Re: RPi 3B+ gigabit ethernet bad download speeds.

I have a suspicion I'm also having related network troubles on my 3B+. If I copy more than a few GB via SMB, the 3B+ network becomes unreliable and stops being able to copy files. Extremely frustrating. I did set flow control to on in my Netgear switch, and that meant that failures took longer to o...

Re: Samba share copy failures

Oh blast, as I wrote that it fell over again. Maybe it's not the solution. Grrrr. How I hate fault finding intermittent problems.

Re: Samba share copy failures

Ther seem to be problems with the new usb ethernet driver: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=208512 Thank you! I do believe this has fixed the problem. Setting flow control to on on both my NetGear ProSafe GS103 switches has corrected for whatever the driver problem is, if tha...

Re: Samba share copy failures

OK, more diagnosis discovered: I forgot to add that it has an ntfs 4TB Western Digital drive connected. It's not on a powered hub, and I don't ever recall any powering up problems with the drive/RPi. VNC also used to fail/freeze randomly, and would then continue working if I restarted the VNC client...

When I try to copy a series of larger files to my Windows 10 computer, the copy usually fails after a couple of GB has been copied. The error is "An unexpected error ...

Two new RPi3s

Afternoon all,

Just had tons of fun with my first RPi3, turning it into a Samba server, running OpenVPN and Transmission. The utter satisfaction of having Noobs seeding on there is awesome. :)

My second one is arriving tonight, and I can't wait to play some more.
