I have a Macbook Pro and an old desktop Dell PC (running win Vista).
Both use two My Cloud devices (I use the second one as a backup of the first one + to store my Time machine backups).
All four devices are (wired) connected to my Netgear WNDR3700V3 router.
When I access My Cloud from my Vista PC it is much faster then accessing it from my Macbook…
On my Macbook, the My Cloud NAS is shown in the “shared” tab. However, when I click on it, it shows ‘connecting…’ and it can take up to 30 sec before actually showing the content of the disk.
The problem is not hardware related. When I switch the cables between my PC and Macbook, the Macbook is still slow, while the Vista PC is much faster…
Does anyone have an idea how I can make this faster ? Is there a setting in my OS X which can speed up this process ?
Also transfer speeds are slow. When I connect a USB2 HDD to my MacBook, files are saved much faster then when saving them on My Cloud via Ethernet.
Thanks for your help !
