My Book Live 2TB - Firmware 02.42.03-027
Router: Cisco E2500
Machine A - Windows Server 2003 with a wired connection to the router
Machine B - Windows 7 laptop with a wifi connection to the router
From (A), I was able to transfer many GBs of data over to the MBL with no issues, flawless performance.
From (B), when I access the MBL drive with a drive mapping to \mbl\share, it crawls at a extremely slow speed. Simple JPG photos ~5MB take forever to open, even timeout sometimes. Windows Explorer shows the green progress bar at the top showing the file is loading!
This led me to believe that this is a network issue. But when I access a network share on (A) from the same laptop (B), it is blazing fast. I am not sure what component is the bottleneck here. It is almost as if the MBL throughput is throttled only when it is accessed via wireless client but it pushes out the content just fine to a wired client.
Anyone else seen this issue? How should I go about troubleshooting this? Are there any settings I can tweak to improve the performance? I have no other issues with network performance in any other area, things just crawl when the MBL is accessed via wifi.
