LAN transfer speeds

New member here: hi.

Having dispensed with XP SP2’s firewalls on my PC (XP Pro) and laptop (XP Home) I find transfer speeds between both machines and my network hard drive, a Netgear SC101 connected to my Netgear RangeMax router have halved, or worse.

My PC is connected by wire to the router and the speed decrease is astonishing. What took hardly a moment now takes very long seconds.
My laptop connects wirelessly to the router and transfer speed there is down from 3Mbps to under 1Mbps.

I like Comodo in every other respect; is there any way round this very annoying behaviour?

I’ve run anti malware apps on both machines and they’re clean.


No thoughts? If not I’ll let my question slide away. ???

As a measure it took 25 seconds to transfer a 10MB folder from my PC over the wire to my network drive. It shouldn’t have taken more than a few.

Can you please post a maximized screenshot of your network monitor rules so we can see if there’s anything odd in there. Please mask out any personally identifiable info. :wink:
