LAN Network transfer speeds issue

I'm completely desperate. Hopefully someone can help me out.

I can transfer files from my computer in the basement to my NAS with speeds of around 90 MB/s. When i do the same thing but from my office computer, I get around 6.5 MB/s. I've tried all sorts of things I've read on the internet. Nothing has worked. All cable is Cat5e or higher.

Any ideas?

OS installed on each computer? Both computers and the NAS are wired? What is the link speed on the network interface for your office computer?

Sounds like the network adapter on your computer only supports 100BASE-T. Either that, or there is a switch/router between your office computer and your NAS that isn't between your home computer and your NAS and that switch/router only supports 100BASE-T.

I assume when you say "office computer" you mean a home office, and it is still physically in the house with you?
