    one third of when Im runing XP

    Have you applied SP1? It helps a little. But like you, I can't get Vista
    to copy files disk to disk or network to disk like XP. Vista has issues

    In my post I say "VistaSP1", so yes I have sp1

    Even with SP1 its slow, and as you I have noticed the disk speed is
    slower than with XP.

    Any solutions anyone? I have the very latest drivers for everything so
    its not a driver problem.

    If I disable the IPv6 protocol will that do anything to help?

    ANy other ideas?

    Disable the on-board NIC and use a different brand NIC.

    Vista should have drivers for the tens of semi-generic NICs out there.
