What speed Network interface do each of the clients have?

100Mbits/sec Ethernet will Theoretically get you ~11MBytes/sec due to
the 4/5 encoding and 125MHz signaling rate.
10Mbits/sec Will theoretically get you 1.4MBytes/sec due to the 20MHz
signaling rate with no encoding.

This assumes you are have zero Collisons during the throughput.

Personally, unless you have 1000Mbits/sec Ethernet(Gig), W2K is lying to
