    I'm having a WEIRD problem.

    I have two PCs running Windows 7 Home Premium, one connected to my router via wifi, the other cable. I transfer things back n forth on the homegroup without a problem, usually. Lately, I've noticed it was very slow. I downloaded LanBench and discovered something just plain weird.

    I can SEND to the other PC at multiple MB/s... but I can only RECEIVE from it at a few KB/s.

    I tried disabling IPv6. I also noticed that the Network Location Awareness service was hanging at every startup. I've disabled that and Network List Service (depends on NLA), but it doesn't seem to have done much.

    Any thoughts?

    Not sure I quite understand!

    Which one of the computers is reciving slowly? Is it the same when sending from the PC?

    What speed are you connected at on the WiFi connection?
