Has anyone had issues with the brightbox router when connecting a USB hard drive? Both myself and a friend have just gotten these routers and both wanted to use the network hard drive functions. We have identical new USB hard drives for this purpose, plus a selection of other ones that have now been used for testing/comparison. All produce the same result - write speeds under 1Mbs. The drives work at expected speeds when connected to laptops etc - around 16Mbs. What is going on? Has the brightbox mounted the drive as a USB 1 device?
Also, I have noticed that the drives spin constantly, they do not spin down to save power or go to sleep as they do when connected to a laptop.
