My current setup is Wireless network in home with MAC Mini + 1 Windows 8 Laptop + 1 Macbook Air + 1 Windows 7 Laptop.
I’ve two HGST Deskstar NAS - 7200 RPM, 6Gb/s SATA Interface, 6TB.
I’ve configured it as RAID 1 in Dashboard to get maximum data security.
WD EX2 is connected directly to the router (Verizon FIOS) using ethernet cable that came along with the WD EX2.
Current firmware version of the WD EX2 is 1.05.30
While copying files from Mac mini to WD2 the RX/TX I’m seeing is 5MBP/0.25MBP, which is nowhere near the ehternet speed I was expecting from this thing.
All I need this thing is for databackup, I’ve no intention for using this to stream music to iTunes or anything like that.
Is there anything that can be done to speed things up before I return this thing ?
