Okay, so I had some router issues when trying to move a lot of stuff to my new FreeNAS server a few days ago. I'd like to find a way to prevent overloading my router in the future. Here's what I have:
1) An Acer EasyStore with the latest version of FreeNas loaded on it. This is connected to a ...
2)A Linksys E4200 Router. On that router I have ...
3) Various wired and wireless computers.
I get about 40MBps on file transfers, which I guess isn't blazingly fast, but it'll do. I don't mind a slower file transfer if it means everything will be stable when I'm trying to transfer.
The problem with that is, I have no idea how to throttle the bandwidth speed on either my FreeNAS server ( can't find any way to do it ), or to and from my router only for the IP of the server.
What's a good way to deal with large file transfers to a home server without overloading the router (which other people at any time may or may not be using?)
