Hi all, I have an ASUS RTN-16 using 1.28.9054 MIPSR2-beta K26 USB vpn3.6 (which I have just re-flashed and cleared NVRAM). I haven't enable any other non-default features other than usb support and FTP server. I am using a WD 2TB USB external HDD, formatted to EXT3 and am trying to get FTP working correctly.
Right now, when I upload anything via filezilla (max 10 connections), upload will start fine at about 15MB/s for about 3 seconds, then it will pause for 2 seconds, then go down to around 8MB/s for 3 seconds, then pause for 2 seconds, then stays around 4MB/s (keeping that speed for about 3 seconds, pausing for 2 seconds, and repeat). However, when I download, I get a constant (non-pausing) transfer of about 12MB/s on average (note that it constantly changes between 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 MB/s, but it never pauses)
any thoughts on why this is occurring?
(EDIT: just some more info - I don't have any issues in transfer speed on the web or between two computers on the network, this is just an issue with FTP and the USB hard drive)
