Hi,

I was wondering if someone could help me with this.

I recently purchased a D-Link DNS-321 and have been trying to transfer files to it. Ubuntu is showing that I am getting ~4.5MB/s MAX.

This NAS has a 10/100/1000 interface. I have a router and switch that are also 10/100/1000 (all D-Link). My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 with a 10/100/1000 NIC onboard.

I enabled Jumbo Frames on the switch and set the MTU to 9000. I also went into network tools and set the MTU on this computer to 9000. The computer and the DNS-321 are all wired through the router and switch using cat5e cables.

Is there anything else I can do to increase the throughput? I read on other forums that people get ~15MB/s, so I am not sure if it is an Ubuntu issue.
