NIC Teaming on Windows 2008 R2

We have been playing with NIC teaming for a few days now with not much success.  We've tried both a 4 port broadcom and a 4 for intel NIC card.  I have an etherchannel configured on the Cisco 3550 switch for the 4 port NIC Card.  Configurations look like below:

interface Port-channel1
 description TEAMED-NICS
 switchport mode access
 speed 100
 duplex full
 spanning-tree portfast
!
interface FastEthernet0/1 (int fa0/2, fa0/2 and fa0/4 are configured this way too)
 description NIC1
 switchport mode access
 speed 100
 duplex full
 channel-group 1 mode passive

The Server shows I have a 400Mbps connection like it should.  If I do a "show int port-channel 1" it show as up, but its seems I can get any higher than 10Mbps when transfering a file.  I'm not sure what we are missing?  Any ideas

Below is a "show run", "show int port-channel1", "show int port-channel2", and "show etherchannel"

I have two servers, both have a 4 port NIC.  The 4 NIC ports from server1 are in Channel-group 1, and the 4 NIC ports from Server 2 are in Channel-group2.  If I try to transfer a file between the 2 server it only transfers at 10Mbps.  Thanks.
