OK I have both blue ring and whitelight editions. I get really weird SMB performance in WinXP.
Blue ring: SMB 6.2MB/s FTP 9.2MB/s
White ligt: SMB 6.9MB/s FTP 12MB/s
I have 100M ethernet router Buffalo Airstation WHR-G54S. I understand that blue ring ftp speed can't be better because of its CPU and white lights FTP speed can't be better because I only have 100M LAN.
But those SMB transfer rates are a joke. YOU people, who get 33MB/s SMB speed, can you post your configuration?
Why is my SMB speed so slow?
