Dear TT Community,
I recently bought a TP-Link gigabit ethernet switch to manage the network I have at home. One of the things I connect is a Raspberry Pi that I use as a NAS server.
When I connect the RPi directly to the switch I can get a 30mb/s read & write speed to HDDs. However, when I connect the NAS drives via the TT router, I get 9mb/s.
I have the HG633 router.
Is there anything obvious that might be throttling the connection? I noticed the TT router only has 100mb ethernet ports so perhaps this is the reason?
The HG633 router does have 100mb ports so there will be a slightly lower transfer speed but the overall communication speeds should not be that noticeable.

What type of Ethernet cabling are you using between the Pi & this switch, Cat 5, 5e or 6? What speed & duplex is the Pi's network adapter actually running at (not necessarily the same as what it is capable of)?
If I understand this correctly, the Pi is controlling multiple HDDs, are mechanical HDDs, SSDs & how do they connect to the Pi, SATA2, 3 etc?
