    Question Any alternative to FTP transfers?

    My ethernet port is broken so I tried a USB wireless stick but I'm only getting a 1 MB per sec transfer speed using WPA2 encryption. My PC is within a metre of the VU+ Duo 4K SE. I can get a full broadband speed of 5 MBps when downloading stuff on my PC off the internet via the router downstairs yet WLAN transfers are only 1 MBps. Anything I can do to increase the speed? This is the stick I'm using: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Is there any alternative to LAN or WLAN transfers other than physically removing the hard drive and connecting it to another PC?

    I copy large volumes of files to a usb stick or ssd first. Much faster in the long run.

    I think you can get USB ethernet ports. Not sure if the drivers are supported on E2 though.

    I don't think they are. (Although @bridman made some progress a while ago - https://www.world-of-satellite.com/s...igabit-adapter)

    I know there is a driver for USB Ethernet adapters based on the AX88179 chip in the feeds for the Zgemma H7.
    But as I understand it, it doesn't necessarily follow that there are similar drivers for any other E2 receiver.

    Some are.
    I've run the Amazon Basic one on an et8000.

    How your network port was broken? Duo4KSE is a new box, so it sounds strange.
