So I got a Seagate NAS a while back and I've been curious as to why the transfer speeds are not all that great.
I have tested it with two devices and this is what the network looks like (each line representing a connection to the NAS): Laptop (b/g/n) ---(wireless g)---> Router (Mode: b/g) ---(CAT5e)---> NAS Desktop ---(CAT 4)---> Router (Mode: b/g) ---(CAT 5e)---> NAS
Laptop transfers between 1.5 and 2.5 MB/s and the Desktop transfers between 2 MB/s and 11 MB/s. I tried switching the router to just use g as well as disconnect the device using CAT 4 and it made no difference.
Anyone know what the weakest link may be? At this point, I feel like it might be the NAS.
