Hi Mike,

I have no idea if this works but try the following:

open the AppleScript editor and enter "do shell script" sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack = 0 "with administrator privileges"
save this script in a folder of your choice and add it to the Mac OS startup items.

Maybe it will work.

I can only get a reasonable upload from my ReadyNAS Duo to my MacBook with snow leopard if I have previously given the command
sudo sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.delayed_ack = 0
in the terminal. However, it is a bit annoying to use the (?) Terminal every time. Is there a way to automate it so that the command is executed every time it goes up?

Thank you, Markus
