Actually, poor performance isn’t quite accurate. It just doesn’t work.
I have a Drobo 5N with Plex installed on it. The Drobo has 4x 4TB drives, all very quick and brand new. I also have an SSD installed underneath for the “hot cache” feature. The Drobo then goes into my EE Brightbox 2 router via a lan cable. It is plugged in to the gigabit port, not the other megabit ones.
Here is a small diagram of my set up:
The Drobo works fine on the network at home. I have connected multiple devices to it and it streams just fine. It isn’t quick by any means, just fine. If I play a movie on a laptop when browsing the Drobo over wifi it works without any stuttering.
I have a Samsung Smart TV with the Plex app installed, I have tried using it wirelessly and with a lan cable going in to a megabit ethernet port and I can browse the Drobo but playing any file just times out.
Has anyone else experienced the same issue, presumably with EE routers being so slow?
