My wife and I upgraded to Nougat on our S7 Edge and streaming from our NAS device using SMB/CIFS access is REALLY slow (2-300kBps). When I try to transfer same file from same NAS server using FTP, it goes to 9MBps.
All other network access (speed test/http/FTP/etc) are all normal speed, only SMB/CIFS access. (I tried using ES file explorer as well as Total commander to the same issue)
I was searching and found on XDA that users of Note 7 (First Samsung phone to get Nougat) also had that issue, but discussion died out without resolution due to the recall.
Can someone/test confirm this issue? Maybe bug report is in order with Samsung?
This is a tough one! I am not really too sure what could be causing this as this is something we don't see very much as the carrier. I apologize that you have not received a reply here in our community yet. You may have better luck posting this question in the Samsung community or the forums for your specific NAS device.
