I recently bought the MyBookLIVE 3tb external drive… love the possibilities of having this being an easily accessible point of storage for all of my media over the next few years.
However, not exactly being a networking guru, I am wondering if there is anything I can do (tweaks, etc.) to ensure I am getting the best possible speed read/write out of this drive.
I am primarly using a Windows 7 x64 laptop with a Linksys WRT300N router. I am transferring files from various sources (Laptop internal Drive; Laptop CD/DVD drive; WDTV Live Hub; 500GB external USB 2.0 Hard Drive) to the MyBook. Dumping files to the MyBook (regardless of source) averages 4MBs-9MB/sec.
Is this about right?
