The test function is very unreliable (only takes a second or so to run) an i would not believe the speeds it comes up with. even the pass or fail is usually a lie
The speeds you get when doing a backup/restore depend very much on the files sizes and the power of the device(s) - in your case the D-Link is probably very under powered compared to the 682.
I can definitely guarantee that the D-Link is very underpowered. It was my first unit for a home use, if I knew now what I knew then - I wouldn't have purchased it and looked at something else 5-6yrs ago.

I can't monitor the hardware on the D-Link which really ** because that would tell me where the fault lies. I was not able to pull any data from the 682 to the D-Link, that's how useless this NAS is, very bare bones and basic.

Also get yourself a switch (even a 1G) as the switches inside routers can be very low quality and might be reducing some of your through put
Right now I am in the middle of getting a trial firmware installed on my cable modem so I can put it into Bridge mode so I can use my brand spanking new D-Link 895L which I know has a decent switch capabilities but has been sitting as a doorstep until my ISP has rectified the issue of it not handing out IP's to D-Link and TP-Link networking devices.
