    I started an Acronis backup wirelessly, and after i saw the estimated
    time it would take to complete, I figured I would be smart to switch to
    an ethernet cable connection thru the Netgear router. I restarted
    Acronis, and watched its progress for more than 15 minutes. It didnt
    even get to 1%. The wireless connection backup got past 3% in far less
    time, so I switched back to wireless mode.

    Anyone know where the fault lies? Vista? networking settings? router
    settings? acronis? Just seems illogical that the wireless mode is far
    faster than using an ethernet cable.

    Did you check to make sure the wired connection was operating at 100Mbps? If
    it was only 10Mbps it could easily be slower than wireless.

  3. Boot from the Acronis Recovery CD and try the backup. That will eliminate Vista
    as a source of the problem.
