I don't know why this problem was never addressed. I've had a Maestro for 2 years and I experience the same issue. You would think that with a direct connection to SSDR and the same cable to Maestro would produce the same results, not the case. I guess we are not software engineers.

Are you using a Maestro "B" version?  I was hoping this issue would be fixed in the new Version of Maestro.

I suspect the issue is due to the timing of the Ethernet interface port speed and duplex autonegotiation. If this happens, usually immediately rebooting the Maestro will allow both ends to set the same parameters and the network throughput will be improved.
