Default Transfer large files over lan

I don't know if this is normal, but I'm currently transfering a 4gig file over my lan to another computer and it's going at 1megaBytes/second.
My main computer, with the large file, is connected to the router with a lan cable (running Vista), and the other computer(running xp) which is connected via a wireless 54g pci card(running at 54g according to the network status).
54g is about 6megaBytes per second and I'm not getting anywhere close to that. My lan connection, according to the network status, is connected at 100megaBits/second. The firewire drive that has the file is running at 400megaBits/second which shouldn't be the bottleneck.

Just because the wireless network says it can do 54Mbps doesn't mean it actually will. I only get 1-1.5MB/sec on my 802.11G network.

That's fantastic news.

The throughput of wireless networks with Encryption enabled is severely degraded versus an unencrypted connection. Even so, wireless throughput in general is balls...

The actual throughput of a 54Mbps connection is actually around 15Mbps.

Take the hard disk read/write speeds into account as well, takes a while...

I don't think so Tim. I just did a HDTach read test on my firewire drive and it's about 45mBytes/second. If a firewire drive can push out that kind of speeds, an internal drive receiving that data wouldn't have any problems.

I've never gotten faster then 1-1.5mbps over a lan connection, and I'm on a wire!

yeah a 54mbps wifi says it can transfer that fast, which is only 6.75MB(MegaBytes), is based on perfect conditions such as no copper tubing or wireing whats soever in the house. if another pc is trying to associate with the AP it sucks up over 50% of bandwidth for that and dont forget that even if it could transfer that fast sometimes CPU's and HDD's cant keep up with those speeds. My business switches i use are 1000mbps and we only get 372mbps(50MegaBytes not megabits) at the most becasue our cpu's and HDD cant keep up. My HDD is only a sata 1.5 and has a slow rpm speed of 5400. anything metal in the area is going to suck up that signal. put a microwave in the area and turn it on and watch what happens. its your own denial of service attack. sometimes a cell phone with the same 2.4ghrz frequency will cause signal loss.
