I realize the slow topic has been worn out, but most suggestions are for Mac users.
OS: Windows 7 Home
I have the following setup (That might be taking a trip back to B**t B*y)
MBL 3TB (Latest firmware as of 10/5/2013)
*ports 9080 ext / 80 internal & 9443 ext /443 internal
*Forwarding to MBL with ports correctly configured
*WIRED access from computer to router & router to MBL
Inside the LAN I’m getting 1.7 to 3MBs speeds (not great, but ok for not having a gig router)
From outside (via WD2go and mapped to explorer) I’m getting 40meg upload on single large files
When uploading a folder (say with thousands of pictures) I’m getting 17kbs. The sun will burn out before these things transfer!
I confirmed my ISP is not blocking or throttling, tested with firewall off. Replaced all cables with “store bought” instead of home made. Turned off AV software, still no increase in speed. A 3 meg JPG should not take 39 minutes.
What am I doing wrong?
Also, what good is NAS if you can’t map it without using a web interface? Acronis, Windows 7 backup and others don’t support NAS drives, especially across the internet. Can’t find a way to connect without using WD2go.
Is it just not designed to work from “office to home”?
I sincerely appreciate any advice.
