Twonky is the software that talks to your devices such as your PC, your SmartTV, your SmartPhone, etc. It was installed when you installed your MyCloud and that is how you see your MyCloud device on the home network.
If you have a PC you can find out it’s IP address by opening your file manager; it will show up under Media Devices.
Once you find it, Right-Click on WDMyCloud and select Properties to find the IP address; it will be 192.168.x.x (the x.x) are two other numbers.
Then as per the instructiions above, in your browser enter 192.168.x.x:9000 to start the Twonky interface.
In my case it is 192.168.2.22:9000 but in your case the two numbers following 192.168. will be different …
Thanks for the information Bob59. I may have to mess around with that later on.
However, this post is to update you all of my transfer speeds after changing some of the settings in my dashboard.
First, to verify I have a decent internet connection, here is my latest speedtest result:
And here are some of the updated configurations I’m using on my dashboard. I’ve disabled the cloud functionality and the media streaming.
And here are the updated transfer speeds as a result. I’m using the same style as earlier, but to refresh you all:
2 different files will be transferred - a “SINGLE” (1 file, 4.4GB), and a “MULTI” (51 files, 4.4GB).
There are two different transfer types - MOVING (cutting from one place and pasting to the next), and COPYING (copying from one place and pasting to the next). Finally, I will be transferring BOTH directions for comparison. “SSD” is my local hard drive, and “NAS” is the MyCloud.
Here are the results:
Copying from SSD to NAS Single
Copying from SSD to NAS Multi
Moving from SSD to NAS Single
Moving from SSD to NAS Multi
Quite the improvement since the previous runs. Here are the results going the opposite direction:
Copying from NAS to SSD Single
Copying from NAS to SSD Multi
Moving from NAS to SSD Single
Moving from NAS to SSD Multi
Conclusion - by turning off ‘Media Streaming’ and ‘Cloud Access’ it seems I have improved my transfer speed from my SSD to the NAS, but nowhere near where it should be I believe.
Can someone experiencing slow speeds try this and see if you’re getting similar results?
I really don’t know what else to do without tampering with specific settings that may void my warranty. I don’t know how to set up a case number or anything like that yet. This is mostly to visually show you all my speeds after turning off some of the ‘streaming’ settings.
Take it easy.
