    Let me start with asking the most basic thing, is the MAX speed (4.5MB) of 300 Mb router slow for a NAS drive knowing that I am very close to the router?

    on a wireless network with good connections - i would expect higher than that
    but we need more detail

    type of wireless G, N ?

    can you connect the NAS by cable
    an a PC by cable and compare speeds
