      He's not running SlugOS. He is using Unslung maybe 6.10-beta if he has been updating which corresponds to Linksys V2.3R63 firmware. If I remember (which has been a while and I'm not good at it), I did have problems with large file transfers with that so I tried the Stock v2.3R76 (v2.3R73 was still messing up) under the files section of this group and was able to transfer an 80 Gb disk image file to an NTFS formatted drive that took over a day. Of course, the other possibilities are to install either some other firmware like Debian, SlugOS, or OpenWrt with Samba3 (Samba2 had issues). To get it all into firmware so that you can use non-ext drives on both ports, you could do a minimal install of OpenWrt with Samba. Or, add a hub with the other distro firmware on a USB stick.

I would suggest trying another transfer protocol to transfer files. The actual limit for FAT32 is 4GiB files, so you aren't hitting a file system limit. Some programs have bugs at the 2GiB limit because the used signed instead of unsigned integers to keep track of the position in file. I don't know of any limits that hit at 1GiB, but that is not to say they don't exist. Typically the code for a web-interface is the least tested, so that is where you are most likely to find a bug.
