My System Specs


Sounds like your plugging the hard drive directly into the router? If so, then it's likely only USB2 and also the translation performed on the router to make it shared eats into the throughput too. I don't think many routers share USB drives at more than 10MB/s. It's just a limitation of having to translate file systems and protocols (most routers use Linux derivatives).

You're better off leaving it plugged into a PC with USB3 and then sharing the drive from that PC. Then you should get the full 85MB/s.
