Diabolically bad! hahahaha. Great!! I've spent a small fortune on this and it's diabolically bad!OK That's megabits per second (Mbps). That is diabolically bad. A Gigabit Ethernet connection is 1000 Mbps and 2.5GbE is 2500 Mbps. While 70 Mbps might be understandable if you're connecting over 2.4GHz Wi-Fi that doesn't explain why you said you were getting 100 Mbps over a wired Ethernet connection.
You still didn't answer my other question, "Is it exactly 100 or is it approximately 100?". If it's exactly 100 Mbps that could imply you have a cable fault and it's only operating at 100BASE-T.
No, the transfer rate moves up and down quite frequently and is not stuck on 100 Mbps. It tends to fluctuate between 30 - 80 Mbps.
I am clearly out of my depth here guys so I will explain how I'm transferring these MKV's so maybe you will have a better understanding of what is going on here.....
I am using my laptop which is on the 2.4Ghz band and is yet to be hardwired.
The MKV files are being ripped from a Blu-Ray drive which is connected to my laptop via USB.
I have created a shared drive in windows which mirrors the Shared drive in the NAS containing my BluRay rips for PLEX.
I am transferring the MKV file directly from the Blu-Ray reader to the shared Q: drive.
My NAS contains 4 x Toshiba N300 7200rpm NAS HDD's but I also have 2Tb of Read Cache and 2Tb of Read/Write Cache. (if this even makes a difference)?
Does this have anything to do with my WiFi?
I have tried transferring from the BluRay reader to a USB stick then transferring that to the NAS physically but found the transfer rates to be failry similar that I cut out the middle-man and transferred direct to the NAS instead.
This is the perfect case of "all the gear no idea" for sure!!
