Just joined this fantastic looking forum hoping you wonderful people would have an answer to my problem.
I have recently bought a 3TB Seagate Central NAS drive. I have plugged it into the Gigabit port (have tried the 10/100 ports too) on my BT Homehub 4 router. All my devices can see it, so I was happy with it.
I noticed my main everyday PC (HP Pavilion TS 15 notebook) was writing files to the drive a bit slower than I expected (around 4.5MB/s) (over wifi).
I thought this was normal, until I came across reviews of the drive; and my feelings were confirmed when I saved files onto the drive from my nettop (Acer Revo RL80; Windows 7) which was achieving speeds 3 times as fast!? (also over wifi, and same distance from the router).
I have updated all the windows and HP drivers on my laptop, which has made no difference.
I look forward to hearing your ideas/advice on how I can fix this issue (if possible).
Thanking you all in advance.
