[xubuntu] Very slow wired network transfer speed?

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey everyone, I've got an issue with files transferring very slowly over a wired 100Mb network; only when the action is initiated by my Xubuntu machine. To test this I am using my MBP (Gb ethernet) running OS X 10.6, as the 2nd network share, both are using smb shares with the Xubuntu shared folder configured using Samba GUI. Transferring to/from the Xubuntu machine when using the MBP to navigate and transfer the files nets me a speed of ~9.6MB/s, which is all I really expect from the Xubuntu Eee netbook's 100Mb adapter. Transferring to/from the Xubuntu machine when using Thunar (using fuses (HowTos)
