Right. I make some test with ISO image 75.3MB over LAN Wifi -> Ethernet 100. I run server PXE (TFTPD32) + Apache HTTP in laptop Wifi 54Mb WPA2/AES and boot other PC in LAN with gPXE 1.0.1 (have in motherboard BIOS):
Ctrl-B (to stop autoboot from TFTP)
dhcp net0 (config net0 interface from TFTPD32 DHCP)
chain memdisk iso
  • HTTP time download: 51 seconds :-)
  • TFTP time download: 1 min. 28 sec. (88 seconds)
HTTP is fast than TFTP :-)
