WNDR 3700 and FtP

hello again I have just bought a WNDR 3700 and gotten rid of my 3500. I have a external hard drive hooked up to my WNDR 3700 via usb and was wondering how I could increase its ftp capabilities in terms of me connecting to it outside of the network to upload files cause its very slow is there a certain way to configure it to maximize the most out of my connection of 10MBs?

The USB interface isn’t the quickest and people have different results depending on the device attached, some get acceptable rates and some get very poor rates. But for remote access to FTP you need to also consider your connection upload rate which is often a fraction (say 1/20th) of the download rate, and this can reduce throughput in both directions.

USB bandwidth in itself are great anyway so even you got fat pipe for broadband, it will sure to limit by the USB2.0 bandwidth

thanks for all the help i have another question though. Would a 5400 rpm drive as apposed to a 7200 rpm drive be slower drastically or slightly cause I have a 5400 rpm 500gig on right now but don't want to buy a 7200 rpm one if its not going to have significant improvement thanks

For a drive passing data through USB2.0 on the WNDR3700 I don't think you will see any difference.

huge difference the seek time / read/write + cache on the hard drive.

it will not move any faster than maximum of 480Mbs with USB2.0

Re: WNDR 3700 and FtP

Hi, recently purchased a WNDR 3700 and I am trying to setup the USB capabilities over the inernet (ftp and http). I connected a external HDD with its own power supply to the usb port. I can access my files on any network computer, but for some reason when I try to access the files over ftp or http with computers not connected to the network, it does not connect.
I am almost to the point of wondering if I cannot connect because there is a windows setting I need to change? or if there is a setting on the router GUI I need to change?

For example, I turned on my wireless connection on my smart phone, and was able to connect to the http usb drive while connected to the internet. I turned off the wireless on the phone (just using the 3G) and the usb files would not load using the same http address. Has anyone had this same problem?

first of all your router's internet port must have public IP (ISP released ip) , if not it will not work.

was able to connect to the http usb drive while connected to the internet.


You were connect on LAN side and likely used private IP to connect

I turned off the wireless on the phone (just using the 3G) and the usb files would not load using the same http address.


it did to work because you where you using private IP to connect with also NOT routable from the internet (WAN side)


see router setup on my sig below and check broadband and model setup.
