Slow Transfer Speeds to Server from Client

Good Afternoon,

 

I just got my server up and running with Windows Server 2011. Everything seams to be working just fine except for transferring files from my Win7 client.. As an example I moved a file that was about 1mb in size from the client to a folder on the server, it took over a minute and locked up multiple times (window said not responding). However if I pull that file back from the server to the client it is a seemingly instantaneous transfer (60+ mb/s). How can I get 60 mb/s going from the server to the client and less than 1kb/s going the other way? Thanks for any light you may be able to shine on this...!

Also, you could be suffering from bad network cabling. This is exactly the symptom you get if one of the 2 pairs is not functioning properly, but the other one is.

 

As a test, I recommend connecting the client directly to the server with a known good patch cable and trying the file copy again. This is exactly why I like having a good cable tester on hand.
