Isn't the difference (wired to wireless) that the wired connection has much less overhead vs. WiFi? Along with the relatively slow cpu (which USB heavily penalizes, it seems) the results are as expected.

Wired is full duplex (bi-directional) and uses a different (better) encoding scheme than 'N' wireless schemes; which is only half duplex and needs to check the airwaves before it can send anything to a client device.

It's pretty amazing that a firmware update can get us a 20% increase in wireless USB speeds from an older router.

And yes, the file system type does make a difference in the speeds achievable.

Are you running a full gigabyte lan architecture?

Thanks for the quick reply and details!

Yes I'm running a full gigabyte lan.
Perhaps I will format that drive as a ext4 and see how that affects lan transfer speeds. It's a 3TB Seagate drive (which according to Asus's site does in fact support 3TB drives - not just 2TB as the manual states)

Thanks

ext4 is only supported on the RT-AC56/rt-AC68U.

3TB support with Asus's stock firmware is hit-or-miss. Additional kernel patching was needed for instance with my NexStar CX + WD Caviar Green 3TB to work properly (the patch is applied to my custom firmware but not to the stock FW).
