I suggest that you check the Ximeta website for the latest drivers. If you have the latest drivers it might be your router.
I have not setup any file sharing on my PC or N35. All of my file transfers are via NDAS.
Based on your reply, i did some testing with interesting results.
I tried different switches with no difference in performance.
I installed the NDAS drivers on my linux box and wow, 9-10 MB/s to my Ximeta Netdisk and 3-4 MB/sec to the Mediashare.
On windows (XP SP2, Shuttle box and dell laptop), I get maybe 1 MB/s to the netdisk and 350 KB/sec to the Mediashare. All devices are connect via wire to the same switch.
So NDAS does perform but for some reason , my windows boxes are not performing well with NDAS.
I also noticed that transfers to the Mediashare ( via NDAS / ethernet ) slow down when it busy playing video.
