Cabling may be an issue here. I have Cat 5e and Cat 6 all over except for one link. Cat 5 is built into the house and not easy to change. Cat 5 does not support Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth - effectively crippling all the Gig interfaces to Fast Ethernet (100Mb/s).
Anyone with perfect Cat 6 cabling?
Cat 5 works fine with gigabit switches except if you have strong EMI/RFI in your house. Currently running my home network with ftp cat 5 so cabling is not the issue with this device.

believe me, cabeling is not an issue. I tried with CAT5e and CAT6 cabel, the GBit Switch was not more tha 2 meters away...
No, no this is not the reason.

Just got myself a 4TB version, what a joke, can't get any more than 6.5 mbs no matter what combination I use. Wish I'd read this forum first. Can only suggest to anyone considering this to look else where.
I can see this ending up on a popular online auction site.
