So I finally got my new Powerbook 15" and am now trying to get everthing off my desktop PC onto the firewire drive I have connected to the Powerbook. I read some other thread where they said using an ethernet cable between the two machines would be the best solution. I did that and had no problem getting the computers to see each other. I then decided to use Direct Connect/FTP instead of normal file sharing so that I can resume in case something goes wrong. My problem is that I'm only getting 500 kB/s throughput between the two machines. I would think it should be a lot higher since the Powerbook has gigabit ethernet and my PC has a 10/100. Is there something I need to do to increase the bandwidth (FYI, I looked at both computers and they both recognize it as a 100MB connection). At this rate it will take me a couple of days to transfer my 100GBs or data. Any help?
