R7000 Issues: USB 3.0 Speeds/Drive Edits

Hi. First off, I really like those router! The DLNA server is awesome (a quick solution until I build a home server). I am running the latest firmware (V1.0.2.120_1.0.17).

Yet, I am having an issue with a WD My Passport 1TB USB Powered, USB 3.0 drive.

When plugged into my PC, I get about 70mb/s transfers (I thought it would be faster than that).

When plugged into the USB 3.0 port on the router and setup as a network drive, I am only getting 36mb/s max write speeds. This seems like it is falling back to USB 2.0 speeds.


Also, when viewing the USB Options through the router's management page (directly into the router - not through the Genie), I am not able to 'edit' the drive. The page just reloads every time I click that option.

Also, if I want to setup write access protection, do I need to do that directly on the drive while it is plugged into the computer, or is that something that is done through this 'edit' option?


Thanks!

Upon connecting my WD my passport 1TB USB 3.0 HDD with the USB ports gives me just 3.93 mbps of transfer rate. I expected atleast 50mpbs+ of transfer rate. And for some strange reason transfer on USB2.0 feels faster than USB 3.0.

I copied a 637mb file from my laptop (wifi N) over wifi to and from the router. Following are the results:

From laptop to router time: 2 mins 35 secs
From router to laptop time: 1 min 35 secs.

Then tried with a 231 mb video file:

From laptop to router: ~3mins (strange :mad:)
