Question: High Sierra Issues

I have a Quad Core 2013 Mac Pro with 64 Gig ram and a 500 SSD and ever since I have installed High Sierra I have noticed the follow issues:

1) My internet slows way down when doing a time machine backup and when I am copying files to an external drive or a usb stick.

2) My Lacie external drive I use for my time machine backup seems like it's still being accessed even after the time machine backup has been completed and I have automatic time machine turned off? When I try and eject it, it says its being accessed by another program and I have to do a force eject.

I have reset the VRAM a couple of times and does not help. I have also cleaned up my system of unused files and its driving me nuts why this is happening. I have also completed the procedure of deleting the .pls files in the configuration directly to speed up the wifi.

Any help would be appreciated.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
