      I'm having the same problem. I'm copying over my mp3 files from a USB
      drive plugged into the Linkstation's rear USB port. So far I have been
      copying for about 3 days! I'm not sure of the throughput speed, but it
      is extremely slow.

      Any idea why it should be so slow when there is a physical connection
      between the 2 devices?

      Cheers,

      Jack.

          Try running two different treads at the same time.
          Like two copies of different data from the same XP machine.
          Mine goes from very slow to very fast. ~7Mb with two threads.
          When the two treads drops back to 1 the data rate goes back to almost
          nothing. Seems like a IP lookup problem to me but have not fixed it yet.

            We had some network performance discussion on the Wiki
            http://linkstationwiki.org/forum/index.php?action=vthread&forum=4&topic=131

            I experienced periodic drops in performance when setting my LS to
            static IP. When I use dhcp (from my router), it never happens. So I
            stayed with dhcp.

              To answer the earlier question - yes, it's a new USB2 device. I have
              the Linkstation set to a static address - I'll try it using DHCP and
              see if it improves the situation.

              Thanks,

              Jack.

                Jack,

                Did switching to DHCP make any difference for you? I am happy with
                my LS with the exception of the horrible transfer rates. Took me 22
                hours to transfer 23gb of date at 100-based T. That's far worse than
                10-based T.

                Anyone else have any success tweaking the performance of this thing?

                Jeremy
