Title: DNS-320L MAC performance
Post by: wesk66 on March 31, 2018, 10:26:15 AM
I have a DSL-320L connected to a network with both Windows and Mac machines present.  When I access through the Windows station, the performance is exceptional.  When connecting through the MAC, it's dismal.  I have more experience with PC's than I do with MAC.  I'd appraise the issue to be a behaviour where the MAC needs to cache a version of the file allocation table before any data can be read.  The primary reason for the DNS-320L is to act as a shared photo server. So, because the files are large by nature, getting to a point where the file can be viewed and dealt with is a time consuming burden.

On the PC, it's fast like a local drive.

What Mfr and model is the main host router?

If the MAC is seeing slower performance and the Windows PC isn't, we probably can presume there maybe an issue at the MAC HW or OSX level.
What versions of Windows and OSX are you using?
What is the model of the MAC PC?
