Slow file transfer Server 2003 to/from SBS 2000 & XP

I'm tired of slow transfers - running at 1 or 2 meg a minute on a 100meg switch.

I have done the usual stuff, and disabled SMB signing, set the TCPACK to 1 and generally farted around, but I'm not sure what else to do. I have the hotfix that fixes TCPACK settings being ignored, but how do I tell that this is what the issue is? I don't want to install a hotfix I don't need.

This happens on pretty much all network access to the 2003 server, be it file copy, file access/open directory listing... I'm pretty sure it was happening when copying some files from a 'nix server to the 2003 box, but we only did that once.  

I've googled this to death, and still can't get anywhere.

RSOP clearly shows the SMB signing as off.

Hello harleyjd,

You may have done this already, but have you ran diagnostics on your NIC.  The manufacturer should have the install.

Also, I would run a network speed test from both servers to see if it's just communication within your network.

Nah, it's not the network or the hardware. The server was running SBS2000 in parallel with the current SBS server, and all transfers were great - getting up to 75mb/sec. Since then we moved everything off, reloaded the server with Windows Server 2003, and now it's crapola.

One thing - after I chenged the TCPACK setting and restarted, things were great for an hour or two. After that, it went on the go-slow again.
