Hi all, I am using a Time Capsule 3TB with a 2011 MacBook Air 13", 1,8 GHz i7, 250 GB. When I first set the Time Capsule up I direct connected my Macbook to it using CAT 5 ethernet and an Apple Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter. I have tried the same with a CAT 6 cable, and also using a different port on the Time Capsule, and there are no improvements, The first Time machine backup took more than 24 hours!! - more like 36 in fact, did not time it exactly. This created a backup Sparsebundle file of around 150 GB. This seemed very excessive to me so I tried transferring some movie files direct from the Air to the Time Capsule - using the same Thunderbolt to Ethernet connection. 5.38 GB took close to one hour! The activity monitor gave the following: Data received - 51.9 KB/sec Data Sent - 1.93 MB/sec This is actually slower than my broadband connection :-( The same files transferred to a Drobo FS via the same network took only 3 min and 41 secs. Now the Drobo is not known for it's speed, but the difference here is huge. I had been hoping to store iTunes files and movies on the TimeCapsule and use them with Apple TV, but it seems to be too slow for that. Any suggestions? I must be doing something wrong?
