My System Specs

Default NEW uSB 3 EXT ?'s

Just picked up a new drive (Drive is a WD element se 1tb), this is what I have tryed so far a few times, (maybe I am missing something but) in order to quickly copy files onto this usb3 drive you need to be connected to the computer that the files are on, here I get around 85 MB/s. Then if I want this as a network drive connected to my router I only get 8 MB/s (obviously moving it around to do this). So moving 500 gig of files went from 8 hours bla bla minutes to 1.5 hours idea when connected to the puter with the files on it....

My router is an Asus NT-65U, it has 2 usb 3 ports on it.

Am I doing something wrong or is this the norm?
