I don’t know if anyone can help out there: I’ve got a FreeNAS samba server running on a gigabit line. The WDTV is connected over wifi to a 5ghz wifi network (N). I can see the CIFS/Samba shares just fine, I can browse just fine… If I start a movie it’ll play fine for about a minute and then stutter… then play fine for a minute, then stutter, etc. I know samba is a little slow but I don’t have much of an option… my main problem is that network throughput seems to be around 15 Mbps (that’s bits not bytes)… while my windows machines seem to be able to do read/wrtes at 90+ Mbps.
Anybody out there with tips on Samba performance and WIFI? The Wifi signal seems clear, I don’t have the means to test a wired connection. USB dongle is a WUSB600N.
