Hi
I've searched but made no real progress ...
Am running Vista Home on a PC which is normally reasonably quick. It's on wireless through an Orange Livebox (UK). All software is up to date and nothing reports any probs when it scans the resident HD in the PC. Read speeds are dire - typically 256K and occasionally last night 1.5M. I know that read speeds will be affected by the nature of the files but such a variation makes no sense to me. The machine was nothing additional in either situation. I've tried a web search to no avail. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Do you mean when you are downloading files from the web or just transferring files to somewhere else?

Hi Megabite
It's just when I'm transferring files "internally". The unit hangs on the router so I assume it communicates directly.
Thanks.

Not sure what you mean "The unit hangs on the router".....shouldn't affect transferring files internally.

Have you tried the PC in Safe Mode tapping F8 on start-up and choosing Safe Mode and the transfer files internally

Sorry Megabite, I've expressed that badly. I meant that it's physically connected to it via USB. I've tried running in safe mode and there's no discernible difference. I can't understand how the same physical setup can vary so much in speed. Currently it's operating at 110K .....impossible. Thank you for looking:)

Yeah. the storage system is connected direct via USB ot my broadband router/modem. My PC is supposed to communicate with it wirelessly which it does, but painfully slowly. It'll be something stupid on my behalf as I understand it should bt capable of 5M+. The router is only "g" rated. TBH I'd happily settle for 1-2M.

So I'm still a bit confused...your transferring files threw the wireless connection?

Yes.
I normally access the web at around 6M (not great I know) but I can't understand why this more local transfer is so slow. The throttle is clearly not the router to PC wireless connection it must be a config issue. I'm unsure about "Jumbo Frames" as it's called, MTU etc and have tried to follow general stuff on the web to no obvious benefit.
