - I have a X1 Carbon with the ThinkPad USB 3.0 dock.  Everything worked great under Windows 8.1.  I would occassionally have an issue with the dock not coming online after resuming Win 8.1, but it was easy to fix by powering the dock on/off or rebooting. However since upgrading to Win 10, I have a very frustrating audio issue.  Application seem to have trouble picking between the sound device inside the laptop and the dock.  For example, I'll get an incoming call from Skype, and it will start the call on the laptop internal speakers, then say the "Realtek audio device is unavailable".  If I call the person back, it then completes the call and works fine through the dock audio device (which is what it should have done the first time). However the issue isn't only with Skype, it's with all apps.  For example, if I start Pandora in the Chrome browser, it will start playing the audio through the laptop speakers for about 1 second, then stop.  I then have to refresh the web page a few times to get it to start playing out of the dock sound device.  All the while, Windows is configured (and properly reports) the dock sound device as the default (which is what I want). I suspect this is an issue with the drivers for either the dock or the X1 not properly talking to Windows 10, but both are up to date, and either Lenovo or DisplayLink (who makes the dock drivers) have any noted issues with audio-switching. Has anyo...

I am surprised (my problem - I didn't pick up on that factoid earlier) to read that the dongle supplied by Lenovo is only at 10/100 mbs speed. My question is: Is there a fundamental limit to the wired speed on the X1C , and so a GigE dongle is useless, or would a non Lenovo supplied dongle work on an X1C at gige speeds? If there is one which will work at GigE speeds, I am interested in finding out which one works best?PXE booting is a nice to have (ican test it) but not a need to have. Performance is more important. Thanks.

Hello and welcome,
 
Just a WAG:  your firewall is treating wired and wireless connections differently.  I've run into that a few times.
 
Can you temporarily disable your firewall as a test?  If that lets you see your disk station, there may be firewall rules that you can adjust.
 
As I said, just a WAG.

I downloaded a trial version of an MMO, or attempted to I should say, thats when i really noticed a problem. The very first second upon downloading it was up at a fairly good pace 300KB/s -- im cool with that, but hten it dropped down to 10kb then 5kb quckly after then to staying in the bytes, then eventually after maybe 5 minutes giving up.

I should mention i'm def not a novice, but i'm not a super advanced user. I did tech support for hp and comcast for 6 years.
OK so now i can't surf in IE worth a crap because everytime i open up to download something it gets instantly chopped down to nothing.

Just got my brand new X1 Carbon (4gen 2016/20FB) with the 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD (THNSN5512GPU7). Was expecting a blazing fast disk, but it felt sluggish something that AS SSD Benchmark confirms (see attachment). According to the specs this drive should offer up to 2400 Mb/s read and 1500 Mb/s write. But I get 1800 MB/s read and abysmal 113 MB/s write. The machine has all the latest updates from Lenovo (incl BIOS) and all the drivers for Windows 10. Anyone else tested their drives? Found a Dell XPS owner with the same drive that complained about the same issue. Turning off windows write cache buffer flushing does help, but that is not a good answer.

Good afternoon.  First post... please be kind.  :-) I have a T400 that I am docking on an Advanced Mini Dock (250410U).  Up until about 4 weeks ago, the Ethernet connection on the dock worked wonderfully.  Then one day, it just stopped... now, no Ethernet, only WiFi (through the laptop itself).  I have tested the jack/port on the wall.. it works fine... the Ethernet cable works fine... and the same jack/port and the same Ethernet cable, when plugged directly into my T400, work fine. I have no idea why my dock is no longer allowing wired network connections.  Anybody having this issue or aware of any fixes?  Two events coincide with this occurring but I don't believe have any impact... one was I upgraded to Windows 7, from Windows XP... but I had wired connection on 7 for at least two weeks before this occurred... and the other was I moved desks at work, but this issue popped up prior to the move. ANY help would be much appreciated!!

Answer:T400 - No Ethernet (wired network) when docked on Advanced Mini Dock (250410U)

Have you opened the machine recently? There is a cable that runs from near the fan connector (by the ethernet port) past the memory and turns toward the middle of the machine. It goes to a flat connector on the motherboard under the wireless card. If that cable is disconnected, it will yield your symptoms.

Network do not found when starting the laptop which is docked.You need to unplug network cable from docking station and put back...that normally helps.Without docking station the networks works well.Also sometimes keyboard and mouse stops working (those are connected to docking station.

