Usb HDD - better file system

I have an usb hdd (NTFS) attached to the rasp connected to the router by wireless adapter.
I see that copy from another pc to the samba folder or via ftp is really slow.
How can I improve the speed? I must be able to access to this usb hdd also from windows 7.

Re: ext3/4 and SD-card wear leveling

A small question: due the fact that sd has wear problem why not use it only for root and use an external usb hdd drive for the os?
For sure it will be slower but for not intensive usage could be nice.
Suggestions?

Use vodafone internet key as wifi dongle

Hi,
I saw on my windows machine that the vodafone internet key is able to work as wifi dongle.
Is it possible to use it on the raspberry as a wifi dongle?
