I know there are alot of issues regarding the 3-4 minute dropouts when using SMB. Most of them are using some kind of Windows to share their files. However, I am using a Open SUSE 11.0 server as a base of operations for my share. (My network also consists of an XP-installation).
I think i’ve tried all the tricks found in this forum but I cant get it to work.
It takes a few minutes after I boot the WD until it finds any share at all.
It gets stuck in some folders for like 30 seconds before it can read the contents.
After 2-10 minutes of any movie, it cant find my network anymore and I have to wait like 10-20 minutes before being able to access the shares again.
the SUSE-server acts Master Browser according to browstat.
its not always 3-4 minutes, it can be 20 seconds or 20 minutes.
the movies are streamed (using a standalone bridge) wireless.
ive tried different permissions on shares but since the WD plays the movies it cant be a permission problem?
Please, anyone using a linuxserver who might have some ideas of howto get this working?
