    Problem with the size of hardrive. MyCloudEX2Ultra

    Originally did you see two 4TB drives in Windows? Im guessing (and assuming since you didnt mention data loss) it was set as a mirror, so the 2x 4TB showed as one 4TB drive in Windows. You replaced the dead 4Tb with a 6TB and the WD is using only 4TB of the 6TB to mirror the other 4TB drive.

    Supermicro Megaraid 3108 degraded cant boot windows or bootable sticks(blue screen)? refs volume failing

    Of your boot drive is carved out of the raid 6, and that's having issues, probably best to wait for that to finish. That megaraid is built into the motherboard?

    So both USB wifi and PCIe wifi cards , both got limited at 40? What about your cell phone, sitting in the same spot as your PC...that also stuck at 40? If yes, Id lean into a router setting since wired from the router is full speed
