Increase transfer speed

 Hi guys... I don't know much if any about networking... All I know is that I want to access files from the family PC from my Android phone (only 1 PC in the house and I want to watch my movies from my phone while my brother is using it)

 

I did achieve it by using windows' folder sharing thingy... Now the problem is I'm only getting 4-8 MB/s transfer speed... I would like it to be faster...

 

What should I do? Upgrade the PC? Upgrade the router? Buying a NAS or other storage solution isn't an option (I can't possibly convince my parents to buy one xd)

What's the CPU usage like with you trying to watch movies on your phone and someone's using the PC?

I actually haven't checked... I was just testing it earlier and the PC was idle when I got those speeds... Will check tomorrow (in a few hours) haven't slept yet and it's already 5am xd

You can make a NAS from existing old PC components you may have around
