    I'm moving 204MB (111 items) from a networked (external) drive attached to my
    XP machine, over the wireless network to my Vista Machine, and it's taking
    over 6 minutes. My wireless connection allows at least 500Kb/sec transfer
    rates, so why is it taking so long?

    Also, yesterday I was transfering 600MB of photos from my Vista machine to a
    USB drive attached directly to it. The transfer took over 12 minutes. I can't
    imagine why this should take so long.

    I'm using Vista Business. My XP machine is completing these transfers in
    less than half the time.

    What's the story?
