I have the following set up and I can't quite figure out if there is a setting I am missing or if it is a hardware limitation that doesn't get me quicker xfer speeds for my nas:
- Linksys WRT54G v8.0 (latest stock firmware)
- TRENDnet TEG-S50G Gigabit Switch
- 3TB Buffalo NAS #LS-V3.0TL (says up to 76mb/sec speed)
- Acer Revo R3610 (4gb ram, 640gb 7200rpm drive, Win7 Ultimate 64bit)
The Linksys, Gigabit switch, NAS and Revo are all hooked up to the switch via CAT6 cables.
The Gigabit switch (has no configuration) and NAS support jumbo frame..and have also set the jumbo frame to the max 9,694k choice on the NAS. I also have an option in the Revo's nic for 'jumbo packet' which I can select from 1514 to 9014...that was also set to 9014k. The properties on the Revo's nic says I am hooked up at 1gps.
Copying from Revo to NAS and vice versa gets me about 25mb/sec speed. 1.5gb avi took about 1 minute. Pretty fast but no where near the 'up to 76mb/sec' speeds I could be getting...I'd be happy if I could get closer to that 76mb/sec speed.
Is it my Linksys router that is the limitation? The 1500 MTU max setting? I was reading up on the DD-WRT firmware but not sure if that would allow the 'jumbo frame' speed option/increase.
Is it the hard drive in the Revo?
Thanks for the help
