I am considering to buy a new router. The current one is a TP-Link Archer C7 v2, which is good enough for me except for one thing: file server performance. Even with some NOTRACK rules added, I could not get more than 11 megabytes per second (no matter via SAMBA or via NFS) from an SSD connected via USB SATA adapter.
So, I am interested in benchmark results from other routers, for wired clients, to avoid wasting money on something that would still be too slow for the price. Especially interesting would be results from mvebu-based routers and BananaPi R2 or R64.
PS: I had a HGST 5K1000-1000 HDD hooked up before the ssd, so that's at least what you can expect the esata port can deliver on power. The hdd is listed at 1.6W read/write power.
INFO: I did use a USB3.0 enclosure before and had some problems with the disk getting randomly disconnected and also slower write speeds (50-90 MB/s), that's why i switched to esata. No clue if my usb port is defect or what was going on, but its rock solid now via esata.
Wow >100MB/s is incredible with an SSD, must be my slower 3TB USB 3.0 5400rpm mechanical but never passed 80MB/s. Either way it's still amazing considering almost all other routers are nowhere near the speeds we get for network storage. I'm going to wipe the settings on my WRT32X this weekend and recheck it with the latest build, hopefully I get what you guys are getting. Maybe I'll try eSATA too, never bothered with it. Thanks.
