Hi Dave and Luke,
thank you for the advise,
Strange Luke your unable to make a simple LAN
test and keep referring to WAN, which is not anything I am interested in at this point in time.
So thank you for making a test using WAN. (Did I perhaps miss read your information ?)
Here is some more information which may help or interest others re LAN.
LAN TESTING https://support.netanalyzer.techet.net/ ... eed-tester
I made a test using Black magic disc speed test app (free)
It read, writes for you.
I tested SSD on the lap top here, wow its fast.
Next tested LAN on WD over wifi, 6hrs 45 later, testing 1 Gig and the Black magic was not working, or rather it was still testing the WD.
Time to quite and take the advise of the I.T person trust and use.
So as I mentioned before I will make a personal test of transferring say a 1 gig file to and from ----
1. Ipad Pro (4 gigs RAM)
2. LAN only
3. Synology box with SSD
4. Other kit I list later as the I.T person quoted a whole list of items of which meant not a lot to myself.
Once done I post a video here of the actual event with some real time how long to transfer using only LAN.
I also use the LumaFusion interface and scroll through video files see how it looks and works.
PS Dave which little island are you on ? sounds idilic to me
