DNS-320L MAC performance
« 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 Hardware version is your DNS? Look at the sticker behind or under the device.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DNSs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

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?