Answer:T450S in Lenovo ThinkPad Ultra Dock, network missing at startup

I have a very similar Problem with some T440s and Ultra Dock.Although replugging the cable to the Dockingstation doens't work for me. The Notebook is running Windows 7 64 Bit Enterprise and is ( or should be ) plugged to a 1 gb LAN with Cisco Switches. Using the Networkinterface on the T440s works fine until i use the Dockingstation. The Problem seems to be the auto negotiation between the Dock and the Switchport. When autonegotiation is disabled in Windows ( setting to 1gb/s fullduplex didn't work though) and setting the Adapter to 100mb/s fullduplex, the connection is stable.  With autonegotiation activated Windows tells me there is no Ethernet Cable attached, so there is or seems to be no physical link.

Hi, We just deployed a brand new X201 Thinkpad to an enduser.  When connected to the docking station (X200 Ultrabase) and we push power, it takes a good 2 minutes for Windows to begin to load.  The Lenovo splash screen will come up immediately, but then goes blank for 2 minutes, then the Windows is starting logo will finally display.  When not plugged into the docking station, Windows starts up fine.  The problem only happens when plugged into the docking station.  Anyone have any idea how to speed this up?  Thanks.

You can use MSconfig to diagnose startup issues. Visit the following link for details;

You can post back with any questions regarding your system services and startup entries to establish their purpose and whether or not they are required at startup.

Taskbar icons are just shortcuts and do not effect the time it takes for starting a computer.

Hey everyone,
So, recently built a new gaming PC, with (unfortunately) windows 8.1.
I have been experiencing painfully slow internet with both wired and wireless connections.
Have updated drivers, changed adapter settings, on my wireless card (ASUS PCE-N53 Wireless-N PCI Express Adapter)
the speed on www.speedtest.net can jump from around 0.60Mbps to a maximum to to about 1.70Mbps
other computers on the network get a consistent speed around 6Mbps.
Any help would be so very very much appreciated, as i am on the brink of a complete meltdown.

Answer:Slow Wired & Wireless PC, only slow computer on the network - Windows 8.1

Try changing the the channel on your router you may be getting co-channel interference, if that fails get your service provider to check it out. I'm with Virgin mine went all over the place speed wise,turned out to be a dodgy cable now get 54-55 Mbps consistently pay for up to 50 Mbps.

I have two PCs connected using a Trendnet Gigabit Switch (TEG-S5G). DHCP is handled by a router, but that should not impact the file transfer between the computers.

Primary computer has a onboard gigabit NIC and computer2 has a PCI gigabit nic, however, I cant seem to get file transfers over 20-25MB/sec. Files are being transferred between Samsung 1TB HD103SJ drives.

One computer is connected using a cat6 cable from monoprice and the other is through a cat5e cable, both less than 15ft.

Any idea on how I can get a little bit more network utilization?
 

Answer:Slow speeds in network

What models are the NICs and are you using the latest versions of the drivers for your NICs. One of the things I have found is that the drivers included for most NICs with windows are usually good enough to get you on the internet, but preform poorly for file transfer or other high I/O operations. I would also recommend going into your disk properties in device manager (as I see you have Win 7) and making sure that Write Caching is enabled, and Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing is also checked. This will help with disk performance and may also help to get the speed back in your network transfers.

I just set up a new home network using a Linksys EA4500 (N900) router. I've got my desktop computer hardwired using a Cat5e cable and a Realtek RTL8168E NIC (Gigabit). The laptop I've been speedtesting with is running WiFi with a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller (PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_063E1028&REV_07) which I think is an N300, but I can't seem to find anything to support this. When I transfer files between the two machines, I'm only getting about 12 MBs (96 Mbs). Assuming the laptop card is an N300, it's obviously going to bottleneck there, but I should still be getting up to 37.5 MBs (300 Mbs). I get that that's a best case scenario speed, but 12 MBs is pretty far off the mark. I guess my first question is, can anybody find anything about the Laptop NIC? And also, if it is N300, any idea why the file transfers are so slow? While testing I didn't have anything else connected to the network except for a Canon laser printer.

I'm using a hub and have 2 different computers hooked up to it, mine being the server. I don't know what kind of network you would classify it as but I'm using it to ftp files to different computers, hope this makes since. But anyway, whenever I hook the cable directly computer to computer I get transfer speeds of about 9-10mb but whenever I run it through the hub I don't get anything over 1mb. Anyone have any idea why the hub would be slowing things down?

Thanks,
Trigg
 

Answer:Slow Network Speeds

Replace it with a 10/100 switch or if you are on broadband, a router with built-in 10/100 switch.

