New Around Here
I haven't seen this anywhere in the most current firmware, but it would be really cool to be able to have the router run a read/write benchmark to the attached storage. I am getting horrible transfer speeds on an RT-AC3100 with the most current firmware. It's an SSD attached with a SATA-III to USB-3 adapter. The SSD gets around 250 MBs/sec read/write when attached to a PC. I am getting around 30MBs from my PC directly connected to Ethernet Port#1 on the router. The only other option I can think of to help this would be to attach a NAS to the router and share the drive(s) from there. I would have hoped the SSD connected directly to the router would have much better throughput. It's a 1 TB SSD drive, formatted as NTFS, shared through Samba. SMB bottlenecking is an issue, but there are only 3 options for formatting the drive. FAT, NTFS, and HFS. I don't know if FAT is true FAT, or is it FAT16, FAT32, etc... Since it's a 1 TB, I chose NTFS.
