    When I shared a 500 MB video between my macs through wireless lan today, it took me around 3 horus to get it done. I'm sure the router setting is fine because i was still able to transfer a 2xx MB file within 10mins yesterday.
    Anyone of you have experienced such problem?:confused:

    Well, there is a chance that there was something disrupting your wireless signal. Such as a microwave, or I've heard of radios. Or Wireless phones, even cell phones. All these things can cause a disruption and cause cause slow wireless data transfer.

    My advice for the future is whenever your transfering large files I suggest you find an old ehternet cable, and connect your computers, and transfer the files via that.