Hubs let through selective traffic from one user at a time, whereas switches let through all traffic simultaneously.

It also sounds as if you have some slow 10MB NICs. Replace these with 10/100 NICs

Hi guys,
I have three computers on my home network:
(a) desktop in the office with ASUS USB-N53 adapter
(b) new desktop in the office with fairly old Broadcom PCI 802.11g adapter
(c) media box hooked up to TV hard wired to router

I recently mapped a drive on system A so that it could be shared with system B (they are side by side). Unfortunately, upon trying to transfer files the speeds are terrible! I am only getting between 500kb/s and 1mb/s.
Is this due to my relatively old wireless G adapter?

thanks :S

Answer:Slow Transfer Speeds over Network

It could be. You really need to use on both desktops wired connections. If you are going to use Wifi and transfer large files. You may want to invest into a Wireless-ac router and same for the adapters for the computers.

Wireless transfers only go as fast as the slowest connection.

Hey everyone. Computer is an X1 Carbon Gen4 with Win10 Pro. No recent modem/router changes. No software changes. No updates available through TVSU (at least that's what it says.. I use to have updates available every couple of days and it's said there were no packages available for my system for almost a month now)/Lenovo website. Windows updates current. All drivers should be current. For some reason, only on this laptop, I'm getting around 50Mbps down instead of my normal 230Mbps down. Just started within the past couple days. It's not location related, I've eliminated that possibility. I powercycled the modem and router. I did a factory reset on the router. I tried using Google's DNS (I had to do that on my MBP to get the correct speeds out of it on the 5Ghz network) and it didn't change. My upload speeds are normal at 20-23Mbps. Any idea? My iPhone and MacbookPro are getting correct speeds.

I'm maxing out at about 1-1.5mb/s. This seems way to low. I'm using Filezilla. I'm a newb to FTP... so i'm not sure what may be causing the issue. Anyone able to offer help?
EDIT: Watching it closer, the speed seems to degrade over time. If i'm doing a small file, I can transfer about 8mb/s. Trying to transfer a 7GB file, it started off fast, but by the time it finished I was barely getting 1mb/s. This normal?
 

Answer:Slow FTP speeds on local network... can anyone help?

If your network connection, processor, or most likely hard disk is being constantly accessed while a transfer is happening then the speed degrades or never hits the maximum.

Here is my setup:

2-Desktop PCs
2-Qualcomm Atheros AR938x wireless cards, both connected on 5Ghz network at 450 Mbps
Router-E4200, latest firmware, the only 5Ghz network in the area

One PC has a drive bender drive pool on it that I'm trying to read/write from. Testing the pool w/ crystal disk mark on the local pc shows fast speeds (650 MB/s read, 67 MB/s write), so I drive bottlenecks aren't the issue.

Connecting at 450 Mbps i would expect to see something like at least 200 Mbps actual speeds, or is this off? Using LAN Speed test I'm getting 41 write and 52 read. Not great. Any ideas here whats going on? Thanks!
 

Answer:Slow network transfer speeds

200Mbps if you are lucky, or shall I say "theoretically". There is so much more than just the contention aspect, which is a straight 50% off any advertised speed they tell you.
The problem isn't the PC's, Router, or the Wireless cards. They are working exactly as expected. The problem my friend is, the Wireless. Those speeds are not completely unreasonable given the circumstances. If you're going to want more you're either going to have to invest in bleeding edge 802.11ac equipment or hardwire.

Hi

I am transferring some files over my network using the Python SimpleHTTPServer on a Xubuntu box.

Code:

Code:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
The server is a mediocre, 4-5 year old machine AKA David. I don't have the exact specs to hand but it was bargain bucket in 2009

The client is a big powerful monster of a machine. Big games rig. AKA Goliath.

The router has a theoretical transfer speed of 300Mb/s. It's a TP-Link TL-WR841N.

My actual non-concurrent download speed is ~ 4Mb/s.

This isn't really my area and I was wondering if anyone can explain why this is? All connections are via Ethernet cable. David is connected via Ethernet. Goliath is connected via Ethernet to a Powerline Adapter which in turn is Ethernet connected. Over wireless, I am getting ~1.5Mb/s.

I'm not expecting the full theoretical maximum but surely better than 4Mb/s? Is there anyway to improve this? Why am I getting such a slow connection? I'm interested in the academic side of things here as well as the technical solution (if any)

My theory is that my rubbish-y old network card is throttling. Possible?

