Model: Archer VR2800  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 0.7.0 0.9.1 v006c.0 Build 210313 Rel.74106n

Hi, 

 

I am having issues with write speeds to a USB drive connected to my Archer VR2800.

When trying to copy a large file/files from my PC with an M.2 SSD to my USB share drive (seagate backup drive 8tb USB 3.0) via Ethernet I get a max speed of 16-25MBps which isn't awful but I need it to be faster. I have done some stuff to test: 

 

Transfer large file from Laptop A Connected to Archer VR2800 via Ethernet to Seagate Drive connected to Archer VR2800 via USB 3.0 port - Gives a max speed of 25MBps

 

Transfer large file from Laptop A to Laptop B (Both Gbps capable & both using M.2 SSD drives) via Ethernet ports on router - gives me a speed of 100MBps 

 

Transfer large file from Laptop A to Seagate drive via USB 3.0 port - gives me a speed of 125MBps (this is the maximum I would expect to see via an Ethernet LAN transfer) 

 

Transfer Large file from Seagate Drive to USB 3.0 Pen drive both connected to the router via USB ports - gives a max speed of 25MBps

 

So from what I can tell, the issue is definitely with the router. Does anyone have any ideas on what the issue could be or whether I am being unrealistic in expecting higher transfer speeds with this hardware? 

 

Many thanks, 

 

Joe

@jslsmithyx 

Hi, could you please help me sort out the following details:

1. Transfer large file from Laptop A to Seagate drive via USB 3.0 port - gives me a speed of 125MBps (this is the maximum I would expect to see via an Ethernet LAN transfer)

--At this moment, I guess the Seagate driver is connected to the USB port of the laptop, not VR2800 anymore?

 

So the whole tests are based on:

Laptop A---wired to the VR2800 and SSD is connected to PC via M.2.

Laptop B---wired to the VR2800 and SSD is connected to PC via M.2.

Seagate backup drive 8tb—connected to VR2800 via USB 3.0

Pen driver-- connected to VR2800 via USB 3.0

 

The file transferring speed is:

From Laptop A to Laptop B----100MBps

From Seagate to Pen driver—25MBps

From Laptop A to Seagate ----25MBps

With Seagate connected to USB 3.0 port of laptop A, from Seagate to M.2 SSD---125MBps
