Hello -- I just built a WHS 2011 using the guide from here at Maximum PC: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-tos/how-_build_windows_home_server_muscle_no_drive_extender
So far everything works great except for one issue. The problem I'm having is that whenever I copy files into my shared WHS folders it takes forever. It practically shuts down my home network in that I can't even surf the web as the file is copying. I can copy files from the server without any problems. It's when I am copying files to the server the issue arises.
One thing I did was setup the server with a static ip address via Windows. I've updated the Ethernet drivers from the Zotac website to the latest they have listed. I have a D-Link DIR-655 router. It's my first time using WHS 2011 and I was just wondering if anyone has ever seen this behavior before and what I need to do to correct it.
