When you ftp over a big videofile for example? Im getting 1.4 to 2.0 MiB/s. Just want to compare speeds to see how my system/network is holding up.it feels rather low.. When people are talking about 5000 kbps moonlight. I dont think my moonlight is reaching this speed.. My laptop eaily gets 39 mb down and 9 mb up. Soo yeah.. What are your speeds?

5000 kilobytes = 4.76837158 mebibytes
https://www.google.pt/search?q=5000...4V4e-GM_gUoaFnNgN#q=100+megabytes+to+MebiByte
https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/MebiByte

For reference: 100 megabytes = 95.3674316 mebibytes

Usually: MB = Megabyte / MiB = Mebibyte

My speed over FTP, from my laptop to the Vita, using Wi-Fi on both ends, is ~2MB (that's megabyte).

Megabyte is the same as mebibyte? never heard of it.
So youre getting the same speed 2 megabyte/mib.. Which would be.. close to 16000 kbps?

They're not the same, but the calculated values are close. The bigger the values, the larger the difference.

No:
2 megabytes = 2000 kilobyte
2 mebibytes = 2 097.152 kilobytes

(kbps referes to "kylobyte per second")

Lol im getting so confused. so 2 mebiytes is not 2097 kbps but 2097Kilobytes

Then let me just ask differently, if i get max tranfer speed 2 mebibyte. what is the max kbps im getting for moonstream possibly?

The max you're able to get, without any aditional effort, would be 2 097.152 kilobytes, a little less perhaps, but you have to take in account the encoding, processing power, etc, that comes from everything, I guess. So that max limit is a little hard to get to.

Around 2mbps on my end. Using a pretty shitty router (Cisco DPC3825), but really close to it. Vita 1000 btw.

Will test on my PSTV once I get a memory card for it (not swapping my Vita's memcard, thanks).

No offense i know youre trying but im still confused. i kinda get what youre saying but the final question still remains as to, what is the max kbps im getting for moonstream possibly? 2097 then? and this is considered normal? Then why are people putting 3500 or 5000 in config files..

5000 kbps = 0.6103515625 megabyte
1 mebibyte= 1.048.576 bytes / 1 megabyte = also 1048576 so i dont get it...it's a misconception that it would be 1000000...
Anyway going by that. I would do 2/ 0.6103= 3.277 so then we do 0.610 x 3.277=1.999897 megabyte.
So mebibyte is pretyt much the same as megabyte i'd say.
so we do 5000 kbps x 3.277=16.385 kbps. rough estimate as max kbps.

Sorry, my bad... Also, was sleepy as hell when I posted the stuff above...

The kbps does not refere to KiloByte, but to Kilobit.
To refere to kilobyte, it would have to be a big B, like kBps.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_rate_units

That's kbps, meaning kilobit per second, not kilobyte.
So:

5000 kilobits (kbps) = 4.76837158 mebibits

For reference:
5000 kilobits = 625 kilobytes
5000 kilobits = 4.76837158 mebibits
2 mebibits (MiB) = 262.14400 kilobytes (KB)

So, if you're able to send data around ~2 MiB, that means that using the 5000 version, you're only able to use half of the kbps that supports it.
I hope this has helped better.

Ah.. so youre saying im NOT getting the supported speed.. Damn.
I think i know whre the confusion lies. I thought i am transferring mebiBYTES. instread of mebiBITS. oh lol. that changes everything.
Im gonna recheck if this is really true.

How am i getting such low transfer speeds? I know my wifi network is more capable then this. my laptop easily does great speeds.

Wait, no...

Remember: MiB is Mebibytes

5000 kilobits (kbps) = 4.76837158 mebibytes (typo there in the post above)

2 mebibytes = 2097.152 kilobytes
2 mebibytes = 16777.216 kilobits

(God damn it, I'm getting all confused too... Why the fuck so many units?!?!?)

Anyway, I think that's it...

So, yeah... You should be able to use full 5000, since when you transfer over FTP you get around 16000 of it...

LOL im laughing my ass off. Yeah.. my head spinning too, but i kinda get it now.

Phew. so im getting the requird speeds. I just heard from someone if he said 8000 got him scrambled image. but it could be his wifi is really sucky idk. but it sounded like it could beyond the vita's hardware if i were to put kbps too high.

Wifi transferspeeds with FTP is laughable.
Wireless to wireless is the slowest.
Wired to wireless might be faster but still not the best.
Wired to wired is obviously the best.

I think that everyone would roughly get 2MB transfer speed with their Vita.