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: Slow-ish transfer speeds over network

Several things here. First, the NIC(s) used can affect the speed, even the driver version can have an affect. Second, how each NIC is connected and configured (ie: 10half, 10Full, 100half, 100Full, etc.).

Verify the configuration end to end. Also, the router itself, and in this configuration, the powerline adapter can/are likely further reducing the speed.

Try moving everything to the same room and test. ie: David > short ethernet > router > short ethernet > Goliath

That will give you the best possible results with your current hardware (assuming there aren't any configuration issues).

So for the last few days my main work pc has dropped from 80mb/s to under 2mb/s.
The ping is still very low (10-50ms) and the problem persists whether wireless or cabled. (separate adapters - Pci ethernet card / usb wireless)
I have done thorough malware/virus checks and nothing flagged.
All other devices on the network are still getting 30-60mb/s through wireless so I'm making an educated guess that it's a local issue that I'm missing.
When diagnostics are run, network adapters show "media disconnected" but in device manager everything is enabled and up to date, and internet is still running, although painfully slow.

I have a QNAP connected with dual gigabit and the transfer speeds leave more to be desired. I've done a little troubleshooting but I'm not sure where else to go. I'll try to lay the info out as cleanly as possible.

Modem/Router - Connects to my Asus RT56u router (Cat5e)

Gigabit switch - Devices: Qnap (2 x Cat6). Also connected to Asus router with Cat5e cable

PC: Connected to Asus Router via 5ghz

Random facts:
-My PC is literally right above the router on the next floor. Speeds are ~12-18mb/s @ 5ghz. ~5mb/s @ 2.4ghz
-Originally router wasn't direct under PC, it was 10 feet away ~4mb/s
-Connecting my computer to the router with a Cat5e cable - 11mb/s
-Connecting qnap directly to PC lan port with cat6 cable - 42mb/s

What I know:
-This is a network issue because when it's hooked up directly to PC speeds double/quadruple.
- 5ghz appears to be faster than Cat5e -- To me this seems opposite
- Originally the router wasn't far away but the speeds drastically changed when I moved it a little closer.

Hello everyone,
I have 3 or 4 devices connected via a wireless connection, 2 of which are in the same room. Roughly a week ago, my desktop (Vista OS) started to suffer from severely reduced download speeds (5-30kb/s), while my laptop (also Vista OS) which is on the same wireless network continues to run at normal speeds (500kb/s-1mb/s).

I have tried a system restore, scanning for viruses, updating/disabling antivirus and firewalls, connecting directly to LAN, changed wireless interface speed from g to b to mixed, changed wireless channels from 1-6-11, nothing seems to work.

I have a Thomson TG782T router with a D-Link wireless card (which is rather old). I will be happy to post system specs if it helps diagnose this problem.

Please feel free to move this if it should be in the hardware section, I'm thinking it may be a hardware issue.

Thanks in advance.

So when transferring files from one pc to another using copy and paste, why does it only say 2-3 maybe 5-6 or so..

I’m using windows vista, but it’s the same in XP when I was using it. I share a folder on network, browse to this shared folder using another PC on the network (same workgroup) and i copy and paste say a 600mb file. The transfer speed reports (in vista. xp don’t have this feature) that its around 3mb/s or so, whatever it says, it’s not "what it should be" regardless if its 100mbit(10MB/S) or gbit(100MB/s) network.

Now on the advanced config of the network adapter there are various settings that control the network adapter. Does one of these determine the overall speed or the transfer? Maybe a firewall or router is slowing the transfer; therefore a port should be opened? is so what port? Or are speeds slow due to windows..but where can I find information about such a bug, i mean iv looked and looked.

maybe I’m just not googleing the right thing

so anyway if someone knows anything that could help me speed up the transfer of data between two pc's on a windows network, It would be a great help.

Win XP Pro SP2
Hey everyone. I have an issue that's driving me nuts. All of a sudden my internet download speed seems to have dropped. But, when viewing my connection or doing online speed tests, the speeds are actually great. I cannot stream video most of the time and images take longer than ever before to load. Web pages sometimes load fast and other times they will hang for a little while before downloading. If I try to download a file, my download box pops up but takes at least a minute or two to begin showing progress. Its as if im behind a proxy or something. The real kicker is that when im in safe mode with networking my speeds are great. My actually system is working as smooth as ever. Any suggestions here?

