    Unfortunately that is the current limit of the net code, even with an ethernet adapter you'll get that maximum speed.

    I used to get 300+mbps over http, so it must be the ftp code/protocol.

    I have been saying this for months, wireless ftp is too slow for big games. Imagine transferring games like Bayonetta 2 (14gb) or Doom (22gb with patch)? It's OK with smaller indie games but useless for bigger retail games. We need a USB-C to USB-C cable transfer, this will be blistering fast and won't required the need to remove the SDcard and having to RCM the Switch all the time.

    I believe what you mean is USB 3.1 Type-C to USB 3.1 Type-A. Is the switch capable of usb 3.1 speeds? Just because it has a type-c connector doesn't mean it's usb 3.1 spec. I'm thinking it's usb 2.0 PD and you won't get much more than 20MB/s if that. Anyone have a link to the actual controller hardware and what it is?

    Also, you can already mount it as usb, but only from rcm afaik. I do it all the time instead of ftpd because ftpd nuked my card.

    EDIT: I forgot I use txftp now, no probs.

    Does SX OS's FTP app work without activating the license?

    I use a MacBook Pro, USB-C to USB-C will be ideal. If your computer has no USB-C port then use an adaptor for USB-A. I believe it is 3.1, Switch was launched last year - no one uses 2.0 anymore. Current mounting has severe speed limits due to proprietary API that can't be used by open-source program.

    I live in the other 93% of the market share so I don't need an adapter, you do.

    Why 93%? Why not 94%? :lol:

    The future is USB-C, get a new computer.

    If there's any reason to move on to USB-C, it's because of this.

    I just realised that downloading games from the net using wifi is faster than transferring the game to my Switch using FTP. If someone can make a browser for the Switch, we can download the game directly to the SDcard, without wasting time transferring it!
