FTP Speeds –
Just wanted a bit of advice
Before I moved modem and router to a better location I was getting 30mbps+ transferring files from windows 7 using flashfxp and on the ps3 using blackb0x ftp
Now I moved all my files onto my main Ubuntu PC and thought I would be able to transfer all the files from here, (by the way all devices are connected to a dd-wrt router by either cat5e or cat6) now I tried transferring some files to ps3 from Ubuntu and could not get any transferred with around 4 or 5 different clients kept getting permission errors, now I moved the files back to the windows 7 PC and back to using flashfxp and though it works I can only get speeds of 10mbps now any hints or anything would be appreciated this is kinda strange to me.
Edit: Would it matter what payload I use as I remember when I was using Hermes I got these speeds then switched to PL3 before moving the files to the Ubuntu PC
Using Black Box 1.02, assign static IPs to the PS3 and Ubuntu, give the PC a gateway of 192.168.1.1 and an IP of 192.168.1.1 and give the PS3 the same gateway with an IP of 192.168.1.2 directly connected

Then try and copy over some files
If your unfamiliar with setting up a static IP on Ubuntu look at this
Also make sure passive mode is turned off with the FTP application, that can give some problems, you could also try some different FTP programs, maybe try the default Ubuntu FTP?
I'm taking college networking so I can trouble shoot any of these problems, any other problems just email me at
already had it set it up correctly, found it was a dodgey cat 6 cable cheers though.
My PC does not have gigabit ethernet, just standard 10/100Mbit. I get speed of upto 17MB per second on large files, sohuld my transfer speeds be faster? I'm using cat 5 cable with static IP's assigned to both PC and PS3, via a DD-WRT flashed linksys router.
speed sounds good to me mate
100Mb ethernet cable's physical maximum speed is near 12MB.