I am trying to transer a bunch of backed up files between to computers. Both are on XP pro now (though it was slow with both win2k and only 1 win2k). One is connected over wireless (linksys srx @54 mbps 100% connection), the other is directly hooked into the router. The router is the gateway for dhcp from my modem. The router is a netgear wgr614v5 (runs at 54mpbs obviously limiting my 100mpbs adaptor).
Anyways, my transfer speeds are terrible. The lan computer (which is only a 1.3 cpu, 512ram) shows only around a 12% network usage in task manager, the wireless computer only shows 12-25% network usage in task manager (this one is a 3.2 cpu 1gig ram). I doubt the speed of the slow computer is the problem because using DU meter on the uploading machine (the 3.2) its only uploading at a little over 1 mb/sec. Ever since I got these computers hooked up they have transfered slow, even when I was using a netgear rangemax adaptor for the wireless (instead of the srx). Oh and it doesnt matter which way I am transfering, it ends up the same.
Does anyone have any ideas?

I've googled and feel like I've tried every fix that people post on this, and nothing has seemed to work.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (though it seems to happen with all other versions of 7, wife's home premium has the same problem). I have a NAS connected to my router with gigabit. File transfers max out at 2MB/s, and keep at that speed pretty steadily. My computers are both wired-gigabit and wireless-N (for testing purposes--file transfer speed is independent of wired or wireless). I can devices to my android phone or tablet over wifi from my NAS, and I can get speeds of at least 8MB/s, so it's not like the network or NAS is incapable of transferring files faster. It'd definitely a windows thing, not a network hardware problem.

I have tried in NIC settings:
-Turning on/off jumbo frames
-Turning on/off large file offload for IPv4/6
-Disabling IPv6
-Setting different MTU's (on router too, in case there's a MTU value mismatch between the router, NAS, and computer--I'm unable to change the MTU value on my NAS).

In the OS:
-Turning off/on network autotuning

Those are the fixes people list in situations very similar to mine, but it doesn't seem like they have any impact on my speeds. I've even tried two different ethernet cards (in addition to wifi), to no effect.

If you do a transfer Win 7 to Win 7 machine, is it still slow?

Is the NAS sharing using SMB, SMB2 or CIFS?

Hi
My PC's network card is configured as 100 Mbps
My NAS Drive is configured as 100 Mbps

My Home Hub 3 shows both connected at 100 Mbps, yet I'm getting a maximum of 1.3M transferring a file to the NAS.

Is there any way I can increase this ?
I get the same speed from my 20Mbps download from my DSL.

Answer:Slow Network Transfer Speeds on Local LAN

Your hub is probably whats causing the problem. Hubs are only able to run in 1/2 duplex mode so your speed is only 50 mbps.

100 Mbps (Mega bits per second) connection maximum theoretical speed is 12.5 MBps (Mega Bytes per sec)

A hub that runs in 1/2 duplex mode runs at 50 Mbps = 6.25 MBps

This is theoretical maximum speeds.

To increase you speeds i would suggest replacing your hub with a switch. If you want to increase it more add gigabit hardware to all your machines. That will give you a maximum of 125 MBps. On my Gigabit network I normally see network transfer speeds around 70-100 MBps.

I hope this helps.

Alright just did a fresh insall of WinXP on a AMD Duron box I just got. The only problem is the network speeds are TERRIBLE. This is the only comp on my network with this problem. The card its using is a D-Link DFE-538TX. I am trying to copy Open Office 2.0 installer from this computer to the problamatic one and its saying 40 mins and it says 93mins for some pics. Thats crazy if anyone has some advice please tell me
 

Answer:One comp on network has very slow transfer speeds

check the speed and duplex settings. Make sure the switch is set to the same thing as the PC; if they are both set to auto, try hard-setting them both to 100/full. If that fails, try a different network cable or a different port in your switch.

It takes between 45-60 seconds from the time the desktop is shown, untill the network identification is done. This is both after normal reboot, or resume from standby. After that, everything works fine. For me, that is just a long time to wait, and i wonder if someone else have the same problem? I tried disabling ipv6 and the option to power down the card when in sleep mode.

My network card is in my system specs, and i use the only driver for Win7 64bit for this card.

Thanks in advance

So, I know that at one point in the past my Home Network File Transfer Speeds use to be better than what I'm getting at the moment.

I'm by no means Network Savvy, so please bare with me. I know enough just to get into trouble.

Question 1
From what I've been told your Home Network Speeds can be put to a screeching halt if you have a device that is particularly slower than most of your other devices (ie. a 802.11b device where most of the devices on your network are /g or /n. or a 10/100 device where most others are 10/100/1000) Is this true?

