Default Transfer speed??


I was wondering if any one could help me!!

I have always found it hard to understand Transfer speeds/calculations:confused : , for example

I want transfer data on a wireless connection , the data to be transferred was 2gb, how long would it take for the data to be transferred and how would you show your calculations??

I have tried to read up calculation steps on various websites but they seem to go over my head and I'm always left scratching my head!!

Default Re: Transfer speed??

it completely depends on your wireless cards speed and your network speed, mine cable is about 10mb a second hard wired for download, 2mb for upload, so when i upload stuff it only goes about 100kb a second... so, you on the other hand, anywhere from 100kb a second to 200kb a second meaning 2gb = rouglhly 2097152kb, divide that by 100 or 200 which is rouglhy

20 971.52 seconds.

To sum up what Spec said, you need to know the link's bandwidth before you can do any calculating.
