comment Only Around 50MB/sec Max Network Transfer; had 70-100MB/s on Windows, Ubuntu reports Gigabit Speeds, Why?
So, my server computer runs Windows 8.1 now. When my laptop was also running 8.1, file transfers to and from the server computer were around 100MB/s. I switched the laptop over to Xubuntu, and now I only get 50MB/s. I feel as if there might be some artificial cap on data transfers somewhere, but I'm not sure. The computers themself have the hardware to handle higher transfer speeds, but only on Linux does it go slower than expected (ifperf transfers are fine).

Quoting the PPA name doesn't help either; the same /-less output is posted.

Hmm, I opted to try out a simple FTP server (vsftpd) and got it setup pretty quickly, and transfers are far better (got up to 114MB/s on a file). I tried out those tweaks (and a few others found online) for Samba, and had no luck with them improving speeds. I'll look into NFS again at some point, but it seems like quite a chore to setup

iperf is pretty cool; ran it on all three computers, transfers were around 1.08 GBytes, 928 Mbits/sec bandwidth. So it does seem like you're right about it being Samba-related. I'll have a look at NFS; but I imagine it would also be able to share to Windows users as well?