My Setup:
I have 2 fairly new Toshiba Satellite Laptops (802.11n) that are almost always connected via WiFi and not LAN.
I have 1 D-Link DIR 865L AC Router centrally located in my home for the best reach of signals.
I have 1 WD My Book Live 2TB NAS connected directly to my Router via Ethernet.
I have 1 Samsung Series 6 Smart TV
I have 1 D-Link Baby Monitor connected via WiFi (802.11b I "THINK")
I have 1 iPad Mini, 1 iPhone 6, and 1 Samsung Galaxy S5 that are all also connected.
All my Ethernet Cable is Cat 5e, hard to find 6 where I live.
My Router Channel is manually set to 11 (best possible) due to conflicting Home Networks around my area.
Router Mode is set to Mixed Mode (a, b, g, n) All of my devices except our 2 phones fall into this category.
Both of my Computers are joined in a Home Group.

Okay, further investigating led me to set my adapters in both PCs as AdHoc N mode, as well as going into the router and changing it from 20/40MHz to 20MHz. None of this has helped. I am being limited to right at 10Mbps. Disk usage is 0-1%, CPU sits at 14%...

Right.

I have no idea why this is occurring. I have full wi-fi signal and I have a fast broadband connection.

Every now and again the connection speed to just one PC drops to a point where there is almost no activity. I get various "connection timed out" and "DNS lookup failed" errors, then after about 10 minutes of frustration everything works again.

I know this problem is isolated to just this one PC as I have done Internet speed tests from another computer.

I have tried using different wireless cards, resetting the router, changing DNS servers. Nothing has worked.
Help?

I have a simple home network running several machines with Windows 7.

My "server" is running W7 Pro x32. This machine is connected via wired internet directly to my wireless router. When I run a java speed-test web app, I am seeing speeds between 1 and 4 Mb/sec. (My connection is ~20Mb).

I have a W7 Pro x32 laptop connected via wireless. This laptop gets 17Mb/sec speeds.

When I connect the laptop via a wire to the router, it's still upwards of 15Mb/sec.

This was not always the case with this hardware.

I'm running the internal 3G card on the Vodafone network in Australia (ThinkPad x200s, Vista) and a couple of weeks ago it slowed right down to less than dialup speed for no reason, and the speed hasn't picked up since. I finally figured out how to resolve the issue today. I downloaded the Vodafone Internet Connect utlility and now my Internet speeds are restored to 3G speed. However, if I use ThinkVantage Access Connections utility to connect to the Vodafone HSDPA network, the 3G speed crawls again. It appears this is a bug in Acess Connections utility and I'm not sure why it appeared (probably related to a Vista update).  Anyway, if you come across this issue, you should download and connect using the Vodafone Internet Connection utility, which contains many handy features including a usage meter and SMS features.

I set up a network folder on one of my computers and I use another computer on the network to manage the files on it. It all works fine until I try to copy a file or folder from one location on the network drive to another location on the same network drive. Instead of copying the file locally, the network computer sends the file to my remote computer, which sends it back to the same network computer. This means it takes ages to copy large files because they go over the network completely unnecessarily. Is there a way to fix this issue? Can I tell Windows not to transfer files across the network when it's unnecessary? Thanks for any help!

I just purchased a Linksys E2000 the other day. I've been trying to stream recorded HD TV programs (.wtv files) from my desktop PC to my PS3 (via CAT6 cables) and have been unsuccessful so far. So i decided to try to troubleshoot the problem.
Here is a brief explanation of my network. I have the above mentioned router with my PC (Pentium 4 3.2Ghz with HT, 7200 rpm hard drive, 2GB ram, windows 7 pro) , my brother's PC (Core2Duo, 7200 rpm hard drive, 4GB ram, windows 7 pro), and my PS3 connected to it. The PS3 and my PC (pentium 4) are connected to the router via cat6 cables. My brother's PC(core2duo) is connected to the router via a cat5 cable. Both Ethernet cards have up to date drivers, and I updated the firmware of the router.

The first thing I tried was to try to stream the .wtv files from my brothers PC. This worked flawlessly.

OK, so upgrading my parent's wireless. They have cable, 2 wired computers, one wireless laptop. I put in an older Linksys flashed to Tomato, but it is pretty slow compared to the newer wireless standards. Going to get them a new wireless router like the one I have. I have one wired, one wireless, same cable company for internet.

