I have an ICY BOX 4220B NAS which is connected to a wireless N router which I access wirelessly via my Windows Vista laptop.
When I drag'n'drop files from my laptop to the NAS I am getting transfer speeds of between 200KB & 1MB/sec
But when I use an ftp client to access the NAS I am getting transfer speeds of anything up to 14MB/sec
Are these speeds normal for a Wireless N Network, and why is drag'n'drop up to 70x slower than FTP??
Is there anything I can change to improve my drag'n'drop transfer speeds?
With the speeds I'm currently getting the NAS is not much practical use if I have to FTP everything to and from it rather than using my much prefered drag'n'drop method
