I wonder whether the transfer rate I get from the NSLU2 is normal or not. It is very slow. I made several tests with two different disks and cases - Western Digital WD1200JB in a MaPower H31 3.5" case and a older Hitachi 2.5" disk in a Sarotech Cutie 2.5" case. I repeated the tests with different Ethernet switches, a Netgear FS108 and the built-in switch of a Linksys WRT-54GS, and from a PC and a Laptop. In any case writing a 700 MB file (a CD-ROM ISO-image) over the network took about 3 minutes. So the average transfer rate for large files was about 2.9 MByte/sec. I didn't experience the disconnects other people reported but that might be an issue of the used USB cables anyway (someone on the nslu2-linux group reported that changing the USB cable fixed the disconnect problems). Nevertheless 2.9 MByte/sec seems to be very slow? What transfer rates do you get? Thanks. PS: I'm using firmware r24 which was preinstalled.
