Networked USB external harddrives transfering files slow
5 months ago

I have a 500 GB harddrive on my laptop and it was getting full of pictures. So I decided to get a router with a USB connection and plug in external HDs to store my files on and even access them from LR or other indexing photo editing software.

The problem is that the transfer rates to move pictures from my computer to the networked drives are really slow. Slower than if I say downloaded them from the web. What gives.

Does anyone have a solution for this problem? or a good setup for this?

In my mind my computer and router are capable of faster speeds because downloading off the internet is faster. Surely a LAN would be faster.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
