All of a sudden, longer wait time when powering up and connecting to share folder?

ive noticed when i first powerup i get that loading icon for atleast 15 seconds, where it use to be instant

and then when i try to connect to my network it takes just as long.

anyone else notice this with the latest firmware?

sometimes mine is fast, sometimes slow.  haven’t really noticed a difference with firmware updates.

i do notice if i unplug it, then power it up, it takes a long time, i guess because of the cache being cleared out.

yeah i did unplug it before this started happening, so that could be it.
