Increase data speed to Hitron CODA-4582 Modem/Router thumb drive

I just installed the Hitron CODA-4582 Modem/Router with aFIDO Internet plan. There is a thumb drive on the back of the device where I successfully plugged in a portable hard drive. I'm able to access that portable hard drive from my home computer and I'm trying to backup my files using a known file backup program. The only problem is the speed of data transfer. I'm only able to transfer ~ 2 GB worth of files over a 24 hour period. If you can well imagine, that would take me months to acheive a backup. Any ideas on how to increase the speed of data transfer from my computer to my portable hard drive connected to the USB port of the Hitron Modem/Router?

Hey @mhart1


Is there a reason why you are plugging your backup drive in the modem?


You should normally be able to plug your portable hard drive directly to your computer and backup the files you want by transferring them directly from the computer to the hard drive. 🙂


As for your internet speed, is it the same situation for other usage? (ex. websites, emails, videos online, etc.)
