    I have a 1Tb NAS installed at home. It has an FTP facility. I have recently moved from Virgin Media's 20Mb broadband to the 50Mb broadband, so I have a new router and modem. The Router is a D-Link DIR-615.

    I am able to connect to my NAS via FTP from work (which has an industrial ultra high speed internet(95Mbps d/l and 65Mbps Upload on a speed check), but when I try and download stuff, my download rate is less than 10kbps. (ETA for a 700Mb file is 28 hours!)

    What gives? Surely with a 50Mb connection at one end and a fast connection at the other I should be getting a reasonable download rate?

    I'm wishing I didn't chuck my old Netgear router out as I had no problems with that.

    Could Virgin be throttling your connection because they don't really want you to run FTP servers? Have you tried configuring something like FileZilla server on your computer and connecting to that from work? This will eliminate the NAS as the issue? Did you try to FTP locally from the NAS to a computer on the same router to see if FTP works normally that way?

    What's the make and model of the NAS?
