    Dear all,
    I have two questions.
    I am using Skynet, diversion, x3mrouting and VPNfailoverscript with my RT86U on an USB 2.0 Stick.
    Additionally I created a 2GB swap file on the stick.

    My questions are:
    Is USB 2.0 fast enough to use this amount of scripts and the swap file or should I use USB 3.0 better ? How do I know, that the speed of the USB stick is insufficient ?

    If so, just backup and restore the JFFS Partition or do I have to do something else to transfer the configuration to USB 3.0 ?

    Thanks a lot for your support.

    2.0 is enough and no troubles with 2.4G interferences, scripts are loaded to RAM and for loading them once there is no need to be some ms faster.
    Xentrk and thelonelycoder like this.
