    Not always true. That is just theory. Every chipset is going to handle it differently. On paper it looks good. But in real world situations, it is not always the case.

    That's why I said, AT MOST.

    Wow, I would be ecstatic with 100MBps but I only get about 36MBps

    That would be about the same speed as local USB3 externals.

    My NAS is a Western Digital My Book Live 3TB but I can't see any other specifications besides "Gigabit ethernet".

    I am not confident with this new desktop (yet) so I haven't just replaced my old W7 desktop with it plus I am going on holiday very soon so don't want to "byte" off more than I can chew (rofl)

    Sorry, I just noticed another response so I'll submit this and read the previous response

    You will never get the full 100mb/s. You have to look at the big picture, to better understand what all comes into play. Both hardware and software wise.

    I would LOVE 100MBps but realize that's theoretical. 36MBps falls way short of theory, I was/am hoping for more than 36MBps hence new computer and, possibly, a new modem

    Maybe the limiting factor is the NAS? I am just exploring my options.

    If I have hit some limit then a new modem wont help. And, considering that I will most likely go "wired", a new AC modem isn't any point.

Just curious ... do PC-to-PC file transfers count towards cable Internet service usage? For instance, if I move 10 GB of data from one PC to another in my Homegroup, is that 10 GB counted as part of the 100GB+ of cable data that I've used? Thank you! :)
