Try running it with as many processes disabled as possible. I haven't tested it in Windows 7 but in Vista there is a problem caused by WMP where it will dedicate most of your bandwidth to "streaming". It doesn't have to be WMP but it's the easiest to verify with. If I copy a file without WMP open I get 80% of the gig connection. Open WMP and it slows to like 10%. I believe there is a thread for the setting in the Networking subforum. It's possible a piece of software you use is tripping this setting.
