    Hi. I have an iMac and MBP. When I transfer files over the network (wireless) from one computer to the other, it is quite slow. I think around 1~1.5mb/sec.

    Is this normal or expected performance on file transfer via wireless? If so what can I do to increase the performance? Settings on the wireless router?

    thanks for you help.

    <thought I'd steal this thread!

    I'm having the same problem as the person above me!

    I have MBA 2011 connected via 2011 APexpress. File sharing is enabled but is transferring stupid slow. 900 MB is taking 1 hour!

    And oh yeah, screen sharing is working brilliantly and fast, though I turned it off to see I transfer speeds would increase. No luck there tho :(
