I have a qwest/centurylink actiontec q1000 modem/router combo that I run my network off for the last 2 year or so. My problems lie in wireless file transfers from my laptop (HP pavillion DV6700t) to my NAS (iomega storcenter ix2-dl with a single 3TB HDD) and as far as I know the router is setup properly for the NAS (port forwarding, trusted devices, ect). Currently about 260GB on it that I have slowly transfered over. Issue is when transfering from my laptop via wifi to the NAS which is directly connected to the router I keep losing connection and also the connection is slow for network transfer. Specifically the q1000 drops my laptop completely off the network during transfer. I can reconnect right away but it still messes up any file transfer in process and I have to restart it all over again. I have net limiter installed and it has helped improve stability even tho there are no limits set, but it still does not give perfect stability. Transfer speed is about 1-1.5MBpS uploading to the NAS, yet downloading or streaming anything from it is much faster and I also never loose connection. I've dealt with this issue for well over a year now and I'm fairly certain it is an issue with the q1000. Just looking for any suggestions or ideas on why I keep loosing connection transfering files over to the NAS.
Many Thanks for any help.
