I have an iPhone computer file space for storage app called Air sharing that uses a WebDAV hosting server to let you get connected to it with a PC. For some reason, a few weeks after setting up Windows seven, computer file exchanges to or from this (or any other) WebDAV hosting server became amazingly, mind-numbingly, literally-33.6K-dialup slowly. And yet, from my other entire computer systems in the house, even those still running Windows XP, computer file exchanges over the LAN to my iPhone were as fast as you would anticipate.

These days, lastly, I got so fed up with it that I — gasp! — explored for a remedy. To my discomfort, I discovered the response in just an instant or two, showing quite succinctly just how plenty of time I had been spending just “putting up with it.” Curiously, the root cause is none other than Online Traveller 8. Quite basically, all you have to do is converting off IE’s automated proxy’s configurations recognition. Here is how to do that:

1.      In Internet Explorer, open the Tools menu, then click Internet Options.
2.      Select the Connections tab.
3.      Click the LAN Settings button.
4.      Uncheck the “Automatically detect settings” box.
5.      Click OK until you’re out of dialog hell.

Immediately after doing this, file transfers to my iPhone graduated from CompuServe Modem Simulator to Transwarp Conduit Simulator. It was that much of an improvement.
I found the answer on this Microsoft Technet discussion, incidentally. The solution was posted by “Daniel CD” about two-thirds of the way down the page. Props to that guy.
