Unstable Win7 File Transfer Over Ethernet (Media Sharing)

Lately I had a problem when opening a video from my laptop over the shared folder and it just stopped midway through while opening the video. The good thing about having file sharing is, to reduce the steps of transferring files from another machine to another one by up to 3 steps, by just transferring them directly through network without using any thumbdrives and eventually, the file will just rot in the thumbdrive where you forgot to delete them

Daily Wifi Timer

This is what I found last week when I go into the wifi 'Advanced' settings, the wifi toggle schedules. There is no third party apps needed for this, just android itself. Minimum android version should be 4.1.x, Jelly Bean that is, and this scheduler should helps you in terms of saving more battery life when you're sleeping, or when you off to work daily but the scheduler still missing some key features, specific day setting. 

Specific day setting meant here is, the user able to tick which day to enable the scheduler rather than doing it daily for example setting it up for working days, Monday to Friday, from 8am to 5pm, this could be great though, but the current default scheduler only has time setting and there's no day ticker and that means non-working days also will be included.

Win 7 Freezes When Upload on Folder Sharing

I had this problem several times when uploading from either my laptop or desktop. The problem is, when you upload a file to either one of these machine, the file transfer window suddenly stopped responding or freezes and no way to close the copy/move operation window except force shutdown the machine or reset button.

However, I just tried the method found in this forum, and it worked. to use the fix, RUN>CMD and type in the commands below or paste them.
  • netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
  • netsh int ip set global taskoffload=disabled
Tested it and it worked and no freezes.
