    disappointing network speed
    I've just installed a LaCie Ethernet disk mini (500 GB) to my router (Zyxel Prestige 600 series, applying to the g standard). The router makes a WIRELESS connection to my MacBook (2006 version , Airport g standard as well) via a airport express base station. So far so good and everything works properly.

    I'm a bit disappointed about the achieved network speed: copying a 1.1 Mb jpeg file to the external disk takes more than a minute. It will take days to make a backup of my harddisk.

    Is this normal?
    Does it make sense to upgrade my MacBook to the n standard and to change the airport express base station for an extreme version?

    .....and I forgot to mention that it's a fast ethernet hard disk and the macBook is situated two arm lengths from the airport express base station without any walls or floors....
