Howdy,

pc1:Blag, wi-fi(54Mb/s), 1gb,1.8Ghz core2duo
pc2: Blag, ethernet, 1gb, 2,4Ghz

Copying files from pc1 > pc2 on home network is slower than I hoped for. I would expect to get at least 20Mb/s with wi-fi involved . Current max. speeds for pc1 > pc2 copies as follows:

SCP: 400-500KB/s
samba:1MB/s
FTP:1MB/s

Downloading via internet on pc2 achieves 2MB/s, which is the limit of the internet connection, but neverthless double the best network speed.

Not done much testing, but I am able to FTP from pc1 > xbox(xbmc) at around 20MB/s, which initially makes pc2 look like the trouble maker..

I get around 5 to 6 MB/s ftp transfers off a server running blag on a wired 100mbit connection.
I'm guessing that besides such obvious factors as local firewall and local dns server network card driver is the bottleneck, but I am perhaps wrong.

one other thing to watch out for is if in ifconfig's output you start seeing errors for the interfaces - my experience was that in such case the card or the cable between the two is a bust. not 100% sure if this applies to wireless, as you can get errors logged there for reasons other then a bad card.

Which cards & drivers do you use?

I know that you are dealing with the lvm issue on the other thread but..
Code:
 mii-tool
eth0: no autonegotiation, 10baseT-HD, link ok

Note the different speeds. The results show different speeds 'cos I was in an office with a "supa-doopa link", whist the latter shows my connection at home. They both show "link ok" though.

Heya. Networking may not be the issue if the interface used in the internet download test is the same one used for pc1>pc2 test, I would look at disk controller / driver or hardware.

FYI: mii-tool don't work on wireless , use the ethtool command instead.

Code:
 
[root@eff w_scan-20080105]# ethtool eth1
Settings for eth1:
   Supported ports: [ TP ]
   Supported link modes:   10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                           100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                           1000baseT/Full
   Supports auto-negotiation: Yes
   Advertised link modes:  10baseT/Half 10baseT/Full
                           100baseT/Half 100baseT/Full
                           1000baseT/Full
   Advertised auto-negotiation: Yes
   Speed: 1000Mb/s
   Duplex: Full
   Port: Twisted Pair
   PHYAD: 1
   Transceiver: internal
   Auto-negotiation: on
   Supports Wake-on: pumbag
   Wake-on: g
   Current message level: 0x00000001 (1)
   Link detected: yes


Code:
[root@eff w_scan-20080105]# ifconfig eth0 |tail -n 6
          RX packets:1180670 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:815569 errors:152 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:1344892055 (1.2 GiB)  TX bytes:116989431 (111.5 MiB)
