Well - either enjoy the comfort of a wireless connection _or_ performance. Start with wired Gigaabit Ethernet...aahonari wrote:I get roughly an abysmal ~30Mbs right now (wireless).
The WRT-610N does supports the highest performing WiFi-standard (802.11n) so the bottlenecks that you see is in your environment (thick walls or busy RF) or in the clients being too slow (bad antennas or other hardware limitations).aahonari wrote:...I think there are more advanced wireless routers that can perform better than 30mbs, no?
Only in marketing, not in the real world.aahonari wrote:So, is my understanding from your suggestions correct that a N wireless router will not deliver even 200mbps actual throughput...
That's pre-standard equipment that requires specific client support to be any faster. As far as I know that support isn't available in your clients....when some are being advertised to perfom at 300/450 + 450 (i.e. Linksys e4200 or ea4500) ?
Most likely only the wireless parts of your network.Or is it just my network facing bottleneck issues?
I don't even have any n-equipment so I wouldn't know exactly what can be expected but my gut feeling says you won't get as high as that.aahonari wrote:[assuming that I could reach 50% of the max data rate in reality, I still should get ~16MB/s actual throughput and not 3.5, no?]
Make sure everything connects at gigabit speed. We can see that the Qnap does but do all the other links? Usually there are LEDs next to the LAN ports on network equipment that in some way (read the manual) indicate the speed.aahonari wrote:Both the TP-Link switch and the Linksys router support gigabit ethernet. A CAT5E cable goes directly from my QNAP to to the one of the 4-ports of the wireless router. Earlier, when I tested the transfer rate wired, I connected my cable via a CAT5E+ to the switch and not the router. So MBP -->Switch -->Router--->QNAP
Well it's not that bad but you shouldn't have any errors at all. Try with a new cable to the Qnap and it would also be interesting to see what happens if you could bypass the router and connect both the Qnap and the client in question to the switch.Any error packets reported at the System Status, System Information page? Yes. I've attached a screenshot.
