Network access to My Cloud extremely slow...
Posted on 2014-02-28
Just installed a 2TB My Cloud to share files, mostly PDFs, Word docs, etc., nothing like image files, media, etc., over a small office LAN.
Everybody's hooked up to a Netopia 3000 router (supplied by AT&T) & no one is accessing it over wireless.
Copied some files to it & was shocked to find them taking 30 seconds (or more) to open!
I assigned the device a static IP address & added an entry to the PC's hosts file, thinking that may speed it up & the first file I opened took about 4 seconds, but I'm now back to extrememly long (at least in computer time) times to open files.
My Cloud does have latest firmware, too.
What could be causing this & how can I speed it up?
