    I have an Airport Extreme (in the title I said "Airport Express", which is incorrect) with a 1 TB drive (Fantom GreenDrive) attached via USB.

    I'm trying to copy a bunch of files to it with a Windows Vista computer with a D-Link wireless N dual-band adapter (connected to the 5GHZ channel, which I configured to act solely as wireless N 5 GHZ), but the transfer is only taking place at 1.3 MB/sec.

    I'd expect more in the 8-9 MB/sec range for my new router given other benchmarks I've seen. What could be going on?

    U will find on a few threads on here that transferring speeds between a USB hard drive attached to the extreme or TC are a bit slow. Even slower if your going thru wireless.
