Extremely slow transfer speed ubuntu -> Windows

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I have two laptops, One is running Ubuntu 12.04 (EXT4) the other is running Windows 7 (NTFS). I am copying over 40gb of data (one file) from the Ubuntu laptop to the Windows Laptop. (Browse the shared folder on Ubuntu using Windows copy/paste) But I am getting transfer speeds topping out at ~700kb/s Surely this is not right. I am transferring via wifi on both laptops. My download speeds can reach 7-8mb/s on both laptops, so I know it is not the wifi cards or the router topping out. wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 84:4b:f5:db:b4:85 inet addr: Bcast:192.168.1 (HowTos)
