When I move files to and from my NAS my internet cuts out. is it because there is to much traffic?

Possibly.
What type of modem router do you have?
Are you using a wireless (b? g? n?), or wired connection?

I'm using a 2wire router that telecom supplies for there business broadband plan users. I use wired and wireless g

2 desktops are wired and i have multiple devices connected on wireless

I've only dealt briefly with the telecom 2wire business routers, but from various accounts around geekzone, they don't seem too bad.

Is there a firmware update for both the NAS or Router that you could apply?

This is just a guess, but perhaps there is an IP conflict?

When the file transfers begin, does the DSL and/or Internet light on the 2wire turn off, or do they stay on, but you still can't access internet?

Does the internet only stop working when the files are being transferred, or does it take a while after the file transfers stop for the internet to come back on?

How is the NAS connected? Wireless or wired?

I'd take a stab and say the issue yould be you simply saturating your wireless connection trying to copy large amounts of data which simply means every device connected wirelessly grinds to a halt.

There is a new firmware update for the NAS but its only for FTP bug I'm not to sure about the router its never had a firmware update and I dont know where to get the updates from.

The internet light and dsl light stays on when I'm transferring files but still cant access the internet also my wireless devices wont pick up the router when i start to transfer thing to and from the NAS.

Only stop when I'm transferring files and once it stops the internet comes straight back on





Also i dont think its an ip conflict ive looked on the routers device list and no IP's appear to be the same

My NAS is connected directly with a ethernet cable and I'm transferring files from a wired desktop aswell

NzReborn: I'm not to sure about the router its never had a firmware update and I dont know where to get the updates from.

Actually, I'm pretty sure telecom updates the router/modem firmwares from their end automatically.

The computers that are connected via a wired connection, do they also have wireless connected at the same time? I think in some cases if both wired and wireless connections are available at the same time the computer will utilize both to increase throughput. Can anyone else confirm/deny that that is sometimes the case?

It does indeed sound like a saturation issue.
Maybe you could enable the QoS settings on the router to prioritize Internet traffic.
I'm not entirely sure how that is done, but I would imagine it should be possible.

Perhaps someone with more QoS experience can chime in to expand on the possibility?

My main desktop (the one I've been transferring file to and from) also has a wireless adapter plugged in I'll try unplugging it and see how it goes and I'll also try and find a QoS setting on my routers homepage

Ok so i took off the wireless adapter and tried transferring some stuff again.

When the transfer started I lost internet connection then 2seconds after i regained it (this is on the windows 7 internet icon) but I'm still unable to surf the web but my skype seemed to be fine was still able to chat with friends via IM once I stopped the transfer internet started running as per normal




edit: ok im transferring files atm and im still in a skype call but still cant surf the net

I have pretty much the same problem while transferring between computers within my house, Planning on replacing my current setup with something a bit better in future when I have the money to spare.

It is unlikely your actual connection speed would have anything to do with it, More along the lines of your Modem being over exerted while switching the internal traffic.

You can get a 5 port gigabit switch for $40-50, then run a cable from the modem/router to the switch and connect your NAS and computers to the switch
http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=254585 

A LAN to LAN file transfer will only be between the two switch ports and two machines involved and not touch the modem/router in this case ^ may resolve your problem or at least will rule out the modem/router as the problem.
