Other wired option.
Authored by: channui on Apr 01, '08 09:13:48AM

I had set up my computer to perform the initial backup over wired gigabit ethernet to my Airport Extreme. After about 15 hours of backing up, it had managed to copy about 50GB of data. I aborted that run, wiped the disk and started the backup directly connected and it finished about 170GB overnight, definitely less the 10 hours. While I was watching the network backup with dtrace I saw that there seemed to be significant overhead in copying small files.
