i just purchased a 2tb mybook live
i upgraded the firmware to the latest… installed all the software and all that
when im home on the same network as the mbl it works great (as expected)
when im on the go on a different network… things change
i was at the hospital yesterday on their wifi. i pulled out my macbook air and went to wd2go.com to mount my mbl to my macbook air… it signed in and everything… but the folders were insanly slow to load… each folder took maybe 30-45 seconds… so i figured it was just the over populated wifi
just for laughs… i pulled out my ipad 2… connected to the SAME network as my macbook air… and opened the wd2go iOS app… it was SOOOO much faster… each folder took 3 - 5 seconds to load
so my point is.
is there something im missing? i love the speed i was getting on my ipad… i want that speed on my mac too… how do i get it?
if i cant get this speed on my mac… the concept of “personal cloud” is basically useless other than browsing pics on my ipad… i cant do any real document work on my ipad
