I'll get right to the point: I have a 17" iMac connected directly into my router on my cable connection and a 12" iBook connected via the Airport Extreme card. Transfering files between both Macs (Personal File Sharing, FTP Access) is painfully slow. Right now I'm transfering 10.3 mb worth of files from my iMac to the iBook and its estimated to take about 40 mins. When I watch file transfers I noticed they go a little and then pause for a while. Upon further testing, I noticed the problem lies in my iBook, which has terribly slow bandwidth in all internet aspects at home. When I take it on campus and use the network there, it runs like a champ. I use a Linksys router which uses 802.11b. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. As of right now, my best bet for transfering files is via ethernet. I have a firewire cord on the way so I can start doing that. But, I want to be able to transfer small files over the network. It shouldn't be so slow!
