    Please help me - illogical NAS transfer rate!

    Hallo!
    First of all I'm sorry for my ugly english but I'm going mad trying to understand my very strange LAN. I really need your help!

    I recently purchased a Synology DS-107+ NAS, interconnected via a D-Link DGS-1005D with my HP NC8430 notebook. All of the controllers are Gigabit, and I'm using 2x2m. long CAT6 cables. Other peripherals connected to the switch are a MacBook (turned off at this time) with 10/100 controller, an ethernet printer (turned off at this time) and a Xbox360 (turned off also).

    So at this time I just have 3 peripherals turned on: my laptop, the switch, the NAS. Jumbo frames are turned on and set to 9004 both on the NAS & the notebook.

    And now the funny & strange thing begins.
    I open a folder containing, say, 5 files 700 MB each. I drag'n'drop one of them into the shared folder on the NAS, and I get 51 Mbit/s as maximum transfer rate (constant over the whole process). The same for the other files.
    But if I drag'n'drop the whole folder, containing exaclty the same files, no one more or less, I get 122 Mbit/s as transfer speed.

    What the hell could be the logical explaination for this crazy situation??


    Thank you for all the help anyone will give me!

    Simple, its the Microsoft kernel. And 51mbps is really not bad.
