I have two ubuntu machines, that are both connected to a local network via WiFi. But at the same time they are also directly linked with an ethernet cable.
Now on one machine I am sharing a folder by properties->Local Network Share->Share this folder. On the other machine I access that folder by clicking "other locations" in nautilus and then clicking on the machine that is sharing the folder and then I mount that folder. Now when I am copying files out of the folder I get extremely low data rates (between 0.2MB/s and 3MB/s).
However, when I unactivate the WiFi adapter on one of the machines and unmount and mount the folder again, I get transfer rates in the 50MB/s range. So apparently ubuntu prefers using WiFi for file tranfer over ethernet. How can I change this behaviour or how can I tell the system to always use the ethernet network to access this folder?
Some extra information:
I set up the IP-addresses of the ethernet network manually. The sharing computer is 10.0.0.1 and the other one is 10.0.0.2.
