NAS over Wi-fi
Hi, I'm trying to understand a bit what is my achievable best performance using a Synology NAS connected to Gigabit, but used over Wi-fi.
I'm hoping to be able to do something like 50mb/s read/writes from my macbook.
So, from a bit of research it seems hard drives can do usually 50-150mb/s, so that's not the problem. The Synology 212j NAS also shows performance data around 50mb/s.
I currently have the e4200v2 router. From the tests on this website, it says that LAN to WAN is 234.5mbps which is about 30mb/s. That seems to be the limiting factor. Or am I interpreting this number wrong?
Also, why is it that older routers have much better LAN/WAN performance?
Anyone have recommendations on router/NAS combinations for this sort of setup?
Note: I can write to my drive at ~25mb/s, which seems like the limit for USB 2.0. However, when the USB is connected to me e4200v2 router, the USB only does 10mb/s..
