I have two ubuntu machines - one operating as samba server with regular config (Ubuntu 16.04) and another one operating as client running ubuntu 14.04. Issue is that I get speed across wireless network around 20kb/s max which is ridiculous. I have tried this site https://calomel.org/samba_optimize.html and everything mentioned in the forums but nothing helps... I noticed that if I share the drive from windows and connect from ubuntu system I get around 1 mb/s which is still really slow but far more decent than 20 kb/s. The drive is NTFS which may slow down the things but not in such scale. Also I observed another behavior - sometimes speed start at 10-20 kb/s and start to slowly increase till 1mb/s max but this takes huge files and a lot of time. Network output is always higher than the write speed. This is my config, any advice and all ideas will be appreciated
Update: By testing and tweaking with options I managed to get it up to 1.2 mb/sec through wireless (card is centrino wireless n 1000) but it still seems slow.
