Slow copy from mycloud

Network setup ->

   WD My cloud 100Mbit ethernet to router

   XBMCbuntu pc 100Mbit ethernet to router

I can copy files quite happily at 5-7 MB/s to the drive but try to copy the same file from the drive to my pc i get 130-140KB/s.

Tried using Samba & NFS with nearly identical speeds.

This makes watching movies from the mycloud impossible due to constant buffering, any ideas on how to improve this ???

If you are on Windows try the suggestion here .

HTH

NOTE: Just noticed you are on Ubuntu… . I dont know Ubuntu but maybe you can find the flags in the driver?

After trying the same tests via wifi and getting a steady 3 - 3.5MB/s BOTH ways it does look like some settings to do with the ethernet card in my pc.

Will head on over to XBMCbuntu and Ubuntu forums and see what i can find out.

Thanks
