File transfer speed issue

Well, comparing your smb.conf to mine, the only differences that I see
pertinent is that I use

keepalive = 30

But I honestly think this shouldn't make a performance gain or loss
significant enough to stop data transfer altogether.

The only thing I can say to you at this point is to follow the
DIAGNOSIS.txt that you find in the samba tarball under "docs/textdocs". 
This should help you narrow down where the problem is.  If the problem
is reproducible, then turn on your logging facility and check the log to
see if there is any kind of error messages there.

Sorry I couldn't be of much help.
