Unusable Internet when saturating usb drive (6700v3)

So I've ran into an issue where if I'm connected to the router via ethernet and start a transfer to my hard drive plugged into the router ,my internet speeds on all my devices (both ethernet and wifi) slows to a crawl. I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a side effect of maxing out system resources on the router. I go from about 360 mb down to .3 when doing a scheduled backup.

Yes, you could be maxing out the router you may want to try using QOS so those other devices still have priority.
