Hi folks. Everything else that is gigabit on my network gets around 75MB/s transfer speeds. Max I can get on this is 12.5MB/s. What’s the deal?
Check the thread on the following link, it might help.
So what you are saying is that it’s a proven fact it is just marketing and while it may be a GBit NIC I will never get anything close to GBit speeds…
Thats about it.
I upgraded my entire network to gigabit to improve streaming to the WDTV Live Hub… I guess the router, access points, switches and new wiring were all for nought.
What are you trying to stream ?
I have streamed High Bitrate 1080p with no problem, and the cost was a cable from my PC to the router off Amazon? and a cheap one at that.
Yeah I mean it’s fine for streaming. It’s just getting the data onto the internal drive…takes forever.
Ahh yes it is indeed.
I would have saved your money and filled it from another drive. Thats what I did, I still put the odd updated episode on there, but once its full you never want to do it again.
Use monoprice.com for ethernet (and many other) cables cheap.
What do I do to backup my hub? I’ve not filled it up yet, but I’m nervous I will lose some of my stuff. Can’t just copy back to a PC drive, because it’s slow as **bleep**.
Well just copy it from where you have it, then you have a backup.
If its something you are that worried about, thats the only option you have.
Hey dude, I can’t even get a slow speed trying to copy files back to pc. errors out every time. Looked for answers, got none. If I had known this, I would have just purchased the streaming version. Pathetic!!
