Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2007 12:39 PM (in response to SVPirate)After installation of Leopard I did have a lot of problems with reduced speed transferring files to and from other Macs on my network as well as to and from my Airport disk. All the way down to 0.5 MB/sec
Leopard sets AppleTalk to be active as default. Turn off AppleTalk in network setup and you will hopefully see a significant increase in speed on file transfers. I am back to 5-7 MB/sec to and from my Airport disk, which is okay.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 12, 2007 7:36 PM (in response to SVPirate)I have a MacPro and MacBook Pro, both with Leopard and networking over Airport Extreme router is terribly sloooowww. On Tiger it was MUCH faster. Unfortunately, AppleTalk is off for me so I can't turn it off to try and speed things up.
Any other suggestions?MacPro, Mac OS X (10.4.10), MacBook Pro Core Duo
Currently Being ModeratedNov 13, 2007 8:22 AM (in response to SVPirate)Yup! Same problem here. Transferring between my MBP and a G5 both running Leopard client is fast (6gigs in 3 minutes) Transferring that same file between either the MBP and G5 and our G5 server running Leopard Server is very slow (23 minutes)
What's up apple? Seems like a very simple situation on stock machines with fresh installs and it saddens me that Apple has this issue.
All appletalk is turned off and everything is going over the same gigabit switch that worked under Tiger.MBP 2.33, Mac OS X (10.5)
