depends on the speed of your network. If it is a Gigabit network 100mb is normal. see http://www.marco.org/127

Please look at the link i provided again and look for the section that starts with "How about wired networks?" Also note that i talked about normal speed for a Gigabit network, wich is usually wired anyways.

I looked up your router on linksys.com and it provides an 10 or 100 Mbit connection for wired lan.  According to the page i linked even a 100 Mbit lan connection would only get you around 65.6 Mbit/s troughput. So almost 100 Mbit/s is very good. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_device_bandwidths under "Local area network" for a more complete list of transfer speeds.

Also see http://www.pixelbeat.org/speeds.html. Be sure to select the right units in the first table.
