Speed up Network in QNAP

For the longest time, I’ve have slow network to my NAS. I thought the problems were with Mac, (which in part hard been over the past) but after copying large amounts of data, I thought it was time to figure out what the problem and solution was.

So, without much more waffle, the solution for SMB / CIFS networking on a QNAP device is to set the SMB protocol to 2.1.

I went from 8 mega-bytes per second, back up to copying at 60Mb per second.
