How much data transfer speed should I expect from Netgear r6400v2 using SSD on usb 3.0 ?

Router - R6400v2

SSD - Samsung T5 500GB

Cable - Cat 6

 

How much speed should I get while transferring from PC to SSD via Ethernet?

 

This is what I get on LAN Speed test, (attached photo)

 

On actual movie file transfer test also, I get maximum 24MB/s only.

 

Is this a limitation of the router?

 

 

Model: R6400|AC1750 Smart WiFi Router

Is this because the actual router capacity is limited?

Or is it a firmware limitation?



It tends to be a hardware limit. When you start needing faster speeds, you need the hardware designed to run it and not a router with the included funcationality.

a lot depends on file type/size/format. But you're speed look roughly in line with what smallnetbuilder got when testing usb speeds.

If you're needing faster speeds, its better to actually invest in an actual NAS device or server.
