Hey I just got my MyBook Live and I’m new to NAS technology, I know some about computers but little about networking.
My problem is when I copy a file to the drive via wifi from my desktop it transfers at ~500kbps which is obviously horrible. When I plug my PC up with a direct connection to the router I can copy at ~11MBps which I’m ok with but I really need to be able to load via wifi.
Some info that may or may not aid in the diagnostic:
Router is a 2wire 2701HG-B (This is a 802.11g - Do I need an N for decent speed?)
My NIC does support N and it is enabled
The issues exists the exact same on my Laptop
I will edit this post as I attempt to figure it out - but for now I have to get some work done.
I’ll get an email when a reply is posted and will most likely reply within 10 minutes if I am available.
Thanks for any help you may provide!
*EDIT - I’m also having a horrible time attempting to get my xbox 360 to see the Twonky Media Server. The server shows the xbox as a device but when I go into the 360 it doesn’t show the NAS as an option to serve media… Does anyone have a good step by step guide for this? There are just too many variables to figure it out (password or no password what folders to point to what media type to select do I need more software on my pc etc etc). I verifyed that the files can be downloaded to another computer from the server.