My laptop gets around 45 down, 11 up, my desktop around 60 down, 12 up using SpeedOf.Me to test. At the folks, one wired computer gets very similar to mine, the other wired one gets 6 down, 12 up. (all Mbps) The one in question has a latency of over 300, while even my iPhone has 69 latency.

So, long story short, what usually causes such high latency? Will replace the wireless router at their house Tuesday, and of course test the cables, but their laptop is way faster on the wireless router than the wired one is... So, I don't suspect an issue with the Cat5.

Never seen upload higher than download. Weird.

The issue: very slow upload speed on my desktop.

Speedtest results:
iPad (wireless): ~20 down, 2 up
Desktop: ~20 down, 0.3 up

I then took my laptop, unplugged the ethernet cable from my desktop and plugged it into it, and ran speedtest from my laptop: ~21 down, 2 up.

This seems to confirm that the issue is specific to my desktop, and is not the cable, router, modem, etc.

I am running on the onboard NIC. It's listed as a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. I have downloaded and installed the most recent drivers from the Realtek website without any effect.

This is very frustrating and I'm a bit at a loss at what to try next. Any help is appreciated.
 

Answer:Slow wired connection -- driver/network card issue?

Do you have multiple PCs that you can test together? Check the throughput between them. You can't (easily) diagnose a PC issue using the internet like that. You can never rule out your internet connection as the problem. For example I myself appear to be battling random slowdowns in my internet connection that are hard to track from my end. LAN is much more consistent and better for testing PC issues.

I've had my Surface Pro 3 for over a year now and I have always had this problem.
When I connect to the wired network at work using the dock, I have full internet access and can read files from my network drive, however everything hangs when I try to save a file, or create a new file. This is the case in any software (Word or other software). In Word, for example, I get the 'Saving as...' dialog box with the green bar that appears and stays for 5-10 minutes. Eventually the file is sometimes saved. It doesn't matter when it is a big file or a small file.
The same problem occurs with the surface Pro 3 dock, the USB network adaptor, and also an off-brand USB network adaptor. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 in the hope this problem would disappear, but it remains!
If I connect to our work network via WiFi, I have no such problems and can read and save files with no problem (although much slower, and only gives me limited access to the network - no printing, for example).
All updates have been installed. I've tried uninstalling the ethernet adaptor and reinstalling the latest version with no joy.
I have a Surface Pro 3, i7 64-bit processor, 8GB RAM.
I've followed these instructions for a similar problem, but also no joy (Google: Windows 10 Surface Pro 3 Docking Station Network Problem: SOLVED!)
Can anyone help?

I have run into an issue with T450S when either in or out of a docking station, browsing the internet when connected to both wired ethernet LAN and Wireless LAN is very slow or does not work at all.    After spending several hours troubleshooting, upgrading both wired and wireless drivers, I discoverd the routing table has assigned the same metric to both interfaces.  Not sure why this is happening.   Driver updates have not resolved the issue.    I support a large group of users who are constantly docking and undocking, so disabling one of the interfaces isn't an option.   I am looking suggestions as to a possible solutions.   I have already updated to the latest ethernet LAN and Wireless LAN drivers, as well as the chipset driver.    

Answer:T450s slow network speed when connected to both Wired and Wireless

The_Professor,
 
I would suggest running network speedtest on both wireless and wired ethernet and compare the results.
 
You might also try running tracert against several different public websites and look at the results and see where / if there is large latency.   It could be a path through your local network is slow, or somepoint downstream.
 
Do you have other systems in your environment that perform significantly faster?   Perhaps run the same benchmarks on them and compare?
 
Since you have already updated drivers and since you are getting low speeds on both kinds of connections, it suggests to me that either something is taking up CPU cycles on your system and causing the lag, or you have some network issues.
 
The more info on your conifig and comparative benchmarking may help the community help you isolate the issue.
 
Best regards

I have a ThinkPad W520-4282. I want to use a ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 (170W) [pn 433830U] at work and a Lenovo USB 2.0 Port Replicator with Digital Video [0A33942] at home.I did not have to install any drivers for the Mini Dock and it worked just fine driving an external monitor. After installing the driver for the Port Replicator, I could no longer drive the external monitor when attached to the mini dock or the VGA+ video port on the ThinkPad.I played with a lot of things to fix the situation and nothing worked. I even uninstalled the driver for the Port Replicator and still could not drive an external monitor. In fact the laptop did not even recognize that an external monitor was attached.Later I found using the Device Manager that the NVIDIA Qadro 1000M display adapter was disabled, proabably during installation of the Port Replicator driver. Once I enabled that, I could drive an external monitor again.Can anyone tell me if this is normal? Will I be able to use the Port Replicator if I install the driver again?

