Time Capsule file transfer SUPER SLOW

Do you have a gigabit capable ethernet cable plugged in? Have a look at the "Network Utility". It is located at /Applications/Utilities/Network Utility.app

Does it say: 1 GBit/s ?

If not, you should get yourself a better cable. Look at good cat.6 ethernet cable to be sure.

Oh and: yes the time capsule is not very fast...

Something is wrong with your TC. I purchased a TC today and I'm backing up both a Mini and a MBP and it looks like 10+ gigs per hour (per machine).

Oh sorry - one other thing.

MBP is connected via 5ghz wifi and Mini is via ethernet.

That would also be my guess. It is slow, but not that slow. Is it new? Bring it back then.
