I’ve gone through most complaints on the forum about slow connections to MBL over Gigabit networks and can’t seem to solve my problem. My computer is an HP with 32bit Win 7 and I have a Cisco/Linksys E3000 router; my MBL is 3TB.
The network seems to be working fine for my other devices. It is generally running at 100 Mb/s, unless I disconnect the slower 100 Mb devices, in which case I can run the full 1000 Mb/s in duplex mode.
I know the unit is operational b/c after much frustration, in Gigabit mode, I connected my MBL directly to my computer and got roughly 450 Mb/s read/690 Mb/s write times. As far as I know, those speeds are excellent.
However, when I connect through my E3000 router my speed drops to levels not seen since the dial up era. I did a file transfer and it was consistently in the 3 kb/s range…with occasional “bursts” to 30kb/s, which is still incredibly slow.
I tried to disable the firewall and anti-virus (though I’m not sure it was ever disabled). I’ve tried different ports. I’ve tried resetting the unit, computer, etc… I tried to follow some directions to get into Network Settings and disable the Jumbo Frame (I had no such option to disable).
I don’t want a 3TB paperweight, but so far it’s been about that useful. Basically, HELP.
