Ok, now I’m getting 3-5 mb/s in some situations, but not others. And I’m not seeing a pattern, either. I’ve been testing by dragging & dropping large files (avis, mp4s, etc.) from my iMac to my Drobo and from my Drobo to my iMac. The former seems to transfer pretty quickly regardless of whether I’m using my router; whereas, the latter sometimes (not always) transfers quickly when my Drobo is connected directly to my iMac, but always slows to a crawl when my Drobo is using my router. I have no idea what’s going on here…[hr]
Oh, and I should have mentioned that I’m getting very fast transfers from my iMac to my PC (and PC to iMac), which are connected through my router. If it was a router problem, I would expect these transfers to be slow as well, right? It makes me wonder if the problem is the network protocol. Everything seems to go smoothly when SMB is being used (e.g., iMac -> PC, or PC -> Drobo), but when AFP is used (iMac -> Drobo) things get patchy. Is it possible that there’s some sort of conflict between my router and AFP?
