    I know there have been many posts on this in the past but I think I am getting even slower speeds than most who have complained.

    My TC is backing up at a rate of about 1 Gig per 45 min to an hour. I have plugged in an ethernet cable and set ethernet above wireless in my network hierarchy but it appears that this is not working.

    This is my initial backup so I don't want to risk it by turning off my airport if it is transferring using wireless.

    Shouldn't the ethernet connection go much faster even though my Time Capsule is not plugged into our modem?

    Time Machine is your limitation. It backs up slow. The first backup is the slowest.

    Nothing wrong here. It'll take a while. No matter what.
