So, I'm trying to move a rather large set of files from one computer to another, WoW to be specific, 24.1GB. The data transfer rate is only 2.3MB/s though. How do I go about using the full bandwidth of my router?
The sending computer is hard wired and the receiving is wireless, if that matters.

I've honestly not got a clue. It's a 2.5" 7200rpm drive. 500GB, if that helps. I'll see if I can get the model# and find the specific data next time I can get on that computer.
Wireless signal seemed to be a part, as after some finigiling with that I got it up to about 3.6MB/s. The router is capable of 300Mb/s transfer speeds and my computer that's hardwired to it has a gigabit ethernet port, so I imagine I should get a lot closer to the 30 or so MB/s capable.
