    Anyone with an Archer C5 and used the USB file share function?

    Ports are rated for USB2 but it appears that transfers across GB LAN to a USB3 drive are topping at circa 14MB/s write and 8MB/s read (opposite order to what I was expecting too). I should be seeing closer to 30-40MB/s. Does anyone have the same router (firmware is v1.2) and able to verify the same result?

    Cheers

    Smallnetbuilder got similar write speeds (but slightly faster read speeds) when they tested it:

    Thanks. Been browsing the official forums and it appears to be a comparable situation throughout their products. Poor programming for a feature that could only really be considered as a nice-to-have. As a print server and I suspect a low-end media server, such throughputs are fine. Anything more is unworkable.
