Thread: FTP / Bandwidth Question
05-18-2005, 09:50 AM #1DougbtnGuestFTP / Bandwidth Question
I wondered if anyone might be able to help me with this little conundrum:
As a recent switched from PC I have been thrilled with both my macs however, last weekend I was trying to upload about 4Gb of photos to my printer and although they eventually went, I could do no other work that involved the web during that time. I checked the system monitor and it would allow me no download bandwidth at all whilst the uploads were happening. If I opened a browser then it could not even find a page Is this normal? Does anyone know if I should be tweaking anything?
FYI I was running a G5 Dual 2Ghz, connected to Netgear Router and using a 1Mb ADSL line and the FTP software was "Transfer"
Thanks in advance for any advice.

how long has it been since your last repairing permissions, or last restart before this happened? is the router you mentioned a wireless connection or wired? is your firewall on or set up correctly? are you using any port forwarding methods?

Uploading that much data will slow the rest of your network down to a crawl. Especially 1MB DSL. I'm on 3MB Cable and that happens at times to me too... but not as bad as when I had DSL. It's normal.
