I have my samba set up to share my external hard drive, which is powered via the plug socket.

I am getting a write speed of about 2 megabyte a second but a read speed of 300 kilobyte a second

When plugged into my laptop i get speeds of about 30MB/s for read and write.

I really needed at least 1-2 megabyte a second speed so i can stream video and music over the connection.

I have just changed the file system from NTFS to EXT2 in the hope i would see some improvements, unfortunately i have seen no improvement at all. Any advice ?
