I have a 6TB Mirror My Cloud on my home network. I was having problems dropping connectivity so changed to Static IP based on WD recommendation. My docking station is ethernet connected to my home network. When running outside the dock station on wi-fi, my speed goes way down. Sometime when redocking it’s back to “normal”, other times about half way there, and other’s still just as slow as on wi-fi.
On advice of a friend, I’ve used CrystalDiskMark to measure speed. I’ll just provide one number for each attempt for the My Cloud.
One time after redocking, the number was 117.2
On wi-fi the number was 5.3
Another time after redocking, was 1.7
After reboot and next day got a 55.5
All over the map.
If there was a relatively quick command to reset the connection when redocking, I could live with that. But don’t want to reset each time, go back and reset Static IP is too much effort.
