Just an explanation needed really as I understand there is no cure
I have 2 PCs one with XP Pro, one with XP Home networked via an ORIGO Router.
I recently bought (very cheap) a Maxtor Shared Storage Plus 320 gb NAS box for backups and storage. It works very well except for the fact that it is slow...............
If I transfer a file between PCs the utilisation is up around 60 - 70% but between a PC and the NAS box its down to 25 - 30%
There are no errors to speak of and I've tried swapping ports etc.
The NAS box is Linux I believe and there is an open version of the software Here but my knowledge of that operating system is nil.
Where or what is the bottleneck?
