Slow ProCurve 1800-24G switch

Slow ProCurve 1800-24G switch

In my home office I have recently fitted a PROCURVE J9028B 1800-24G switch.  Ports 23T & 24T are LACP bonded to a Synology DiskStation.  Both PC's on the network are reporting 1GB network, the Diskstation is reporting 2 x 1GB networks. 


When I initiate a file transfer from anywhere to anywhere (PC to PC, PC to DiskStation, etc.) I only get 50MB/s transfer rate.


Both PC's are using the Linux MInt OS. The DiskStation runs another flavour of Linux.


The switch is set up with DHCP off, so that service can be provided by the 1GB router (Draytek Vigor 2860n). All the switch ports are set as :-


Port Type: 10/100/1000-T

Link Status: Up

Speed/Duplex Status: 1000FDX

Flow Control Status: Disabled

Auto-negotiation: Enabled

Frame Type: All



Any advice to get me up to a decent transfer speed would be appreciated.

Just because a PC has a 1Gb NIC doesn't mean it can actually process a file transfer at that rate.


50MB/s is about 400Mb/s, and that could be the best your hardware can achieve.


If you want to exclude your network from the equation to get your best speed baseline - connect two PCs with a crossover cable and do a direct transfer to see what you get.
