Hello all, looking for some professional advice. Myself, I know my way around PC’s, but wouldn’t call myself an expert. In any event, here is the problem at hand. I am trying to do a network setup to transfer files between my personal pc and my network server (or nas if you prefer) at 10gbit speeds. I know I will never get a full 10gbit due to overhead, but to no avail I can’t even get close. Here is my current setups.
Windows 10 Pro
MSI Prestige x570 Motherboard (built in 10gbit card)
Ryzen 9 3900X
32GB DDR4 3200
MSI Gforce RTX 2070
1TB 970 Evo SSD
ASUS ROG x470-F Motherboard
Ryzen 7 2700
64GB DDR4 2666
6 WD Blue HD’s
250GB 970 EVO Cache Drive
ASUS XG-C110C 10G Network Card
Computers are current connected with Cat6e with the MikroTik in-between running in switch mode (The one Tom just reviewed on). I can connect just fine, no problems there, no delays, linking at 10G. (I’ve even tried fiber cards too).
Testing with iperf3 on the server, then start iperf3 on my pc, transfer speeds top out at around 1 to 1.7gbit. Even transferring files via explorer are very slow.
Here’s the kicker, If I boot my PC from a usb drive with Ubuntu for example (anything other than windows), I do the same thing with iperf, I can push 9.6gbit every time both ways. So IMPO that rules out my hardware and something I’m missing.
Go back to windows, speeds diminish. I have tried the mtu settings, autotuninglevel settings, Offloads off, firewalls off…nothing.
Hopefully someone has ran into this with a fix…any help would be greatly appreciated.
