I bought MBWE II (White light) 4 TB raid 1 3 days back.
I was very excited and happy to have it in my hands untill I turned it on and installed it in my home network EXACTLY followed the instructions in the guide.
I went to administration setting and It is so slow. (My remote desktop on my USA server loades faster than my local address)
It is DHCP enabled (as soon az I set static IP, it is getting lost and no access to it again until a hard reset) but it is getting lost every 2 hourse in the network. I cant ping to the IP and I cant access the files unless I reset the hardware. (it is not getting shut down. I hold the shut down button 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 seconds but no luck) I had to remove the power or just reset the MBWE.
It is so slow. with FTP I am getting maximum of 1 MB/second (mostly 750 KB/second)
Guys, I followed many articles in here and other forums but it seems like I wasted my money just for the beauty of WD product.
I had a WD PASSPORT many years and I was happy with it but I believe they are not good in network products.
I appreciate any help guys.
Thanks & Regards.
AND BTW: it is very slow copying or moving files from one folder to another folder on MBWE II also. I cant believe this poor performance.
Maybe I did a mistake in installation, but really I followed the exact same stepts in installation and untill now I reset the MBWE for 10 times.
