Two computers, one with Windows 7, one with Windows XP. Windows XP has absolutely no issues copying files across the network to a MyBook. Quick access, files copy quick.
Meanwhile, Windows 7 is at a crawl, disconnects at times, and when it does copy , itâ€™s very slow.
The crazy part is that my Windows 7 is using a â€˜nâ€™ ~180mbps connection to the wireless router, whereas the XP machine is using â€˜gâ€™ with 54mbps.
Even local file copies are slow.
This was a problem in Vista and appears to continue to be a problem in Windows 7. The ironic part here is that I donâ€™t recall having these issues in RC1. Additionally, I have read reports of the same behavior that came in Windows 7 RTM but didnâ€™t exist in RC1.
Why canâ€™t it just work â€¦ ?
And why does the bar at the top that turns green continues to go across the screen repeatedly even after all the folder and files are showing ?
Maybe I need a quad core with 8 megs and fiber optics to run Windows. I honestly donâ€™t recall these issues in the past, I think the networking stack in Vista/Windows 7 is flawed 😦
