PR2100 owner - Is there a way to do a faster backup via a direct connection to your Mac?

Doing the initial Time Machine backup from my MacBook Pro, about 1.5 TB worth. After 3 days it’s only 3/4 done. No detectable improvement when connected to the ethernet.

Is there a way to connect the two directly, either via ethernet or USB to do the first Time Machine? Otherwise, I’ll have to imprison the MacBook at home for 4 days. I can, but good grief.
