Slow or Indirect Connection to Plex

I have viewed media on my WD MyCloud EX4100 through Plex for over a year now. Recently I switched to cable and a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900, and all is good speed-wise except for Plex. Now I can only make a prohibitively slow “indirect connection.” It now takes tens of seconds to load a library and watching it impossible.
