My System Specs

Default

This looks like a very old product (2009). Did you get this for free? If not, I would strongly suggest returning it. NAS's have come a long ways since then and there's surely better products available.

If you must keep it, have you done all the firmware updates? Sounds like you have to keep checking and checking to get them all installed.

Also are you subscribed to Netgear's service? Maybe that will give you additional features to tweak performance. Not sure really.

One other thing, are you running a bunch of services on the NAS like media servers and such? If so, try disabling those. I suspect it might not have enough CPU power or RAM to run that while offering decent file transfer speeds.
