    I've noticed that when I try to do a rsync from my Mac to my NAS, it runs serious slow upload speeds. On my files that are 20 MB+, it runs very slow. But when I disable my Wi-Fi and connect through an Ethernet cable, the upload speed is great. Is the problem with the Wi-Fi? If not, what should I do?
