    WL-HDD disk transfer speed

    In another thread STYNO asked:
    >Any results on the speed tests yet? I'm curious about the r/w speeds when

    <snip>
    >The WL-500g reaches only about 600 KB/s which is not enough to stream
    >DIVX video for example.

    Please find below my experience.

    Using the program Filesync (www.fileware.com) to synchronise the 2.5"disk in my WL-HDD with the IDE connected 3.5"disk in my Athlon 3200+ desktop, Filesync reports the following:
    - with an 11Mbs wireless connection : appr. 475MBs
    - with an 100Mbs wired connection : appr. 1.1MBs

    When connecting my desktop to an external USB2.0 2.5" disk Filesync reports appr. 5MBs.

    I guess you mean 475 KiloByte/second over 11 Mega bit/second wireless connection and 1.1 MegaByte/second over wired connection. Thanks for the info.

    1.1 MB/s is not much

    It's terrible. JockyW also reported something like this.

    Hi,
    ..with the new firmware 1.1.2.8 I get a nearly constant r/w speed from the Windows Desktop ~1,6MB with the wired Network....not that much, but enough to stream. I think there is something fixed with the Samba-Server...give it a try!

    cu,

    Hi petgun,

    could you pls. post some more details about your setup?
    I.e. mount command/options, config of the wl-hdd, image on the dbox, etc.

    I just put 1.1.2.8 on my wl-hdd but as soon as I want to write somthing onto the hdd (i.e. cat > /mnt/movie/test) I'll get '-sh: cannot create /mnt/movie/test: Permission denied'.

    The funny thing is that dbox->'win2k'-pc works as well as 'linux'-pc->wl-hdd.
    I just can't find why the box won't play with my wl-hdd.

    Cheers,
    pepe

    hi,
    I get the same message if I try to write/read to the WL-HDD Share. From the Box I can mount the share, show the directory even delete a file, but no r/w operations. Please go to the Tuxbox-Forum and search for 'WL-HDD' and 'permission' and give a comment...maybe we'll get an answer. With WindowsXP everything works fine.

    cu,
    peter