We did update the drivers but still it says "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28). Also updated the firmware but no luck Any help will me much appreciated...

Does the Thinkpad P51s support the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock? I have the Thinkpad P51s with stock Windows 10 Pro and updated to latest drivers and Windows version and installed the latest Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock drivers. Attaching the Thunderbolt 3 Dock to the P51s as described in documentation, it charges the notebook, however, noting attached to the dock is recognized. I've tested with attaching USB flash drives, headphones, Ethernet, HDMI, and DP, but nothing is recognized nor are any warnings/errors displayed in Windows. While the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock is listed as being compatible with the P51s and T570, the notebook order page does not list the Thunderbolt 3 Dock in any of the accessories lists. Lenovo Sales also confirmed that the Thunderbolt 3 Dock is fully compatible with the P51s.  However, I needed to purchase the Thunderbolt 3 Dock separately from the notebook order. What's going on? Has anybody successfully used the P51s or the T570 with the Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Dock? Or is this something I need to wait for full support via a future BIOS/driver update? Or perhaps my Thunderbolt 3 Dock is defective? Thanks,Boris

I currently have my ThinkPad T440s connected to two external monitors via the ThinkPad ProDock 40A10090US (One VGA and the other DVI-D). I currently have the two monitors and the laptop displaying separate desktops. However looking at the laptop screen is a pain when switching back and forth between the two large monitors and the laptop. I was curious if my current setup with the T440s and the Pro Dock (40A10090US) could support three monitors (One cloning the laptop screen)?

Answer:ThinkPad T440s + ThinkPad Pro Dock 40A10090US = Triple Monitor?

I don't know if you can use both the on-laptop DisplayPort and the dock DVI-D at the same time, but if you can, you should be able to get the three monitors of output you want.Not sure if you can force it to clone the laptop display, but you might as well skip the internal display entirely.

Hello,The laptop in question will not charge with the above mentioned dock when it previously did. If you shut down the mahcine and turn it back on when docked it works, but after this point if undocked and docked again it seems to lose it's ability to charge via the dock giving the "plugged in but not charging" message on the power system icon from the taskbar.As it stands the laptop can be charged by the AC port on the back and as mentioned when given a power cycle on the dock.The above issue happens on several docks with different power supplies.The laptop is no longer in warranty and it is possible to get this sent back and repaired (paying for the service) if that is an option.This is greatly inconvenient for the user affected and is causing disruption daily.

I hooked the one Acer monitor directly to the monitor port, and it works perfectly.  I then hooked the other through a Triton SS2 Extreme UV200 External DVI/VGA Video Card as was recommended for me to do so.  The Triton has a USB plug which I then connected to one of the USB ports on the back of the docking station, and loaded the software.  Everything worked great but the 2nd monitor screen enlarges everything.  So I though I could just go into the control panel and adjust that monitors settings.  However, the system is only recognizing the monitor in the monitor port of the docking station.  In the connection directions, it says the 2nd monitor has to be connected to the other USB port that is not standard and is on the far left of the back of the dock with an emblem the has 2 "+" signs stacked on each other followed by a bold "D" (I think).  I have tried to see if there is an adapter to convert the standard USB to fit this other port, and no one has been able to help me.  Does anyone have any recommendations, idea's or knowledge of how to work through this?  Thanks.

that is the Displayport, which can be converted to a DVI or VGA port using an appropriate adapter. But there is no USB adapter for the Displayport, as they use a different technology.

Hi, I got me the Dock with the goal in mind to connect all USB devices to it. But an external USB DVD-drive and Radio keboard and mouse do not work on it.  Doe any one knows a reason for it? If directly connected to Laptop it works. Thanks.

I just got a USB 3 hard drive dock, i wanted to test it out here at work before i got home so i plugged it into my thinkpad I am getting the speeds of the SATA drive through the USB2 port on my thinkpad, i tried an SSD and im getting like 220mb/s from an SSD in the dock to an SSD in my laptop with a 8GB movie Whats going on? do i really have USB3 ports? Anyone else notice this?

Answer:T400 and my new USB 3 dock - Insane speeds?

Big "B" or little "b"?  The gross USB 2.0 speed is 480 mb/s (little "b") so your measured speed is in the USB 2.0 ballpark.
 
If you really meant mB/s, then something magic is going on.
