Hey everybody, first post here, but I sure have been looking around and reading a lot getting this NAS setup. All seems to be going pretty well with a few quirks here and there. With that said…
I’ve been transferring movies from my laptop over to the NAS, little bits at a time and am almost done with them. My collection so far is pretty small, ~100GB and I’ve moved around 90GB so far. Until yesterday, I was getting about 4.0-4.5MB/s transfer speeds. Then while I was downloading another movie, the transfer speed dropped to less than 2MB/s, so I realized that I had my wireless N router switched to only G mode, so I went and switched it to N mode and all of a sudden the transfer speed went up to 5.5MB/s, so I’m thinking great! Downloading movie was as fast as usual and so was movie transfer.
Then later that day I go to transfer the movie to the NAS and speeds are around 500KB/s to 3.0MB/s, but mostly on the lower end of that range.
I didn’t change any other settings. The MBL isn’t streaming anything so I know it shouldn’t be busy. No backing up anything or creating libraries, etc… The size of the movies has been roughly the same, between 1.5-3GB.
Any ideas what could have happened? I haven’t tried using ethernet from my laptop to router yet, will in just a few minutes though.
Setup is: Laptop (wireless N, 10/100 nic) --> Netgear WNR834B 10/100 draft N --> MyBookLive through cat6 cable.
I know I need a new gigabit router with the new true wireless N, but not sure if it’s in the budget right now.
Thanks for any help!
