I was downloading my content onto the nas, when I came on the community from the http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X4arut-c7o (WD My Book Live - Speed & Performance) and wanted to see if someone clearly answer this question. I looked on the forum for a sticky post, expecting this would be asked so often that there was a clear extra tutorial to get near if not exceed the amazing (100mb/s) that would compete with “the enterprise class storage drives that you would find”. No sticky post, so I went and did a search of speed and found 13 pages of results. I went from page 1 to page 13, reading some suspiring finds (the search results and how it scans based on the coding is a different post) but none the less I took all the ADVICE that was told, and here were the results. Before I was running from a 2.0 usb external drive trying to since to my wd live, peaking at 3.1-3.2mb/s (avg. 2 mb/s) and after going straight from my hard drive via ethernet connection I noticed a peak of 11-12mb/s on ethernet connection. I thought should my internet speed should not be a factor, but I want to have the maximum download speeds I can get, so do you think internet would be a factor in a hardwire link from pc to modem. 2 would a 1gb modem attached to a primary (non 1gb transfer modem) affect the download speeds if the live and the pc are connected through the 1gb/s modem? Lastly 3, can you ask the people who got the 100mb/s during their testing what they would recommend to at least get above the 25mb/s? Thank you in advance,
Hello and welcome, the transfer speed you will get depend on several factors. You might want to check the following link for some suggestions.
