Hi, I'm hoping for some help with something odd.
I have a Vista 64x workstation since Nov 08 which has been fine until recently. It has started having network problems when accessing large numbers of files from remote locations.
I have a readyNAS network storage device with a number of shares which are mounted as network drives on the PC, wired ethernet. Vista is set up as a private network and set to trust the LAN. The readynas is flawless when accessed from other XP and Vista machines on the LAN.
Recent example, tried loading on photos from a camera, approx 700 files.
Went fast at first, but over 300 files, copying would slow to a crawl - 16Kb.
While this is happening, other LAN access and internet access becomes intermittent.
If I use picasa, which accesses all photos on the remote drive, it'll work for a while but then crawl, only in this case the whole machine slows down.
I've tried disabling auto-tuning but that made no difference.
LAN has a NAT firewall (Netgear FWG114P with latest firmware) and there is no software firewall running. PC: Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz, 8Gb 800MHZ RAM, Sapphire 512Mb Radeon HD 4670, Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit.
