Windows 7: Slow Transfer Speeds from my NAS

I bought CAT5e as I could not get any CAT6 .. seem to be getting speeds around 30MB/s even though connected at gigabit speed so something is still slowing the transfers down a bit.

I've noticed that some of those gigabit routers/switches geared for home use aren't as fast or reliable as business class equipment. If you are looking to replace the or add a switch, I like the Dell PowerConnect switches. You should be able to pick up a 26xx series switch off eBay cheap now (well, cheaper than new).

I managed to get some CAT6 network cables today. Although my NAS transfers are still only around the 30MB/s still I am now getting 100+MB/s between computers on the network. Obviously there is an issure transferring from the NAS.

At least you've gotten it narrowed it down. I'd see if there is a firmware update or if there are any settings for the NIC on that NAS. I checked on Newegg and the NIC is 1GB.


I just moved some stuff over to the server. Both my PC and the server have 1GB NICs and connected to a Dell PowerConnect 5224 switch. I was getting speed upwards of 84MB/sec.

Have you thought it might be related to the drive(s) inside the NAS being of a slower speed or the configuration the drives are in (RAID0, RAID5, JABOD)?

Could be the NAS is speed limited even though it has a gigabit port on it. My brother bought one of the cheap D-link or Netgear NAS boxes last year on sale for $50 and it does about 10MB/sec, and reading up on the unit, everyone's does about 10MB/s.
