  1. So quick update, after leaving the settings, I'm getting consistent 380MB/s for the first 2gb or so of transfer before it drops. Still not quite sure what to try next. Smb is clearly working, so where is the throttling occurring?
  2. Have tried a number of 'make your network faster' sites, most were a complete flop, unsurprisingly, not as a criticisim but I accept each issue is likely to be unique. I had a quick thought, as a test, to try an internal SSD-SSD transfer, and after an initial transfer speed peak of over 1GB/s, I dropped to a consistent 400-420MB/s - could this be a processor/SSD issue, not a hardware one?
  3. Hi, thanks for the reply. So both cards support interrupt moderation, I disabled on all 4 connections, and still no luck - initial peak at 350MB/s then a drop to sub 200MB/s.
  4. Thank you both for the replies. Checking the disks being written from and to, both are barely going over 10% usage, so do you think the RAM disk is necessary. I put an SSD in my server to ask as a cache for transfers, but AMD's software is worse than temporamental and wouldn't install, so I'll use it as a manual cache if needed. I also tried FastCopy and TeraCopy and both struggled with transfer speeds above 200MB/s. I tried adjusting settings, but neither would go higher. Interestingly, the CPU's were still maxed out on with these speeds. Not sure what is happening her
  5. Hi everyone. So I'm trying to get a 'simple' file transfer in place between my main PC and a Server PC. Both are running Windows 10, main PC has a 3900X, 32GB Ram, 1 x 1Gbps on board and a separate PCI-e with 2 x 2.5Gbps connections. Server PC has the same network setup, with a Ryzen 3600 and 32GB Ram. I have the two PC's connected directly to each other via the two 2.5Gbps connections, each has it's own IP, and I read not to assign a gateway or DNS to this (contrary to Level1's advice on this, though I found it made no difference to transfer speeds). Both NIC's are RSS
  6. Hi, thanks for the reply. Yes there is clear line of sight - I watched a few YouTube vids about these products (including Linus's recent one with the satellite dish ones) so there is clear line of sight. There is also power at the gate, so possibity to put a switch there. The Nanostation is PoE anyway, as is the camera so a PoE switch may make sense rather than separate PoE adapters, but then the question still is, if the Nanostation is connected directly to the home network and not directly to the DVR as the camera should be, is there a way with the Ubiquiti gear to make a 'passth
  7. Hi All, I hope I can get some guidance on this. I'm setting up a Reolink NVR system for my father. He already has a Ubiquiti powered network with company AP's. He has an entrance gate that is some distance from the house, and wants to put a secuirty camera on it from the NVR kit. There is no way to run a cable to the gate, so I have purchased two Ubiquiti Nanostation Loco AC's to act as a ptp connection. I am assuming I can connect the camera into one end (at the gate) and the other end into the NVR and it should work. If that is so, then that is good. However, I also wante
  8. Hi All, I have a Reolink 410W which I used to have saving video to a USB drive attached to an Asus AX92U. Everything worked great, easy enough to set up. Sadly that router broke so I decided to go with a Netgear Nighthawk RAX12. For the life of me I cannot get the FTP to work, whether using the network address or the internet address/settings from the Readyshare section on the router. I have even been in communication with Reolink (who have been very helpful), and even they are stumped. I've opened the correct ports on the modem (which is why it worked on the Asus one), so I'm just
  9. Hi, thank you for your replies. This is the system - https://reolink.com/product/rlk16-410b8/ Do you have a recommendation for a good poe? I presume it will need to be a 5 port one either end (so 4x switches) for this to work? I suppose I thought the theory would be possible, but wasn't sure how best to achieve it even researching it. Thanks again for your help!
  10. Hi all. My father has a pretty wide house and has purchased an 8 camera (poe) surveillance system. The nvr box will sit centrally with four cameras on the one side of the house and four on the other. It's going to be difficult to wire in, and would be much easier if we could group each side of the house into four cameras joining then by a single cable to the nvr. However the nvr has a connection for each camera, so I fear joining four of the cameras into a single hub would ruin the signal from each camera. Is there a way to achieve a 4-1-4 connection so as to save the need to wire
  11. That was my other thought, and probably what I'll end up doing. Might even offer a festive biscuit as a persuasive measure! On the cable, do you recommend Cat6 over 5e? I'm adding a third Asus AX92U, which can use ethernet backhaul instead of the AX channel, just wondering if I should do this?
  12. I agree it's annoying, but I've tried it twice and Sky boxes wouldn't work and the (Asus AX92U's) routers I had on the main network kept dropping the internet connection. It's a bit of a strange setup, but I've got the Sky Router on the broadband in, with one network set up from that for the Sky TV and mini-boxes. Then I have a cable to the WAN port on the Asus routers, creating a second network for all my other devices. I have a few smart devices round the house, and the Sky equipment couldn't cope with them (even Sky agreed this to be the case and recommended better routers). But the signal
  13. Hi, I have two separate networks in my house, one for my TV Satellite set-up, and one for the 'rest' of the house. Signal strength from one side of the house ot the other is weak on either network (running different channels etc), reducing it down to a single network makes no difference but does create problems for the TV setup, which prefers it's own network. I have a single Cat5e cable running from one side of the house to the other, I was wondering if there was any way I could use this for both networks at the same time, but keeping both networks separate. I doubt e
  14. Thanks Caennanu, appreciate the input there. The other case is the Obsidian 1000D, but at almost £500, that's a serious investment. I really enjoy PC building, and have tried to get into the software side, virtual machines, server setups etc, but it's the hardware side that interests me more. Sadly this is the more expensive side too. A dual system seemed the natural progression with my two systems, maybe it's not the most sensible idea, but that's what I fancied doing.
