AirLink ANAS350 NAS peformance problem
Posted on 2009-07-02
I have an AirLink ANAS350 NAS device. It seems like a nice piece of equipment, but when I copy data to it over my wired, 100Mbps LAN, I get a paltry 4 Mbps data transfer rate. I bought a new Seagate 1.5 TB 7200 RPM SATA drive along with the device, so that isn't the problem. If I install the drive directly in my computer, my transfer rate is a couple of orders of magnitude higher. While I'd expect a large improvement since the transfer is all on the internal bus rather than over a LAN, 4Mbps is painfully slow.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Perhaps my expectations are too high?
