No - I've been using the default: 'iperf -c hostxxxx' on laptop, 'iperf
-sD' on router, NAS.

Actually, this morning I've been getting about 17-20 Mbps between the
laptop and NAS. I tried bidirectional testing ('iperf -d -c hostxxxx',
and the results actually remained constant.

I'm still getting only about 13 Mbps between the laptop and router.
