So here’s my scenario:
iMac wifi to my Airport Extreme.
USB 2.0 HD connected directly to the USB port on my Airport Extreme.
Drobo FS Ethernet connected directly to a port on my Airport Extreme.
When I copy a file from my Drobo FS to my USB HD, it’s so slow - I’m guessing that the file needs to go wifi through my iMac, as the two drives are SMBs. Is there a way to do that kind of file copy FASTER?
I’d guess that since I’m using 802.11n, that the wifi wouldn’t cause it to go so slowly… 54Mbps, right?
A 9GB file takes about an hour to copy. Something seems wrong.
