I have very slow CIFS/SMB transfer from my Debian Linux server to the WD TV Live.
The problem appears when I try to play 1080p video, e.g. a 11 GB file - then the video starts to stutter. If first seems to buffer a bit, then it plays nice for some 5 seconds, then it stutters for the rest of the time. It seems obvious that it is too slow network. Looking at the disk access on my server, it seems to be about ~ 600 kBps being read from it.
HOWEVER, when I copy this file from the Debian Linux server to my Ubuntu Karmic client, I get a stable 5.5 MBps.
Both my Ubuntu box, and the WD TV Live, is connected to the same router.
Something is wrong on the WD TV Live side. Is it possible that the WD TV Live has gone into 10 Mbps instead of 100 Mbps? - that would explain the tenfold drop in speed between the two. How could I check that?
Are there other threads or whatnots with solutions to this?
