    Anyone having issues with the wired connection on their TC?
    I bought a new 2TB Time Capsule.
    Wireless speeds are great, and signal strength is a big improvement over my Netgear WNDR4000.
    Wierd part is the wired connection seems to have significant lag. I have an IPad connected and my Mac mini server and pages that load in a second on the IPad take up to 30 secs on the mac mini. Switching to wireless on the mac mini provides equivalent speeds to the IPad. Made two calls to AppleCare and replaced the 1st TC at the store. Power downs, resets, reboots etc did not help.
    The new one seems better, however adding a 1GB switch into the mix seems to still cause problems.

    Could it be the ethernet cable you're using to connect the TC to your Mini?

    I would try a fresh cable. If that is still slow, then try to plug a different Ethernet client into the Time Capsule. I have no issues here on any of the networks I manage.

    Mine seems pretty speedy. I have file sharing enabled on my Mini with a fast external drive, and the Blackmagic Disk test on my MBA reports about 90MB/s write and over 100MB/s read with ethernet. My cables are new cat 5e and cat 6.
