I currently have a Synology ds411 NAS hard drive with 4x2TB hard drives in RAID 10 (so 4tb usable) and I'm about to get a job which requires a lot of travel away from home. I connect to the NAS over dynDNS to a 25 Down/15 Up home connection using the WebDAV protocol (and NetDrive on the Win7 laptop I use).
I'm not quite getting the speeds I want out of this NAS for listening to music and browsing through folders on it, especially when I'm 3000 miles away.
I'm thinking of upgrading my home connection to 150 Down/65 Up (cost about an extra 80 a month which is high but acceptable if it works)
My question is will this upgrade actually be worth it in terms of getting the speeds I want out of the NAS? (Assume the network I connect to with my laptop is around 40/40).
If not, Is there a better alternative to WebDAV that will allow me to see my NAS as a network hard drive from anywhere?
